We are thrilled to have recommenced dining in, for breakfast & lunch, seven days a week from the 29th of October.
Numbers are very limited & for this reason there are a couple of changes to the way we do things.-
BREAKFAST service daily between 8.30am -11am.
LUNCH service daily between 11.45am -3.30pm.
Bookings will be staggered during these service times.
With inside numbers currently so limited & our weather being so unpredictable, some areas outside will be walk in only & unfortunately some will have no ‘plan B’ for inclement weather.
For a short time, as we progress through the roadmap increments, we kindly ask that all bookings be made over the phone. Please ring our friendly staff to make your booking on 03 5989 8088.
All Covid safe operating procedures are in place & will continue to be updated in line with evolving requirements.
*Please note; due to acting within the government roadmap we are only able to accept diners who are fully vaccinated at this time.

4 friends meeting for lunch and a chat after many weeks of lockdown. One of the few restaurants open on a Wednesday in the area and booking was easy & efficient. Food was nice but a small serve, so not great value. Choice was also limited, but some unusual dishes to choose from. Staff were friendly and helpful, so overall a good dining experience.

Merricks never fails to impress. Food was delicious with interesting, attractive and unfussy presentation. Wines by the glass offer broad choice and excellent quality. A great lunch. So good that I look forward to dinner sometime!

Impeccable service to our book club lunch ! The kingfish ceviche and the Burrata were superb, accompanied by the Elgin Pinot Noir, a befitting way to slide into Lockdown number five!

These guys are getting better each time we go. Tuesday lunch, bad weather and still busy but not crowded or noisy. The service was fast and unobtrusive, the food was sublime. I want to go many more times!!

Service was noon intrusive but efficient, trialing was excellent and my meal delicious. Been twice in one week and had 12 hour beef cheek both times. It was so moist and tasty and parsley salad went really well with it. The parsnip mash was also a great a compliment.

We ordered individual entree’s but in hindsight we could have shared the entrees between us . This is not a criticism more a thought after we could have easily shared.

The most gorgeous place on the Peninsula! If the vibe of a place matters to you and you like good wine and an open fire, head to Merricks General for breaky, lunch or just a glass of sparkling mid holiday arvo. You’ll be glad you did!

It is the most perfect spot for a lunch - beautiful food, divine staff, incredible setting - it’s like dining at home in your own county homestead. I love it - which is why I go back almost weekly now. Love love.

Great farm style, cosy atmosphere restaurant. We had lunch and the quality of the food was outstanding. Flavours were complex and very well delivered.
The only downside for me is the fast food style fries. I was expecting chunky farm style potato fries. But I reckon this is a matter of taste.

A fabulous experience for four of us. This is the second time I’ve made the trek to Merricks and they didn’t disappoint. Fabulous food, wine, staff and ambiance - and we were blessed with a table in front of the open fire.

Very busy lunchtime at Merricks GWS which meant it was pretty noisy. To start off, we had to hang around a bit too long but then the service improved considerably when our waitress arrived at our table. She made the whole experience a pleasure. The menu was diverse but limited - no steak offering for example but my wife gave the fish dish she had 10 out of 10 - she thought it was perfect.
The new head chef, who we were told hails from New Zealand, should be congratulated on the standard of food produced. We will definitely be going back.
