You must remain seated at your tables whilst consuming food and beverages. You are not allowed to mingle with other tables. Please ensure you keep 1.5 metres distance to other patrons
What happens if I have booked outside and it rains on the day?
Because we are under such tight restrictions with numbers undercover the likelihood is that we won’t be able to move your table undercover on the day. To guarantee undercover seating please book this on our website
Are you pet friendly?
You are welcome to bring a well-behaved dog on a lead. Dogs are welcome on the grassed area only
Why do you ask for a credit card upon booking?
We ask you to provide a credit card authorisation for groups of 8 or more people which is $10 per person. We do this because we are limited to a total capacity of 300 people and if you have made a booking for 30 people and do not show up this is not fair to others customers who want to book. This does not mean your card will be charged when you enter your details. Your card will only be charged if you do not show up on the day.
How do I book the bus?
You can book the bus on our website via the Book The Bus tab at the top of the page
Can I be picked up at another location that’s not listed for the bus?
Unfortunately, this is not currently possible, pick up and drop off points cannot be altered.
Can we book in a tasting?
If you are coming just for a tasting you will need to book to be included in our overall capacity. Wine and spirit tastings can be done in small groups of 3-4 people which must be conducted whilst seated. During the week it's not a problem to just walk in and take a seat at the cellar door. On weekends you'll need to book a table and have a meal and you are welcome to do a tasting whilst there.
Are your brewery tours running at the moment?
Unfortunately brewery tours are not running at the moment due to social distancing rules and staff availability. We will let you know once they resume.
