Allan Grammar is a Small Wine Bar situated In Woodriff Street Laneway in the heart of Penrith. A love child of ours, two locals with the vision to change the way we eat and drink in Penrith.

We centred our business around a small wine list which focuses on smaller producers, and their efforts to create beautifully crafted wines for the community around them and that abroad.
In this same manner, we aim to bring forward a venue for the area which has been just as beautifully crafted.

Above all we wish to present to Penrith our love for its wild westie ways. Our space desires to be nowhere else except here among its locals.
We hope you’ll join us for an after work drink, meals with friends, a late night snack or Vinos with the girls.

This ones all yours Penrith, We hope you love it. God knows we love you x

Impressive drinks menu with a delicious food menu to match. It’s hard to not try everything. The lamb belly sambo and steak were our top picks. We will definitely be back.

My only negative was that the tables are quite small for a couple we did have to play Tetris a number of times to get things to fit on our table and we couldn’t both sit comfortably at a corner table.

This wine bar is beautiful! All the food was amazing except the steak, which was grisly and had a lot of fat, this was disappointing.

Q: When is a restaurant not a restaurant?
A: When it's a bar!
If you or any of your party are under 18 years you cannot enter here - ergo it is NOT a restaurant, but a bar.
Q: Well why the F*CK can you book this "restaurant" through "opentable" then??????????
Dining is clearly not the target market - who knows what is?
Perhaps this is why it will remain empty.

The staff at Allan Grammar are rightly proud of the food and wine that they serve and their elegant premises. They clearly know their stuff and are genuinely keen for you to get pleasure from your visit.

Each time I visit Allan Grammar the food is on point, service is impeccable, with good ambiance. The quality, freshness and variety of food is the best in Penrith. The homemade pastas are so good!

Where can you find amazing food, decor and wine without having to travel to the city? Allan Grammar. Can't wait to get back. Dinner this time and definitely more wines! Perfectly balanced cocktails, wine and food. Amazing to have so close to home.

The food was expensive for what it was. My husbands steak was chewy and I thought 3 scallops for $26 was pricey.
The wine list was full of great wines however the prices were inflated and we would have bought 2 bottles for around $40-$45 rather than pay nearly $70 for one.
The service was absolutely outstanding, and probably one of the best waiters we’ve ever had.

Overall had a great experience, could not ask for better service and the food was amazing. The amostophere was relaxing and cozy. They need to change the music as we heard the same songs playing all night.

My first visit. Wasn’t sure what to expect. Decor quite understated but plush. We started with a cheese plate and bottle of wine. Both excellent. Followed with a share plate of Tasmanian scallops which were gorgeous... but pricey for only three. Four would have given us two each... it was a ‘share plate’.
Staff were helpful and able to speak to the menu and wine selection. Will go again now I know ‘how it works ‘.

My wife and I had a lovely experience at Allan Grammar for our wedding anniversary. The food was exceptional and the service was outstanding. With this having been our first time, we were very grateful to have our waitress really host us for the evening and make sure we understood the menu and that we were comfortable. We did have an early reservation at 6:00pm so the restaurant was not very busy at the time, so with this in mind we thought, whilst we liked the style of music being played, the volume was slightly high. Otherwise, we would definitely recommend Allan Grammar and look at returning in the future.

You must try the "feed me" option on the menu. Make sure you get there early and have a drink at the bar, it makes an impression from the moment you walk in.

Had a birthday dinner with some girlfriends and we absolutely loved it. Convenient location for locals meaning we don't have to travel into the city. Nice decor, cool atmosphere. Our waiter was very informative and gave us great recommendations, he was also entertainment and very charismatic. Price point was also great considering the amount of food we received - we opted for the feed me option. They were also able to cater for one of my friend's who is a vegetarian and she enjoyed her meal. I would definitely return to Allan Grammar and recommend to my friends and family.

Amazing experience at a hidden gem in Penrith. Was taken away with the amazing service and the food that kept coming from the kitchen.
Could not recommend this place enough! Will definitely be back to try out their new season menu. Thanks for such a great experience, especially for a day so special; Mother’s Day.

Didn’t cater for those not wanting a main meal. Sharing platters with cold meats/cheese and antipasto would be a much preferred option than a overpriced bread roll and one bite lamb rib. Way too pricey for a Wine Bar. Shame really because it could be so nice otherwise. Decor was lovely. Service was great. Menu needs to be reviewed.

Great food but very small portions. What was recommended probably wasn't enough for us. We weren't able to get tea and coffee after our dinner which was unusual. Lovely ambience. Good service.

Congrats - what a great night - service was spot on, food was fabulous- I seriously forgot I was in Penrith the decor .... beautiful... It felt like a swanky restaurant in Melbourne!
We Will definitely be back - my only issue was we were sitting at the middle table of the 3 near the door and it felt like we were sitting with the people next to us - they were so close we could have shared our meal.
