We stopped in for a Saturday night dinner after a busy day. Without a booking we were seated quickly and very attentively served while in. Food was of a great quality and drinks fulfilled quickly

What a treat to find such a sheik restaurant and bar in the Yarra Valley. John welcomed us like locals (well we are) and produced beautiful tasty tapas and wine equal to anything in Brunswick! Love it and can’t recommend it enough.

Description
Herd Bar & Grill incorporates an urban meets rural interior offering something unique and completely new to the Yarra Valley. This subterranean bunker wouldn’t be out of place in the city and has been likened to any groovy bar in New York City. Chef Trevor's food style is modern Australian influenced by his love for Middle Eastern flavours and encourages shared plate grazing or dining. Boasting a late licence, Herd Bar caters and is welcoming to all, offering sensational service, ambience in an unpretentious relaxed space, a must destination whist meaning the glorious Yarra Valley.
