Sir and M'Lady Dine Out a lot - and right across Australia. We know what we like and don't like. We are prepared to try restaurants and share our views. We recognise that not everyone likes the same things (even we don't between the two of us) and not every experience at a restaurant is the same - we all want different things. We have one of Australia's fastest growing diverse restaurant blogs.

CHISHOLMS - JENOLAN CAVES NSW
Jenolan Caves is an amazing place and one of our favourites for so many reasons. Apart from the wonderful natural beauty of the countryside they also have magnificent caves. However, from a culinary
perspective there's also the charming experience of their fine dining restaurant - Chisholms - nestled on the first floor of the deliciously old world Jenolan Caves House.
The steamed vegetables were excellent. piping hot and very fresh and tasty. For $10.00 they were reasonable value.
The cheese platter came in a serving for one for $18.00 or for two fro $28.00 - we went for the serving for one. It came with three cheeses - stilton, maffra red wax cheddar and Tarago Valley brie, served with toasted sourdough and apple slices. The cheeses also came with plenty of water crackers - it was a decent sized serving and the quality was good too.
We had a bottle of Bantry Grove Merlot from Orange. It was a pleasant merlot and was $35.00.
Chisholms has an amazing old world charm. The food is good, the service is excellent and the surroundings are extremely quaint. The food is not cheap but its quite good quality. There are some things though that they could do here to make this restaurant really take off!
