Award-winning Chisolm's Restaurant
Our Head Chef leads an enthusiastic, hard-working team.
Caves House hotel was designed in 1897 by Walter Liberty Vernon, in the 'Federation Arts & Crafts' style, as a retreat for the wealthy. Vernon, Government Architech from 1890 to 1911, designed many landmark buildings, including the Art Gallery of NSW. At Caves House, Vernon's design included an enormous grand dining room, completed in 1924, now the magnificent Chisolm's Restaurant. It is one of Australia's two remaining 'grand dining rooms' from that era - one reason why it stands out amongst Blue Mountains restaurants.
Eating in the grand dining room is an experience in itself!

Miss Chisolm, our resident 'ghost'
