Perfect for cold winter day

We went their with our family from old to young and the food and choice of food was perfect. The setting was perfect for our family from Dubai as it was raining outside so we were sitting inside next to fire. The lamb shank was a bit small but big enough for the ladies. The steak is to be... read more

The setting is tranquil, it has indoor & outdoor seating, and a cozy fireplace for winter time. The menu is compact but diverse, & the food was excellent. We enjoyed ourselves so much we went back the next day as we all wanted to try a different menu option! It's also kid friendly with an outdoor jungle gym and space... More

Nice menu and food options but lacks substance. Fillet and pie were well prepared but not great. Location is good for a day in the vineyards. Craft beer is a refeshing touch but quite expensive. Very highly spoke of but did not deliver.

96 Winery is nestled in the midst of vineyards. In summer, great views with oudoor dining. In winter, fireplaces in every room with warm, welcoming staff and a great fine dining menu. They also offer a wine paring menu.

We were recommended this restaurant and 13 of us went on a busy Friday night. I thikn everyone chose the steak and this was paraded around the table by the waiting staff for everyone to choose the type of steak they would like. The atmosphere was very friendly and the venue had quite an intimate feel to it. I don't... More

I have been here a few times for lunch and dinner and the food is always great and service is friendly and good but if they are really full and busy it can be a bit slow. I would advise to make a booking before hand as they tend to get busy. The duck cherry pie, fillet, burger is just... More
