We went for a family meal at the Vintners Room and really enjoyed it. The menu is classic and simple - for entree we were offered a choice of clams and mussels with white wine, cream, bacon and Gruyere cheese (absolutely delicious; I could have licked the plate and almost did); pork terrine with pea puree and pickled mustard seeds; and a third choice that now escapes my memory (a day of wine tasting will do that to you). Mains were pork belly, a beautifully cooked fillet of beef with roasted potatoes, baby beetroot and broad beans, king salmon or a vegetarian tasting plate. We also managed desserts - affogato for Mum, ice cream for my brother and I opted for the lemon curd creme brulee, all of which were delicious.
The menu isn't lengthy, by any means, but what they did, they did really well. In my opinion, that's a much better philosophy for restaurants to adopt than having hundreds of dishes to choose from - it means fresher ingredients, a regularly changing menu and a real focus on the dishes they do feature.
The service was excellent; friendly and punctual, and the waitress had some good recommendations to make about the wine and also other wineries in the area. It's not the cheapest place to eat, but for the quality of the food, the wine and the general experience, it didn't seem unreasonable.
