“A Great Extended Lunch”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 27 April 2014

A gloriously sunny afternoon so we sat at a table in the shade of an old tree in the pretty garden.

Lunch was delicious and leisurely - I think we were there about 3 hours.

Lovely food, great ambiance, friendly service, highly recommended.

“Great lunch place.”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 4 April 2014

Stopped here for lunch while doing a wine tasting tour. Lovely place in an old house with mature gardens. The lunch was super especially the seafood chowder my husband ordered. We shared together and a wonderful blue cheese soufflé. Well done Grape Escape!

“Beautiful garden setting”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 15 January 2014

My partner and I came here for a coffee when we were waiting to check into our motel and then were unable to resist the delicious cabinet cakes as well. The girl serving must have been having a bad day as she was rather off hand and had no time to smile or respond when we admired the food on display.
We sat at a table in the garden and admired the amazing array of flowers, butterflies and birds flitting around, it is certainly a beautiful setting. Lovely place, would have made a difference if the waitrss was friendlier.

“Order the Lamb Salad!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 8 January 2014

I went to the Grape Escape for my Nana's birthday on the 7th of January with a group of family members. The staff were very friendly and helpful. We were unlucky with the weather but we all had a great time. Everyone loved their meals and we'll be back for sure!!
