We are also excited to announce that we will be opening up two picnic tables on our Summer Deck for couples or parties of up to 6 to enjoy the Dining Restaurant Menu al fresco. The tables are under umbrellas and whilst we have cafe blinds to help with the wind, these tables are ultimately exposed to Melbourne’s weather. Booking is essential and we politely ask our guests to acknowledge that should the weather make al fresco dining uncomfortable, and our restaurant is fully booked, we will be unable to move your reservation inside.

Dining Seasonal Menu
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 push to achieve an accomplished offering four times a year. Our Head Chef and Owner Shane Burke draws on years of experience at some of Melboune’s best restaurants aswell as his years working in the Mediterranean on various Superyachts. His food draws on the natural beauty of the ingredients; their flavours, textures and aromas. Producing dishes for the senses; visually pleasing, a full taste sensation and a couple of surprises. We hope for our menus to leave you feeling the passion, hard work and warmth that goes into every dish.
Our A La Carte Dining Menu currently consist of four Entrées, Mains and Desserts with Cheese plates for our guests. Two Courses $65 | Three Courses $80.
Summer Deck | Grazing Menu

When weather permits, and at our discretion, we open our Summer Deck for our guests to partake in the best wines Stumpy Gully has to offer married with a grazing menu for you to enjoy whilst soaking up the fabulous vista of the vines.
If you simply want to partake in a glass of wine and something from our Grazing Menu then we do not require our guests to make a reservation.
