We were so excited to host our nearest and dearest friends at The Refectory Werribee Park official launch. We are thrilled to open our new venue following an extensive renovation and can’t wait to host some beautiful weddings and events in this new space.

Our menu for the day was a gorgeous grazing menu, best enjoyed over a long lazy lunch and designed to share:

Smoked ocean trout, pumpernickel, salmon roe, crab mousse, salsa verde

Slow cooked oregano and garlic lamb shoulder, white bean puree, crispy vine leaves, rosemary jus

Broccoli, freekeh, toasted almonds, lemon vinaigrette

Baby beets, fennel, goat’s cheese, horseradish cream

Roasted cauliflower florets, labne, dried cranberries, pepitas

Duck fat roasted potatoes, sea salt, confit garlic and fresh herbs


Blood orange curd meringue tart

Tonka, rum and raisin crème brulee

Chocolate pots, salted caramel, double cream

Strawberries and cream, vanilla shortbread
