"intuitive, restorative, deliberately uncomplicated cooking... It's always good to see someone who loves what they do, and bright, young sommelier Stuart Sanders clearly jumps out of bed in the morning talking enthusiastically about semillon." Score 14.5/20

"Murdoch lets clean and pure flavours speak for themselves.....It's hard to think of better bistro food than this. In many ways it's simple food - almost old-fashioned or homely - but that's a strength"
- Elizabeth Meryment, Sunday Telegraph Food & Wine, 3 Mar 2013
'This is another trailblazer in the push to redefine pub grub. Think smart, snappy service, softly understated and cocooning surrounds and a menu to intrigue and delight.' Score 14/20

"..a dream local eating house. ....A main course of Thirlmere chicken is as honest as your mother's Sunday roast but with more pizzazz. The flavoursome thigh is transformed into an action-packed ballotine paired with tender breast, earthy lentils & crisp cos lettuce; it's a real winner. Add to that seamless service and a generous wine list and you may be relocating in no time."

"A spacious, elegant room run smoothly by a group of young, sharp staff....The briny goodness of crisp-skinned kiingfish fillet is amplified by a fat crab-filled squid ink ravioli."
- Sydney Morning Herald Good Food Guide 2010
"...the best of the West is undoubtedly the modern European goodness of the Restaurant at 3 Weeds."

- Gourmet Traveller Wine List of the Year Awards 2010
".....Soothing décor, a serious wine list and seamless service...its all about beautifully cooked, robustly flavoured food."
