Merricks General Wine Store
All safe Covid operating procedures continue to be in place.
Numbers are very limited & for this reason there are a couple of changes to the way we do things.-
BREAKFAST service daily between 8.30-11am. We are not taking breakfast bookings for the time being (this will be reassessed in a few weeks).
LUNCH service daily between 12-3.30pm. We have two bookable lunch seating times, an early and a late.
Afternoon visits for a glass of wine, with perhaps some cheese, is always encouraged.
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.

Excellent lunch followed by a walk on the beach. Recommended!
Wonderful to have such a first rate venue on the peninsula. Thank you. Keep up the great work.
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!
An easy and enjoyable favorite . We will be back to indulge
Excellant food and wine and great staff cheerful and helpful.
Excellent as always! One of our favorite local restaurants…
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.
Service was excellent. Food overpriced and not enough choice.
Lived up to expectations, will definitely be back again soon.
We loved it, food was delicious A perfect winter day trip from Melbourne.
Lovely restaurant but very small serves for main meals
We had a lovely lunch combined wine tasting with great service and in beautiful surrounds. Highly recommend.
I’ve been to Merricks General Wine Store plenty of times and the food are always amazing. The staffs are very friendly.
Food, atmosphere and friendly service made for a wonderful lunch.
A great meal and fantastic setting - will be back again soon
Lovely staff great food great ladies lunch . We all had a lovely time
Really delicious food. Was in a group of 2 and got 2 starters, 2 sides and a main to share, was the perfect amount
Thank you for making our family lunch very special. Your service and food was spectacular, we will be back!
Have been here many times, it’s always great food and service and particularly fast given school holidays and very busy.
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.
Good experience. Good service, nice atmosphere, good food and good wine selection. Beer selection was a little underwhelming.
Kerry and her staff are welcoming and the food is delicious. Warm lovely unpretentious surroundings, all in all, a relaxing enjoyable experience
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.
Delicious food and coffee in a lovely setting with water views. Cozy fire for chilly days.
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.
This venue is very good. This was second time we had been and the place delivered. Our guests were also very impressed. Will come back again very soon!
Lovely venue with great decor both inside and out. Food was lovely but might have preferred more choice on menu. Service was excellent
Loved everything about it. Can not wait to go back.
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.
Very quick service staff are friendly and very efficient, food is fresh and delicious
Lovely time to have lunch on a week day when not so busy. The food was delicious and the service good.
Really good experience at Merricks General Store. Great food
Thank you! We had a lovely time at Merricks General Store with friends. Excellent food, wine and company. We will be back again soon.
A really enjoyable lunch - always a lovely ambiance, attentive service & delicious food & wine. Consistently reliable.
Eggs Benedict came out on muffin. No garnish at all. Presentation poor.
