The Merrijig Kitchen is housed in the historic Merrijig Inn {1842), known as Victoria's oldest Inn. Situated across from the Port Fairy wharf, in the heart of gorgeous Port Fairy.
We are HIGH on atmosphere and write our menu daily, after Tanya chats with our fish monger, veggie growers, local butcher and any of our wonderful local gardeners who may pop in with their backgarden produce.
We spend a lot of time on our drinks program, offering our local Henty wine region producers, smattered between regional and international producers adhering to organic and biodynamic practises.
We love a bespoke cocktail, which we make inspired by our garden and of course, offer local artisan beer on tap.
Pop in, we'd love to see you whilst you are enjoying Port Fairy!

    Another amazing Merrijig experience, from the warm and cosy environment, excellent and knowledgeable service and a menu that reflected seasonal local produce skilfully prepared by a creative chef.

    Merrijig Kitchen was a warm inviting and cosy way to experience our first evening meal in Port Fairy. The staff were friendly and attentive the food selection although a small menu was interesting and enjoyable. Highly recommended

    With only one night for a special meal in Pt Fairy we wanted it to be special and we were not disappointed. We were welcomed inside and seated immediately and the gastronomy started. The food was outstanding & service was great. There was one minor slip up when a side dish didn't arrive with the main but that was quickly rectified. It was a memorable evening and we will be sure to return when next in town.

    A quaint and gorgeously unspoilt building Food was ‘good to very good’ … perhaps a little greater breadth in menu (6-8 mains is, permutationally, significantly better than an offering of 4-5) Drinks / Wine list very good +
