Cooking only the freshest local regional produce and taking advantage of the seasons, The Wineglass Bar & Grill was conveniently located in our lovely accommodation in the Cobb & Co Court Boutique Hotel. One of the oldest eating establishments in Mudgee, they proudly cater for breakfast, lunch and dinner with a mixture of casual and fine dining food.
Light, fluffy and steaming hot, these pancakes were the perfect breaky after a long night of wine ‘tasting’. The honeycomb butter was sweet and creamy, and made even better by drowning it in rich maple syrup.
A solid bacon and eggs breakfast. Simple yes, but when everything is done right it’s all you really need. The eggs were velvety and smooth with creamy folds and a buttery taste, whilst the bacon was the perfect balance of crispy and meaty. Throw it all on a slice of warm sourdough toast and a hearty breakfast you have.
Veal Osso Buco with Soft Polenta and Olive Gremolata $18.95
Being so close to the restaurant we also had the pleasure of eating dinner here as well. I really loved this osso buco entrée. Usually only having it in a red sauce, I was thrilled by the delicious white wine based broth, which was herby, zesty and pungent. The meat was mosit and full of flavour, falling off the bone effortlessly. The soft polenta underneath did a great job at absorbing all those flavours from the meat and broth making this one hell of a starter.
Duck Breast with Galzed Cherries, Gingerbread and Baby Turnips $39.95
The duck was beautifully cooked to a perfect pink, keeping the meat tender and juicy. While the crisp golden brown skin gave a lovely crunch. I loved the little bursts of sweetness from the cherries which cut the richness of the fatty duck.
Slow Baked Pork Belly with Balsamic Glazed Kipfler Potatoes, Peas and Jus $34.95
The Pork dished in Mudgee were really on point throughout our whole visit. This one was absolutly moreish covered in a sweet relish that complimented the savoury meat perfectly. The mushy peas added a nice colour and flavour to the dish, giving it the feel of a family roast.
Quince Cake with Maple Syrup, Pistachio and Almond Biscotti & Vanilla Bean Icecream $13.95
My favourite dish at Wine Glass was this delectable little cake. Warm and moist and soaked in sweet maple syrup, I really loved the large soft chunks of quince. The biscotti added a nice change of texture, whilst the icecream cut through the sweetness of it all.
If you’re in Mudgee, it would be a shame to skip out on this great restaurant. The food, service and atmosphere all exceeded our expectations.
