Description: Margan Restaurant is now in its thirteenth year and Margan Wines celebrates 23 years as a leading Hunter Valley winery. As the pioneers of agri-dining in the Hunter Valley we are committed more than ever to our ‘estate grown, estate made’ ethos. We craft our menus around what we harvest from our one-acre kitchen garden and orchard to maintain a truly seasonal focus. In addition, we have our own olive trees, free range chickens, beehives and raise our own lambs, all of which is incorporated into our menu. As farmers, we are committed to looking after the land and as such are certified with Green Table Australia and Sustainable Winegrowing Australia for our environmental stewardship (first and only HV restaurant and winery). Integrity is important to us. Our accreditation benchmarks us internationally for best practice to ISO14000.

Clean, modern design. Fire adds comfort on cold days. Outdoor dining possible on warm days although sadly, given COVID, this was not available on a sunny 19 degree day. Most tables were spaced more than 2m apart. Although some waiters wore masks, including ours, the waiter pulled the mask down to talk to us - really why bother wearing one! Some waiters wore masks some of the time but took them off at times, even when talking at close quarters to customers.
I had lamb as a main course (lunch menu was limited to this or fish as mains). There was some gristle which had to be cut off and discarded from the small serving. I liked the taste. Entree and desserts were enjoyable (gnocchi/citrus based respectively - choice of entree but not dessert). Payment was by credit card in full at the time of booking.
Very good wines produced there and available for both dining and cellar door purchase.

We dined at Margan’s restaurant this past Friday for dinner and everything was exceptional.

The food as always was delicious and the server was a fountain knowledge about each dish served and every wine from the Sommelier’s Selection. I really enjoyed listening and talking to her about the wines.

I can’t wait for my next visit!

We recently spent five days in the Hunter Valley for a friend's big birthday (luckily NOT our usual destination, Sydney, on this occasion). On our last day we went for lunch at Margan and it was one of the highlights of our visit. The food was tremendous and knowing that most of it came from just outside the doors of the restaurant was a major plus. The well-priced matching wines were a great pleasure and both food and wine were placed in front of us by charming, helpful and knowledgeable staff. The view over the rows of vines to the mountains behind were a highly suitable backdrop and the rammed earth walls complemented the view. Don't forget to check out the large function space next to the restaurant, well worth the look.
