Babbingtons is a lovely restaurant where we have dined many times. They have a new menu which is even better than it was. The food was excellent with attentive staff and a quiet atmosphere. We had a lovely evening and will be back again before long.

This is the only restaurant I can find that can cook a well done steak without it being dried up and tasteless. So they either have a brilliant chef or excellent quality beef or both. Not sure which is the case, but either way it was great. 10/10.

Food punches way above its weight. We were definitely delighted with our meals. The only feedback would be to be a little more generous with the chips that go with the grills. The lighting was a little bright but otherwise atmosphere was lovely particularly the views out to the bush land all lit up. The deserts were divine and everything was pretty good value for money. This is our third visit and we will continue to return for the great food and friendly service.

Babbingtons has a wonderful menu. The food is delicious and we could not fault the service. Perfect for a romantic meal or lunch with friends. We will be coming back soon.

About Babbingtons Bar & Grill

The babble about Babbingtons The star restaurant at the Best Western Plus Apollo International Hotel Newcastle, Babbingtons Bar & Grill is not just your average hotel diner. Sitting on the side of Pacific Highway in Charlestown, it’s probably the last place you’d expect to find a fine-dining restaurant. But it’s well worth the stop. In fact, people come from far and wide just to sample Executive Chef Sam Beatty's seasonal menus. With over 16 years' experience in the hospitality industry this New Zealand born chef cooks with from the heart, stating that 'food doesn't need to be complicated, [it's] a process that begins with premium ingredients, sourcing the best of what is available locally and seasonally, and then focusing on flavour'. Be sure to sample Sam's signature dishes (marked in the menu with a chef's hat), and if you order two courses of his signature dishes you'll receive a complimentary glass of Wild Oats wine to enjoy with your main meal. Hotel guests are also in for a treat – Babbingtons offers an equally incredible breakfast menu that you can even have delivered to your room for the ultimate breakfast in bed. Best dish: any of Sam's signature dishes
