Throughout the year, our English style Tavern cellar-door offers a beautiful escape for those exploring our fantastic region. Surrounded by beautiful landscaped gardens our large courtyard has ample seating for the warmer months, lawn games & a bocce court. In winter we offer a cosy interior, board games & warm spiced cider.
Our cellar-door & bar is open daily for tastings, drinks & take away sales with no bookings required. We often reach capacity at lunchtime on weekends, so please avoid 12-3pm to ensure we have the best chance of finding you a table.
Our very popular Cider Tasting Paddle ($15) is a must, and takes you through our core range of ciders plus a few seasonal offerings. Our drinks list also includes a number of local wines, beers, soft drink & espresso coffee.
Our restaurant is open Friday to Monday & can be booked online up to 28 days in advance for 2 – 14 guests. Reservations require a deposit of $35pp which acts as a minimum spend per cover & is applied as a credit on the day. Please visit our Book Now page for full details & to secure your table.
Our modest, seasonal menu often boasts fresh, local produce & our kitchen team always ensures that we have something gluten free, vegetarian & vegan on offer. Please note dietary requirements during the online booking process, or by responding to your booking confirmation email.
During the cooler months our a la carte menu offers hearty, comforting homemade fare to suit the season, whereas summer enables us to use our outdoor wood fired pizza oven & the focus is on relaxed, shared dining.
For larger dining groups & private functions please call or email us.
