Description: Discover a new world as you gaze down on The Glass House, hovering like a coloured jewel beside the vineyard, cantilevered over the waterlily-fringed lake. This unique building is open daily year round, where you can choose to taste our range of wines, enjoy a glass as you relax on our generous decks or simply purchase bottles to take home. We're excited to offer you our fresh new menu, showcasing local produce and seasonal ingredients. Do come and experience dishes that we love and flavours we are passionate about. Download the Menu> This is truly a building for all seasons as you watch the birdlife on the lake on a summer's afternoon, or feel the fury of winter as the rain lashes the lake and sends the overflow beneath you in a veritable waterfall. Metres away are the vines, with the building's transparency letting you possibly observe the pruning process, leaf-plucking, fruit thinning, and if the time is right, the harvest itself!

My friends and I dined for lunch to celebrate a birthday and were really impressed with the extra effort taken by our Server to find an option that was GF, DF and contained no Garlic. A bespoke chicken salad was produced and all the while the server was speedy, efficient and friendly. Thank you so much!

I have dined here a couple of times; once with friends in the summer outside and again with family inside. Both are lovely but you can't beat outside under the vines in the summer. Our most recent visit was inside during winter which is still very nice.

Varied menu and good prices. Limited wine selection

Hands down one of the best places we have dined at. Staff were all friendly and extremely helpful, food was all to die for and the wine some of the best we have sampled.

A warm retreat on a chilly winters day. Efficient under floor heating ensures a lovely ambient atmosphere which was matched by the warmth of our welcome. This visit was for my Mum's 89th Birthday and all 4 generations present enjoyed the creative menu featuring fresh local produce. The great grandchildren 10 & 12 had fun colouring from a choice of interesting pictures before ordering from the children's menu. A favourite restaurant for a special occasion.

We turned up on a sunny Friday and were seated straight away. Lots of seats, but doesn’t sound like this would be the case on the weekends. We ordered the wine tastings and the waitress talked to us about the wines. Plus there’s info in the book.
We all ordered the lamb burgers! So did the table beside us. They were good!
We then wandered the art trail and got coffee afterwards.
Service was great.
We also purchased wines too! And olive oil!
Great presents.
