  • The guide was very informative and entertaining. Loved the way the old house has been restored to (almost) its former glory.

  • I had been here a couple of years ago and went back because it was excellent. However my experience over the weekend was disappointing. Whilst the service was very good, the high tea was not what you would expect for the price. Our sandwiches were dry and had little filling and most of the sweet and savoury treats were brought in or frozen. The only items that seemed to be made on the premises were the scones which were lovely. Pity because it is a beautiful spot but really need to monitor quality of food going out and possibly reassess the menu in such a competitive food environment.
  • What a wonderful surprise tucked away in beautiful Parramatta Park! Great history and well presented. The items on display were very comprehensive and interesting. Best to try and have a guided tour if you can. Also, the restaurant / cafe ("Lachlan's") there was fabulous. We had delicious scones, jam and cream and yummy Hot Chocolate drinks 😀. And the service was excellent and friendly. Congratulations to all involved at the Old Government House.
