We really enjoyed the day, thank you. Wine was good, food was good and music. Kids were a little noisy but they were well behaved just play noise.
Planning to come again!

We had a family catch up and needed somewhere with an outlook, good food and felt like an experience whilst being casual. St Leonard’s did all of that. The staff were friendly, my father in-law who uses a frame could get around, the food was great and the outlook fantastic. We will be back

The singing & live music was too loud, it ruined the atmosphere. The ambience would be much better if the back ground music was softer. The afternoon was very uncomfortable & we had to dine quickly & leave. My birthday lunch with my family was not enjoyable.

The experience was a little disappointing. Firstly, on arrival we did not go where to wait for service, Secondly when we went to collect the food, two of the four ordered dishes were not available for pickup (no record of the order at the kitchen) and thirdly, the steak (2 orders) were cold (we expected a hot or warm serving) and the fish pie was very runny (the potato thickened it up). Although the venue was fine and the ambience good, I doubt we will return.

A visit to Rutherglen to catch up with friends could not have been more enjoyable than sitting out on the verandah at St Leonards. Watching a beautiful bride succeed in her third attempt to get married due to covid helped to create such a happy atmosphere. We rated our food as the best meal any of us eaten in previous months and thanked the chef directly. I can't wait for my next visit to the district!!

I have to say that we were a little disappointed in the food and service. Menu was very limited and a little pricey for what we received. Wine was very nice though.

Went for a Sunday lunch as a friend recommended the place saying food was really good. She was right, it did not disappoint. I booked through Open Table and requested Standard dining as opposed to outside as it was a bit windy. When we arrived we were showed to a table outside anyway which was ok as it was a lovely setting.. perhaps better than inside. We were told we had to order inside which was ok but then informed it was pay as you order. We were given a buzzer and told we had to collect our food. But much to our surprise the lovely chef personally brought our meals to us. They were beautifully cooked and presented. The staff were actually lovely and very friendly. Overall we enjoyed but it is more casual than most wineries which is great for families. I believe your furry friends are welcome to. Will definitely return.

Beautiful setting, overlooking vineyard and river tributary.

The food was very tasty ... but ... interesting. Consistency was an issue. Four at our table ordered the same dish, and no two were alike. Mine was missing a chief component.

Fabulous food and service. it was 38 degrees and very windy but were able to have a table in the cafe away from the elements. On a better weather day you can eat outdoors under umbrellas with river views. Absolutely worth a visit.

We were given a voucher as a Christmas present and chose to come to St Leonards because the menu suited us better. We were warmly greeted by all the staff who assisted us in wine selection (something I know nothing about). We sat by the kitchen and had a lovely conversation with Jack the chef. The baba ganoush and lamb shoulder were excellent and just hit the mark. We enjoyed our experience.

Overall my experience was fantastic. So much that we are thinking of booking this as a venue for an upcoming wedding. It was a beautiful day and the food and music was amazing as was the beautiful grounds outside. The only thing that marred the day was that we had organised a table prior to the event and upon arrival found all tables has been allocated. I went back inside and asked if someone might be able to tell me which table was ours. We were told to go around and look on the tables and find ours. I stated that it was not my place to ask people to move from a table that had been reserved for us. The staff member responded that if it was in our name that that is what we should do and rudely dismissed me by turning his back on me and commencing talking to someone else. I thanked him for his help. Another beautiful staff member said that perhaps she could grab another table for us which was very accomodating. It is not nice that I have come away thinking what a prat that man was and i would hate to think he is so dismissive of other persons. He is definitely not the person you want people thinking about when they think of your great little winery

I highly recommend St Leonard's for a meal and entertainment. The ambience and service was amazing. The chef at the cafe was able to tweak a few meals to accommodate my gluten free diet and the meals were delicious. The seating overlooks the garden and the vineyards so you are able to sit back and enjoy a drink and partake in a variety of options from the cafe. We thoroughly enjoyed the music on New Years Day, top quality entertainment and people were able to get up and have a dance as well. All in all an enjoyable time at St Leonard's Winery and Cafe.

We made a last minuote booking for 16 people and when we arrived the table had been set up beautifully overlooking the vineyard. The girl who looked after us was very accommodating offering to make variations to the meals for the children. If required. Food and wine was also amazing! A wonderful afternoon had by all.
