Description: Our focus is on local produce, we know all the farmers directly; we focus on ethical and buying whole animals direct from the source. We employ a full time butcher who looks after all of our meat, including curing and ageing, for both our restaurant and our newly renovated pub (located in Creswick 15 mins from Daylesford). We have several kitchen gardens and grow a lot of our own produce. Our award-winning executive chef, Hugh Maxwell and his team create some of the most incredible contemporary dishes, sure to wow your senses. Our French restaurant manager and his talented team will ensure the best fine dining experience. We aim to be your ultimate dining experience, one that you cannot forget. There is a separate wine bar and courtyard for pre-dinner drinks and happy hour 4pm-6pm daily, half price oysters and cocktails.

I really liked the atmosphere. We went three times during stay on a daylesford. Once late for drinks and to listen to music, once for dinner and once for lunch. Each time the food was great, and wine list comprehensive. Lunch we shared a few tapas dishes, recommend the pork belly and scallops. Dinner a main courses, the chicken dish and seafood pasta. On busy weekends, recommend you book

We were up in Daylesford for the weekend and had dinner at this place on Fri night. It is nice and cosy with a warm environment and very friendly staff. Just be aware: you might be persuaded to cocktails without even knowing so...
Our meals were beautiful and the live music was exactly what it should be, not too loud, relaxing and they all had genuinely good voices.
So, yes I would suggest you give it a try :)

I was here with a group of friends and we were having a weekend away. We decided to have lunch at the Perfect Drop and were blown away by it. The atmosphere is great, the service impeccable and the food was exquisite. We didn't know what to expect and so overjoyed to find such a gem. Plans to book the private room in the evening for our get together next year and in the meantime will tell all and sundry what a great experience we had. Well done!

What a perfect Evening. We visited the Perfect Drop to celebrate our wedding Anniversary and had a lovely evening. We chose the share plates and were not disappointed each one spaced evenly and all were delicious. The staff were attentive & friendly. We found the host Christine just lovely. Would highly recommend and will certainly return.
