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

Our Stumpy Gully Functions & Events 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.

The seated offering provides you with your choice of two Entrées | two Mains and optional Dessert 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 included in the package with no additional venue hire fee. Our event menus start at $95 per guest.
