A great place for lunch - good food and wine. You can taste some wines prior to lunch and also look at the art on display. The shop has lots of local produce on display and to buy.

Mornington Peninsula has an abundance of great scenery, wineries and restaurants. A restaurant needs to be very good to compete and Merricks does just that. They have kept the old country feel without overdoing it but provided a wonderfully warm open environment for a cold...More
