We will be adhering to the following government regulations; maximum group size of 10 pax, 1 person per 4sqm across each space up to a maximum venue capacity of 75 pax indoors. We are required to check guest’s ID to ensure they reside in Regional Victoria, so please be kind & compassionate to our staff while they fulfil these duties placed on hospitality venues.
To secure a table, a deposit of $35pp is required, which is applied as a credit towards your total bill.
If your preferred day and time is not available online, please ‘join waitlist’ so we can notify you if a table becomes available.
Reservations are strictly 2 hours. Our a la carte menu consists of hearty, comforting homemade dishes to suit the season and caters for vegan, vegetarian & gluten free. We appreciate prior notice of all dietary requirements at time of booking, or by replying to your booking confirmation email.
Our cellar-door & bar is open 7 days a week for tastings, drinks & take home cider purchases, and no bookings are required to visit. There is ample time during your dining reservation to enjoy a cider tasting and other drinks – you do not need to organise this separately.
Children: Capacity regulations require all children over 12 months to be counted. Due to health & safety of our staff & guests, we ask that children remain seated at the table throughout your booking, however you are welcome to enjoy the outdoor areas afterwards.
Areas: We have well heated, character-full indoor dining spaces, as well as a large courtyard. The courtyard has recently been covered by a marquee, however is not currently heated, so please dress appropriately if selecting this option as a move indoors on the day may not be possible. Guests are not entitled to a refund due to poor weather & are responsible for amending their booking in advance.
Pet Friendly Outdoors: We are very much dog friendly to friendly dogs, so if your pooch is joining you for lunch please select to dine in the Courtyard. Please keep them on a leash and clean up after then.
Live Music: We occasionally host live music, so please visit the Events page to see what is coming up. If you make a dining reservation to coincide with the live music, please make a note in Comments that you are coming specifically for the music so that we can ensure you have a suitable table for the entire show.
Scanning In: There is limited mobile reception onsite so please download the Services Vic App in advance.
Visiting for Drinks & Tastings Only: Our capacity limit is often reached over lunch time on weekends, so we recommend visiting before midday or after 3:30pm so that we have a better chance of offering you a table. During the week you are welcome to pop in anytime for a drink – there’s no need to book.
Group bookings: If you are organising a group booking for tastings/drinks, or a dining reservation of more than 14 pax – please email us your contact number, or give the cellar-door a call.
