Hogget is the name given to a lamb between weaning and first shearing. It is the time when the meat is at its most tender and flavoursome.

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.

We really enjoyed our lunch experience, service was great, and the food was excellent. We appreciated the variation and the availability of lovely fish and vegetables dishes. Well done team Hoggit, you deserve your award. Great for Warragul to have such a wonderful venue.

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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

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!

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.

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!

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.

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.
