This weeks featured wine

Crazy by Nature Chardonnay

Medium-bodied, there are concentrated, up-front flavours of stonefruits expressed with good richness and without complication, with some nuances of butter and nuts emerging in the glass. Good acidity enhances the fruit-driven nature and there is a soft creaminess to the texture, providing a lively, fresh mouthfeel.

Kitchen Delight

If it’s been a while between visits, now might be the time to re-find the love. The Kipling’s Team have a special lunch promo, $35.00 for a 3 course lunch (Mondays to Thursdays), which takes in such classics as our Herb crumbed Barramundi fillet with pumpkin puree and broccolini .

(You must advise staff that you wish to have our 3 course lunch special, at time of booking or prior to dining.)
