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.

Great place for a delicious and leisurely lunch.
The degustation style menu was decidedly scrummy.
The whole time spent there was very pleasant

My partner finished dry July and we decided to celebrate with "the Ultimate Margan Experience". We arrived early which was no issue, served bubbles on arrival. Next we ventured with Jess to complete a vineyard tour. Her knowledge, friendly personality and enthusiasm for the industry was refreshing and she gave us a great tour through the garden, barrell hall and winery facilities. The 5 course meal that followed was awesome and all staff were professional and knowledgeable.

Following lunch we had a wine tasting to try the rest of the wines that we hadn't already tried. The staff member who served us was super friendly and gave great background to all the wines.

Overall everything was impressive, if you do one thing in Broke do this!!

What a wonderful ‘ultimate’ experience we had on Sunday. The Margan vision, the genuinely sustainable action, the quality of food and wine, and the staff were all brilliant. Highly recommend. Five stars!

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.
