If you are heading down South for the weekend and love fresh pasta and wine you should check out Barnyard 1978 just off Cave’s Road. There is plenty of delicious food and wine to tempt you in from the cold and rain!
You’ll enjoy beautiful food set in a great location that welcome and cater for families. They use the best fresh produce in town including eggs from local chooks and have their signature Barnyard honey and wine.
The decor is simple and chic inside with an open plan kitchen and viewing window giving it that home cooked and open feel. The staff are friendly, the menu is fresh with barnyard signature pasta and wine dishes!
There is a great display of all the produce that you can buy and after eating here you’ll be sure to buy something to take away it is so delicious!
The restaurant itself is relaxed and very family oriented with a great atmosphere serving fresh, simply and delicious food.
The choice of goods at The Barnyard 1978 shop look so delicious there is Barn fresh made pasta in four varieties spinach, beetroot, capsicum and squid ink. There is also preserved lemons, homemade tomato pasta sauce, fennel olives, eggplant kasundi and cucumber pickle. It was hard not to buy it all to take home….
There is a cellar door and wine testing of Barnyard signature wines and beers with fabulous views over looking the vineyard and the play area so there is something for everyone. We even managed coffee and a desert after our meal while our little one played outside!
There is a choice of seven main dishes plus specials all reasonably priced between $22 -$26. We tried the barn mac n cheese, the porcini truffle pappardelle reggiano and the kids spaghetti all absolutely delicious.
We couldn’t resist having dessert with our coffee and opted to try the lemon cheesecake, the peanut chocolate bar with salted caramel and they do a delicious vanilla kids ice cream.
This place is so family friendly it even ran pasta making workshops for kids during the school holidays focusing on making fresh food, with amazing local produce.
The play area and climbing frame is directly out back and there are tables and chairs on the veranda so you can eat out and watch the children. For those chili afternoons they have warm blankets for customers to use and outside heaters, or simply sit inside and enjoy the view.
Rope swing, slide a climbing wall, a rope climbing wall and a pirates wheel all in this compact climbing frame. A great choice of play equipment to keep the children happy and because the restaurant has large glass windows you can see outside while you finish your meal or have that coffee and cake!
Outside the back of the restaurant you can see the honeybee farm and vineyard plus there is plenty of space to let the kids have a run around after breakfast or lunch before you have to get back in the car!
There is plenty of parking outside the restaurant and there is baby change facilities and highchairs.
