Margan Restaurant is based in the beautiful Broke Fordwich wine sub-region of the Hunter Valley and offers guests a sophisticated dining experience in a charming rural setting.
It is part of the Margan Wines establishment which includes 100 hectares of vineyards, a state of the art winery and stunning rammed earth cellar door. Margan is an award winning dining destination in its own right and provides customers with a unique and complete food and wine experience, set in a tranquil rural setting.
The Restaurant’s food style is inspired by the seasons. The one acre Kitchen Garden and orchard produces up to 90% of vegetables and fruit for the seasonally inspired menus.
