Our menu has been designed to work with ingredients that are sourced locally at the peak of their season. Our kitchen prepares each element from scratch, using techniques that have been around for generations. Techniques that ensure you will see and taste each ingredient and remember your meal, long after you leave the table. Our menu is designed to be shared with family and friends as we believe in the importance of connections over food.
A considered execution of gourmet regional produce. The option of ‘Trevor cooks’ for the table makes for a relaxed & enjoyable meal as each dish delights.
Get way to spend an evening, relaxing atmosphere watching a few rabbits running through the vineyard. Staff and food was fantastic.
With our senses turning to the need to live more responsibly, sustainably and healthier in our beautiful planet, I have to admire what Trev has done at Hogget Kitchen. The local produce that Trev sources and prepares in-house, highlights just what is available right on our doorstep. Outstanding quality is found in the food on offer. The trend is for us to look globally for our lifestyles but simplicity, nourishment, contentment along with fine food and local wines, is showcased right here in this lovely restaurant with the stunning glassed walls and countryside views. It is always a delight to dine at Hogget and I look forward to my next visit. Recently I dined on a Wagyu steak that just melted in my mouth.
Well done Trev and Team. May you continue a long time.
Awesome food & service - great place for a fantastic dinner
Loved it! The food was delicious and the wine was fantastic, service and explanation of the food, what it was and where it came from, as we did the 5 courses was impeccable. Thoroughly enjoyed the whole experience. I will be back, and have already recommended to multiple people.
Its probably 12 months since there last, and not surprisingly the menu had changed. Good range of choices, with a lot of gluten free options. Reasonably priced range of wine by the glass, as well as an extensive wine list.
The ambience is always great, particularly when it is daylight enabling the view to be enjoyed.
Had the chef selection. Just right proportions and a great way to sample the menu.
Shiraz was a little disappointing, however the pinot grid was very good.
Sunday breakfast. Presentation was delightful. The coffee was just prefect.
What a hidden gem this place is.
Outstanding! Everything that Trevor cooked for us was emotional, the wine was amazing and they had a good selection of local craft beer.
Unfortunately many large groups and echoing acoustics made venue very noisy which partially spoilt our experience there. Food was outstanding, well thought out and Very tasty. Quantities exactly right and we thoroughly enjoyed the food. Lamb and fish were excellent.Service very attentive and the team did a wonderful job overall.
Always great service and delicious food. We got the banquet option and felt so satisfied at the end. Fantastic wine list too!
Excellent food backed by efficient service. Whiting exceeded expectation, delicious main course balanced by desserts full flavour
Excellent service and delicious food. Definitely worth a visit.
Beautiful location, amazing food and service
Thank you to the team for a beautiful lunch this Thursday past. A place that feels special and comfortable all at the once- beautiful food and wines, I'm not local to the area but will definitely be making a return. Thanks again.
Very enjoyable outing for an anniversary lunch, classy food and great atmosphere
Thoroughly enjoy every visit. The food is exceptional and never disappoints. Thank you Trev and team!
We are raving about our dinner on Saturday night. There were only a few things that I would suggest to review.
1. as much as the setting was beautiful and ambient we thought there was a smell in the area. To me it seemed like stale smoke. (not cigarettes, but wood fire?)
2. New wait staff should probably become much more familiar with the menu and drinks before attending orders.
The food and service was exceptional
Trevor and the whole team at Hogget are a great example of regional Victorian hospitality.
Amazing locally source menu, fresh and bold flavours making allowing the ingredients to shine.
Wine list mainly focus on Gippsland which celebrates why this region is growing as a wine hub.
Service is friendly and warm.
Hoggets it’s all you expect from a great unpretentious regional restaurant.
A hatted restaurant where you can bring the whole family to.
Well done guys.
Our lunch was beautiful! Food was fantastic even though a little on the pricy end. Fantastic view and very accommodating and attentive staff.
We had a lovely evening. Everything was perfect. Food was delicious, staff very attentive and friendly. Thank you.
Highly recommend going here. Lovely venue, excellent service and delicious food.
Unfortunately, the crew were off their game the day we had lunch at Hogget's Kitchen. Some of the food was amazing but some was poor (almost inedible) and it disappoints me to have to say that! I love this place and have always had AMAZING food in the past. I don't think the head chef was in the kitchen on the day...pasta was well under-cooked, food lacked seasoning (salt), and the dishes didn't have the same finesse. So Disappointed!
On a busy day the service and food were fabulous once again!
Very enjoyable. Good food. Good service. Good setting.
Despite terrible weather the views are spectacular and great to know the food is locally sourced and made on site. Loved the fact that a native bush food garden is underway.
Had a wonderful lunch to spend time with my husband as we had been very busy
The dining experience was every bit as good as rumoured! A funky building in the midst of the vineyard and views across the valley from a table by the window. Food and wine of course were the main event, served by skilled an friendly staff. We even got to meet the guy who wears that chef's hat. Well done Trevor, Anne and all!
We had a wonderful afternoon, and have already recommended you to family and friends. We'll be back for more.
I feel so fortunate to have this amazing restaurant so close to home. I’ve been here for weddings, family celebrations, business meetings, romantic date nights & quiet meals for one, and it never disappoints. Congratulations to Trevor, Jess & the team on their recent awards. Keep up the great work.
A very calm, warm and inviting location that instantly makes you feel relaxed. Trev and his team never disappoint with the food on offer an amazing experience in itself, my friends and I are definitely becoming regulars.
Outstanding food and wine, great service by the staff, will be sure to return
Phenomenal food, very attentive staff and an amazing atmosphere. Will definitely return.
Amazing experience. Trevor has done an incredibly job with the menu and restaurant as a whole, Highly recommend the "Let Trev cook for you" option.
This was my first time at Hogget Kitchen and I was blown away.
The food was so light and fresh and full of flavour.
Very good value for money and I would highly recommend to friends and family.
We sat next to the window and the view looking out was beautiful.
The staff were very friendly and knowledgeable about the menu and food being served.
First experience at Hogget kitchen and it did not disappoint! Had a wonderful Saturday lunch for my mother-in-law's birthday. We brought our 3.5yo child, who usually doesn't last very long in restaurants, however the waitresses were so lovely and offered to bring drawing paper and pens after he had finished his meal. They even went so far as to freshly squeeze some orange juice at his request! I could enjoy the beautiful food, wine and views with my husband and mother-in-law. As it was lunch, we had starters and entrees alongside freshly baked bread and the Hogget Merlot. Everything tasted amazing and it was so nice to know that the majority of the food is locally sourced. Very happy to pay that little bit more knowing that we were eating good wholesome food!
Hogget's Kitchen is a wonderful dining experience, where the creatively composed dishes, contain the highest quality, local ingredients - quality that you can taste. The wine selection is excellent (including some grapes and vintages from local wineries I didn't know, but loved trying). The setting is perfect in gorgeous South Gippsland and the service is friendly. I would love to go back and enjoy a wine and more food on their wonderful deck with the view over the rolling hills covered in vines. A really wonderful dining experience, worth going out of your way for.
Beautiful venue looking over rows of vines & surrounding countryside. Food very enjoyable with a number of light choices and six or so mains. Trout entree very light on trout heavy on the gelee. Rib Eye steak for $100 for 600 grams was a little expensive and the portion size light on especially given much of it is bone. Still very tasty. Reasonable selection of wines predominantly from the local area. Overall very pleasant experience.
