Disappointed - we've been to the Duckstein on numerous occasions but not for a while and unfortunately it will be a while before we return 😞. The menu is limited and if you're not interested in the pork knuckle then don't bother to go to eat. I had the spinach parcel & was struggling to find any filling & my... More

The building, landscaping, and surroundings here are amazing. Love the wide open spaces inside and out, and the massive modern fireplace. The food here is equally good... especially the pork knuckle (Schweinshax’n). Wasn't too impressed with the beer though. We had the beer tasting tray and only liked 2 out of the 5. Service is amazing. Staff were attentive &... More

As we travelled in May to Margaret River it was quiet at the brewery however we can just imagine how busy this place would be in the warmer months. We had lunch there and even though it was a basic meal it was a good atmosphere and amazing scenery. The other attraction to this brewery is that you can see... More

My wife is German, and I love German food. I order the fried pan of potatoes, sausage, sour kraut and smoked pork chop. Just like I had it in Germany! My wife had cooked mushroom in pastry and salad. The dark beer was also delicious- very mild and "moorish"! Not a trace of bitterness, while my other half had some... More

The German themed brewery/restaurant situated in the heart of the Margaret River wine region is a great place to spend lunch. The food is great we had the Vein schnitzel and a hefeweizen beer. Worth getting in early or booking as it was very busy on the long weekend. The views from the restaurant are spectacular with a lake, surrounding... More

My other half lived in Germany for a few years and I have visited for a holiday so we had an urge for some German food. The grounds of the Duckstein are expansive and elaborate. They have their very own island, but it is just lovely to sit on the veranda overlooking their lake and eating and drinking. The German... More

Duckstein make good beers (not always the best), but any shortcomings are soon forgotten when dinning in with high quality good sized feed meals (book during busy periods). It is great to walk around the premises, garden, playground and island lake to work off some calories and get the blood alcohol level down.

The meal was nice, they had gluten free options and they also modified 2 meals to be gf for us. They have good selection of wines and... More
