The Village Belle is where patrons have the opportunity to reconsider everything they ever thought about the pub dining experience.
Mathew Macartney, the award-winning former Executive of Chateau Yering and The Lake House, Daylesford, heads a dedicated kitchen brigade and is honing a contemporary, seasonal approach to classic bistro styled cuisine, balancing a fine line between intensive technique and classic pub fare.
The Garden Bar & Restaurant has been especially designed to be functional all year round. A contemporary concrete and glass structure, the striking space includes custom-made, steel framed windows and operable glazed walls that lift upward to maximise space. Even better, a retractable roof, as well as misters and fans, make it the perfect spot for soaking up the summer sun, while heaters mean Melbourne’s temperamental weather won’t stop the fun in the cooler months.
