“…if you only have one meal in the Hunter make it at Margan. Almost everything is grown onsite… wonderful, contemporary food. It’s 'wow' stuff.”– John Lethlean
Margan Restaurant is open lunch and dinner, Friday through to Sunday. We offer several dining options across the week.
Our signature Farm to Table menu showcases the freshest and best of our estate-grown produce, harvested daily.
For diners who have a little less time to spend with us, Margan Restaurant now offers an a la carte menu.
For alfresco dining with a casual wine bar feel, join us for our Summer pop-up Twilight Dining & Drinks menu. This is available in the stunning Margan Courtyard and Cellar Door, Friday and Saturday evenings across Summer.
For the Ultimate Margan Experience, join us on a interactive guided tour of the Margan Farm, including our sustainably farmed kitchen garden, vineyard and winery. Then relax in our hatted restaurant and enjoy our signature farm-to-table tasting menu.
Our Cellar Door is open 7 days per week with light platters featuring artisanal cheese, charcuterie, house-baked bread and garden produce.
Please note our menus are updated regularly to reflect the fresh weekly harvest from our kitchen garden and may have some changes to the samples provided.
Margan Wines was established in 1996 and Margan Restaurant opened its doors a decade later. As the pioneers of Agri-Dining in the Hunter Valley we are committed to our ‘estate grown, estate made’ ethos.
We craft our menus around the harvest from our one-hectare kitchen garden & orchard to maintain a hyper-local 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 menus.
We love to champion the quality produce of the region and collaborate with our neighbours and farm gate producers for olive oil, poultry, milk and sustainably reared animals. The Hunter Valley used to be an ancient seabed millions of years ago but now is an inland region. So for seafood we source from the coast of Newcastle and Port Stephens and only use sustainable species.
As farmers, we are committed to looking after the land and are certified with Sustainable Winegrowing Australia (first and only HV restaurant and winery). Our accreditation benchmarks us internationally to ISO 14000 for best practice in environmental stewardship. Additionally, we are headed towards carbon neutrality.
With delicious food, goes great wine so we offer a large selection of Margan wines (of course) along with some regional favourites and Australian and International heroes. We align with smaller estate and single vineyard producers and those who, like us also champion Sustainable Farming, Organic and Biodynamic Viticulture. We look forward to welcoming you soon.
We are proud of our achievements over the years and humbled by the accolades and feedback we have received. We sincerely thank each one of our Team Margan for their dedication and passion and every guest for their patronage.
Andrew and Lisa
