Quite a delightful and tasteful three course lunch experience. Our waiter Andre was knowledgeable of the wine list and helped us pair to the food. Great location and venue.

Circa 1876 was a fun, enjoyable dining experience. The food was delicious, a combination of excellent produce and a masterly touch int he kitchen. The staff were attentive and very friendly, and the venue itself is a lovely place to sit and enjoy good company, great food and excellent wines.

Disappointed that the degustation menu and cocktails were unavailable on the night and not discussed when I booked

Incredible venue - absolutely charming and an experience just walking into the restaurant. Great menu where the protein definitely serves as the star in the dishes I had (Scallops and Duck). Would recommend to anyone visiting the Hunter.
