Probably my favourite vineyard for its gorgeousness, but the food really is outstanding. If you get the breads and dips to start, be hungry as it fills you up, the pate is AMAZING! The offer of sparkling water not just still is a great touch. The only thing I'd say could do with some attention are the floor tiles, could... More

We visited Wither Hills on an organised tour, this was our stop for lunch and the food was outstanding. My boyfriend still raves about the pork belly burger!! The wine tasting was excellent too, but the highlight was definitely the food!

I.e Fish and mash wasn't great, needed a small... More

Ordered the platter for three of us as a 'light' lunch. Thoroughly enjoyed it, and was more than enough food! Can't wait to go back!
