Three of us for lunch. A cold, rainy, blustery winter day. The warm welcome was appreciated. It was mid-week, so quiet. The service was pleasant and attentive. The large "glass house" was magnificent, with its stunning outdoor surrounds. Lamb burgers and starters were all interesting...More

I have a mixed review, the duck parfait was beautiful as was the Salmon starter. We enjoyed the 'paddle' wine tasting with them. However, the wait staff checking on us, "is everything ok?" With seconds of each other was annoying and badly managed. The Canadian...More

Again, a stunning experience at this exceptional place. The food was to their usual high standard, their wine grown on their vineyard - Rose was gorgeous. Service is warm and friendly and unfaultable. Love the whale tail knives! We'll be back soon.

Description
Discover a new world as you gaze down on The Glass House, hovering like a coloured jewel beside the vineyard, cantilevered over the waterlily-fringed lake. This unique building is open daily year round, where you can choose to taste our range of wines, enjoy a glass as you relax on our generous decks or simply purchase bottles to take home. We're excited to offer you our fresh new menu, showcasing local produce and seasonal ingredients. Do come and experience dishes that we love and flavours we are passionate about. Download the Menu> This is truly a building for all seasons as you watch the birdlife on the lake on a summer's afternoon, or feel the fury of winter as the rain lashes the lake and sends the overflow beneath you in a veritable waterfall. Metres away are the vines, with the building's transparency letting you possibly observe the pruning process, leaf-plucking, fruit thinning, and if the time is right, the harvest itself!
