About Us...

Established in 2003 by owners Tony and Nicole Worland, Tonic restaurant is located in the centre of the village of Millthorpe in Central Western NSW.

 

The menu has a seasonal focus and showcases the best from local producers such as Mandagery Creek Venison and Cowra Lamb. Over the last eleven years the restaurant has regularly been awarded a chef's hat by the Sydney Morning Herald Good Food Guide.

 

Tony has had the honour of working beside renowned chefs Matt Moran, Michael Manners and Gordon Ramsay during his career. The experience he has gained is brought to the fore at Tonic and reflected in the quality of food produced by his team.

 

Only twenty minutes from the foodie mecca of Orange and three hours west of Sydney, we are ideally located for a weekend away to enjoy the regions vineyards and fine local produce.

We look forward to welcoming you soon!

“Classic dishes with contemporary style include succulent pork belly, contrasting with crisp rind and perfectly matched with sweet chilli jam and slightly tart apple chutney. It’s all so stylish without really trying”.

“Chef Tony Worland, who has worked with famous chefs Gordon Ramsay and Matt Moran, is a maestro behind the stove, creating a contemporary menu based around seasonal local produce”.

“The inspired menu featuring sophisticated dishes created by a careful hand. The menu has a strong seasonal focus and Tonic makes an effort to source-high quality local ingredients such as Cowra lamb and beautifully tender pork from Forbes”.

“Good looking and popular, Tony is a born host. He also happens to be the proverbial ‘genius in the kitchen’.
Australian Country Style Magazine

 

“Worland’s time with some of the state’s best chef’s shows at the first taste. A complimentary appetiser, itself a rare treat in a restaurant in the bush, is delivered with nothing more than the description of “pumpkin soup”. Creamy sweet, with a drizzle of truffle oil, it shows Worland can cook.

“Desserts such as baked crème caramel with poached rhubarb will have you pondering a tree change”.

‘Food is always technically spot-on, the staff professional and Worland uses local produce as much as possible”.
