The Zin House
This was easily our favourite place in Mudgee to eat as it truly showcases what Mudgee is all about: Great food, great wine, great hospitality. Housed in a modern farm house, The Zin House overlooks Lowe Wines. Here, Kim specialises in a 5 course weekend long lunch valued at $55 per person plus the option to add The Zin House Wine Flight for an extra $35 per person. Zin House is an experience in itself and one that should not be missed in Mudgee.
Nestled on the bank of a beautiful little creek, Pipeclay Pumphouse is a trendy restaurant setting a new culinary experience for the diners of the Mudgee region. A must include during your visit to Mudgee. Perfect for breakfast, lunch, dinner and functions.
The Restaurant at Blue Wren
The real cherry on the cake for us whilst staying at Blue Wren was our dinners at The Restaurant. Sitting on the Chef’s Table we had the pleasure of being able to watch owner and chef Kip in action, all the while, drinking copious amounts of wine and chatting all things Mudgee. It was delightful, as is Kip. By far my favourite dish of the Autumn menu was their crispy skin salmon, Himalayan salt rock seared scallop, smoked potato puree, broad beans, asparagus, corn dust, caviar. Beautiful in every sense of the word.
Roth’s Wine Bar
One of Mudgee’s oldest bars, Roth’s Wine Bar is a fun and welcoming establishment with a buzzing atmosphere and delicious food.

Our first stop on our Mudgee Adventure was this little gem. Smack bang right in the middle of Market St, this cute and comfortable little local is popular for pumping out some tasty French inspired dishes.
29 Nine 99 in Rylstone
Our final stop on our little weekend adventure took us to a late lunch in Rylstone, a scenic 40 minutes drive from Mudgee. Our destination was 29 Nine 99, a quaint little eatery known for their fantastic al fresco style home made yum cha dumplings and Chinese tea.
