The Knee Deep Restaurant menu is based around quality artisanal produce that is chemical free, ethically harvested and abides by an organic approach. The food is contemporary Australian with Asian influences.

Choices include either a la carte or "Trust the Chef"™; which allows diners the opportunity to experience everything this Knee Deep Restaurant menu represents.

The Doctors Lounge is a less formal experience and the menu provides a range of share plate options

Our full range of Margaret River current release wines are available for tasting at cellar door and some of our back vintage wines are available by the bottle from the Doctor's Cellar when dining in the restaurant.
