Lunch options plus more and more!
We stop for lunch at the Matilda Bay Brewhouse Cafe at the Hunter Valley Resort. Select the great value tour lunch option for $25 per person. Choose from great chicken, lamb, fish, vegetarian and other dishes. Your driver/guide will have the menu for you to view and pre-order in advance.
Alternatively, you are welcome to purchase your own lunch on the day from the Matilda Bay Brewhouse Cafe. Note: during periods of peak demand e.g. long weekends, public holidays & the Christmas-New Year period, the Hunter Resort is a very popular venue. To avoid wait times and a guaranteed reserved table, we strongly recommend doing the tour lunch option.
Spend enough time at the Hunter Resort to experience their unique beer tasting paddle with accompanying tasting notes for up to 12 beers – at your expense. Or if you prefer, wander next door to the Hermitage Road Cellars to continue some more wine tasting. Nowhere in the Hunter can you try so many wines all under the one roof! An exclusive range of premium wines from small Hunter Valley winemakers – including Helé Family, Lisa McGuigan, David Hook, Andrew Thomas, Andrew Margan, Polin & Polin, Stormy Ridge, Crisford Family – just to mention a few…
Note: NO BYO lunch permitted.
