Excellent food and great wine selection. Wine tasting was tremendous trying all the different varieties and finding out the history of the area and about the founders of the company. The views from the restaurant are fantastic and great for photo opportunities.

Having visited Brancott many a time I was sadly disappointed. The male wait staff working on Sunday the 3rd of July was rude rushed and unprofessional. Brancott had always been top of my list to bring friends and family from out of town but this experience has left me considering my options. Food was wonderful but this was let down... More

When you arrive the shuttle pickes you up from the car park and takes you up the hill to the centre. The building blends into the landscape with clean lines and a wall of windows. The view of the vines goes on forever. We watched the short movie, tasted some wine then enjoyed a beautiful lunch. The staff were friendly... More

Had been wanting to experience this place for ages. It lived up to everything I had heard about it. Food exceptional, wine lovely, view outstanding. We had an extremely long and relaxing lunch. We were there for a friends birthday, so a special time, and the atmosphere as well as being chilled , was celebratory. Perfect combination.

A last minute decision to try Brancott, glad we did, parked up, shuttle came down, but a beautiful day meant we walked up, which was nice. We had a table overlooking a stunning view of the vineyard, staff were great, very attentive and friendly, Good knowledge of the wines and the food was lovely. Finished with a stroll down to...
