5) Tiller Dining - George Cooper, is a young British chef who now calls Margaret River home. With Tiller Dining he brings the restaurant to you; sourcing the best of the regions ingredients and putting his own unique spin on a dining experience. Trained at some the UK’s best Michelin restaurants, he’s a regular collaborator with the regions wineries and events like the annual Gourmet Escape.

6) Pies & Ale - COMING SOON! Brought to you by the legends behind Gracies General Store, also a perennial favourite of ours. Pies & Ale, as the name suggests, well it says it all. It’s an excellent food and beverage combination, and in one of the most beautiful parts of the region. An added bonus is that it’s right next door to the Boranup Gallery for some additional cultural activities.

7) Hooked Up Fish and Chips - Food Truck, Surfer’s Point Prevelly - Cooking up easily the best fish and chips in the region, these guys locate themselves at the Surfer’s Point car park from about 4pm. We recommend you check their website or Facebook page to confirm though as it can be weather dependent. Bring the family and a picnic blanket and come to Surfers Point to join the fun.

8) Glenarty Road - Named the Best Regional Restaurant in 2021 by the WA Good Food Guide, this rustic restaurant sits amongst their working farm, which has been home to the family for five generations. This patch of land has evolved from original bush to rich fertile soils, a sheep farm, a vineyard and a vegetable garden. Collectively this is distilled into a creative expression of crafted wines, seasonal produce, grass-fed meats, house-made charcuterie and local goods in a farm to table style feast and real farm experience.
