A lot of laughs!
But is it enough?
The Tf’s were in for a real treat.
But we could not help ourselves, once we caught a look of the menu and the famous specials board, had our hot chocolates, lemon lime and bitters and wine served in super quick time..
The Yea Peppercorn Hotel has been lovingly restored and been a gathering place for functions, dinners and get together for a few years now but the current team of owners Cindy and Grant and their excellent staff have put their unique stamp on this fine establishment.
The two story former pubs color scheme and furnishings should be a clear indication of the flavor of the menu and service. Meaning the attention to detail is wonderfully smooth and seamless.
From their website;
From the elegant and stylish interior and furnishings through to the easy to read menu, the knowledgeable staff, the over 150 wines on offer to the local produce hidden in one of the many nooks in the dining areas shows the dedication to enhancing a visitors experience in dining in Yea.
The price range of specials for mains was from $29 - $59.
So all tastes and budgets were catered for and the entrée was very tempting:
Seafood Tapas Plate To Share -
3 Moroccan Prawns
3 Scallops in the shell with white wine sauce and bacon
3 Oysters Mornay
But the group seemed to be equally divided between pork, beef and seafood, so between the ten of us with the final choices being:
Not one word was said when the meals arrived shortly after ordering and as we started to eat the conversation grew with some vigor.
After short time we were very disappointed when the meals were gone and after piping hot coffees there was neither room nor time for homemade desserts.
Next time the plan may be to have a small entrée and dessert!
Now we found out a few secrets on the way out…one of which was with their home grown Sav Blanc , the grapes are grown in a private vineyard just for the Peppercorns own label.
The Savvy Blanc and the McClaren Vale 2007 Shiraz was the popular lunch time accompanying wine for the girls.
As you pay on leaving you can’t help but to notice the 24 hour streaming flat screen TV above your head showcasing the action in the kitchen.
