Had the gin tasting paddle. Loved the different guns and the way it was presented! An accompanying meat platter was excellent. A great place to stop in the Adelaide Hills.

Sat outside overlooking pleasant countryside on a quiet day, tasted their 3 gins, all different and interesting. Liked the developing herb walk in, showcasing gin ingredients. Good concept, fun stop in Hahndorf.

I hadn't heard of Ambleside until the morning of our spontaneous trip to the Hills. I'm so glad we decided to pop in on our way back into Adelaide. We had already luched and therefore didn't eat there but saw burrata on the menu and...More

Beautiful view from the deck as we enjoyed our gin tasting in the winter sun. We loved the botanical gin and purchased a bottle before leaving the premises. Beautiful way to spend a couple of hours.
