At EXP. our focus is to create a dining EXP.erience that is delicious, entertaining and interactive. Food is at the heart of EXP. and the menu is driven by the seasons and produce. The team sources local produce as much as possible, with quality always being the key. With these ingredients the kitchen creates dishes that are an EXP.ression of Australian cuisine. The restaurant is located in Pokolbin, the heart of the Hunter Valley. The dining room is chic and intimate with hand crafted furniture. Guests can sit along the bar and peer directly into the kitchen while interacting with Chef Frank Fawkner and his team. The restaurant garden sits just beyond the confines of the dining room. Best dish: Warm Blue Cheese, brioche, honey.
