Discover relaxed fine dining at Boydell’s Restaurant

Our award winning restaurant is located in a character filled slab hut building in the heart of the charming historic village of Morpeth, in the Hunter Valley. We offer a truly memorable and intimate dining experience in our 36 seat venue. Our contemporary menu crafted by our talented team has a strong focus on locally sourced seasonal produce. The menu changes seasonally, with weekly specials, all with Boydell’s wines forefront of mind, delivering a wonderfully harmonious experience.


Our lunch menu (Thursday to Saturday) offers flexibility for a quick work lunch, a light lunch with friends, or to settle in for the afternoon & indulge in a banquet with your nearest & dearest.  For dinner & all day dining on Sundays, we’re renown as the place for special celebrations, an intimate venue for a “date night” or as a special treat.  Select a minimum two courses from our seasonal menu, or graze your way through a range of small plates, larger plates & desserts. We can’t wait to welcome you to Boydell’s.

Our sunny courtyard is the perfect spot for springtime dining, and the large open fireplace in the heart of the restaurant keeps us cosy in the winter months.

With its rustic wooden beams and corrugated iron, our unique restaurant nods to the colonial past. Charles Boydell’s journals tell us that he regularly made the voyage from Paterson to Morpeth via paddle steamer – we wanted to capture this authenticity to honour our namesake.

“Fantastic dining experience. Best I have had in a long time. Food was amazing and served promptly. I had the Reserve Shiraz Viognier with my main which is beautiful. Great atmosphere from the rustic timber construction of the 1800’s era building. And quiet enough to actually talk without needing to raise your voice. Just terrific IMHO” – Jeremy
