Hermitage Lodge’s award-winning Hunter Valley restaurant

Il Cacciatore is part of Hermitage Lodge, but you don’t have to be a hotel guest to enjoy a delicious meal at the restaurant. Il Cacciatore has long been a favourite of Hunter Valley locals and for good reason. At Il Cacciatore, you will enjoy fresh, simple and generous servings of classic Italian dishes in a relaxed, family-friendly setting.


Our new Autumn-Winter menu is starting mid-April

Come and enjoy hearty winter dishes like pea and mint gnocchi with braised osso buco ragu, spaghetti with pork and fennel meatballs, and warm apple and rhubarb crumble for dessert. And don’t worry, we’re keeping our popular items on the menu, so you can still order our favourite steamed mussels and chicken bosciaola. 

Il Cacciatore is open for dinner seven nights from 6pm; Lunch on Saturdays and Sundays from 12pm and takeaway is available for pickup from 5pm on weeknights and from 12pm on weekends. A children’s menu is available from 6pm and 6.30pm, reservations only.
