Description: Silkwood Wines has a magnificent Lakeside Cellar Door & Restaurant where meals are created from fresh seasonal local produce to accompany our cool climate wines. Beautifully set into the surrounding karri forest, Silkwood's cellar door and restaurant is truly breathtaking. Overlooking a tranquil 17 acre lake provides the perfect vantage point to appreciate Pemberton's charm. Our Cellar Door & Restaurant is open 10am to 4pm Friday, Saturday, Sunday and Monday for lunch and wine tasting/sales. Our wines are crafted with individual attention and focus on expressing the distinct varietal characteristics renowned of the Pemberton wine region. The wines are carefully crafted with 100% fruit grown on our vineyard, which enhances the uniqueness and individuality of the wines. Silkwood Wines have four luxury five star chalets located on the vineyard. After a picturesque drive through our vineyard the chalets are set behind our cellar door and away from the daily hustle and bustle of daily life. The chalets are set lakeside, individually themed and architect designed.

“Absolutely Stunning”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 7, 2014

Wow what a place!!! Most enjoyable part of my holiday. Loved everything about this place, such a stunning view looking down from the verandah out to the beautiful lake and garden. Loved the wide verandah's and beautiful garden landscape, so much effort has gone into making this place stunning. The food and service was great as well. Thanks, will be back.

“Don't waste your time or money”
1 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 3, 2014

We went to the Silkwood on Dec 29, and won't be going back. What a disappointment after the gorgeous entrance, and lovely setting from the verandah. We had called ahead and made a booking, but there was a lot going on at reception and we waited a while to be seated. The wine tasting is done in the reception area, totally ridiculous, and clogs up the area with the reservations book and cash register. After 15 minutes we finally managed to get someone's attention to order our meal. Catch of the Day ordered by all 4 of us was a Scallop and Mango salad. An hour later we were still waiting, and had to attract attention to order more drinks. Upon asking of a passing waiter he went away and came back to tell us that our meal had been taken to another table by mistake and it was on it's way. Another 5 minutes and I asked to speak to the Manager. Sandra came out and apologised and assured us the meal was coming. It arrived after another 15 minutes. What a let down, it was horrible. My husband and I started to eat and decided no thanks. I called the Manager again and explained that the service was terrible, we had waited too long, and now this meal was rubbish and we would not be paying for it. It was not worth $28 for a load of lettuce and little else. My friend asked Sandra if the mango was from a can, which it clearly was. Sandra said she would find out. At which point I told her that as the Manager surely she should know! I also asked that we not be treated as idiots and expected to believe that there happened to be another table of four who happened to order the same meal as us. Sandra apologised and agreed that we would not pay for the meal. By now we had wasted way too much time, and were too late to visit the winery we wanted to that day. People at another table were also complaining that they had been waiting over an hour also, and no one had been to their table to take more drink orders. So we left hungry and withour plans shot! Not a good recommendation for Silkwood.

“Lovely location, choice not inspiring”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed December 14, 2013

Silkwood is a beautiful estate. Dine in or out and the surroundings cannot be faulted. The staff are pleasant enough, but very young and one youngster took herself and us rather seriously when we jokingly suggested a discount. Later she remembered customer care and the discount was applied!
I felt that the food, though pretty good and well-prepared, didn't live up to the standard of the surroundings and the wine - which is excellent - in matters of choice and found the limited menu a bit dull. But never mind, eh? It was a lovely place to be at lunch-time.
