Stumpy Gully Functions under Covid Restrictions

Stumpy Gully Vineyard | Dining & Events is committed to the health and comfort of our guests and our wonderful employee family.  We are very happy to play our role in helping Victoria and Australia through this global pandemic and to the recovery on the other side.  To those means we have enacted a thorough and extensive ‘Covid Safe’ plan and we will be following the restrictions provided to us by the Victorian State Government.

When we reopen we will be applying the rules of the ‘Third Stage’ which allows us to have 10 guests in our Dining Room and 10 in our Barrel Room.

Group bookings are also restricted to 10 guests.

We hope to quickly move to the ‘Last Step’ which will allow us to return to 20 guests in our Dining and Barrel Rooms over and groups of up to 20 guests will be allowed.

Christmas Parties | Family Events | Get Togethers before Christmas: Although it is very hard to predict at what Covid Stage we will be at in the run up to the Christmas | Summer Holidays we are hopeful that we will be at least on the ‘Last Step’ which will allow is to take bookings of up to 20 guests. Until further notice we will not be taking confirmed bookings for any group larger than 20.

Stumpy Gully Dining & Events is uniquely positioned to be able to provide our venue for smaller more intimate groups. Our Private Dining experience can be booked for couples whilst our $75 function menus are available to groups of just 20.

We look forward to welcoming you to Stumpy Gully Vineyard & Dining.

Our Menus are seasonal and inspired by the best produce available to our kitchen. Whilst we are a small team we set ourselves big goals and work hard to achieve an accomplished offering four times a year. Our Head Chef and Owner Shane Burke draws on twenty five years of experience at some of Melbourne’s best restaurants as well as his years working in the Mediterranean on Superyachts. His food draws on the natural beauty of the ingredients; their flavours, textures and aromas. Shane produces dishes for the senses; visually pleasing, a full taste sensation and a couple of surprises. Our hope is that the dishes leave you feeling the passion, hard work and warmth that goes into every element.

Our event menus start at $75 per guest. This will provide you with either a a two course seated menu or a roaming canapés offering for 3 hours.

The seated offering provides you with your choice of two Entrées and two Mains selected from the current Dining Menu; this is not a ‘function’ menu, you get to choose from our full seasonal restaurant menu. And we can serve you either alternate drop or shared style – it is up to you. You will also be served with complimentary sides | bread and house-made butter and cafetière coffee and tea.

Exclusive use of the Barrel Room is available for groups of twenty and above with no additional venue hire fee.

If you are thinking of a roaming style | stand up event we have a canapés offering with substantial bowls to eat on your feet. You can choose from a comprehensive menu for your event with menu items for a casual to a more sophisticated and refined food offering.

You will also receive complimentary cafetière coffee and tea.

Our canapés offering is available for groups of twenty and above with exclusive use of our Barrel Room as part of the package. There is no additional venue hire fee.
