Food is fine. Fish and chips were cooked well and tasted. Understaffed for number of customers. Only two waiters for the entire restaurant. Had to wait 15 minutes to pay the bill.

Description
The Distillery Woodfire Restaurant is a unique eatery established on the very grounds of the former Minchinbury Winery heritage estate (and Penfolds) in Minchinbury dating back to 1805. In 2013 this once abandoned site began transforming into a breathtaking restaurant maintaining much of the rustic charm of the precinct. Original fixtures were left untouched, including beams, stairs and the large beehive well which once supplied water to the Distillery on display at the entrance. Today, the Distillery presents as a spectacular museum showcasing the forgotten culinary history of Western Sydney, only 45 minutes from the CBD and approx 10 minutes from Parramatta. Together with head chef, Cherag Baria, diners can experience the fresh contemporary menu, for lunch or dinner, while enjoying a delightful historical journey. The menu features a delicious modern take on traditional recipes. A range of herbs, vegetables and edible flowers are grown onsite guaranteeing freshness. Ingredients are sourced daily from local and respected farms and suppliers. The restaurant is fully licensed and diners can enjoy a selection of quality wines. The spacious establishment features a refined rustic indoor eatery and the covered retractable roof outdoor area caters for up to 98 seated guests. Patrons can even take a heritage walk and explore the grounds. Event planners are available and can assist with birthdays, christenings, corporate functions and all occasions. Come in and dine with us... experience the re-making of history.
