Description: The Stables at Stones is one of the region's most celebrated food and wine destinations. With its soaring red brick walls and rough-hewn timbers, throughout the late 1800s this historic building served as the stablehand quarters of the property before being transformed into an intimate fine dining space. Presenting a regional tasting menu on Friday, Saturday & Sunday nights and a Shared Plates lunch on Saturdays and Sundays, the menus are crafted weekly based on the seasonality and availability of local produce. The Stables offers an extensive wine list - carefully curated to showcase the Yarra Valley’s finest boutique producers alongside an exciting range of international selections. The Stables Stay & Dine experience is a must-do for visitors and includes a five course regional dinner at The Stables, luxury accommodation at The Farmhouse and complimentary breakfast at the Meletos Cafe.

Visited on a public holiday & was throughly delighted at both food offering and the price. Well worth the visit. Could perhaps do better on the wine sommelier service, but that’s perhaps a little critical. Small but ok wine list. Service was excellent. Would visit again, sooner rather than later.

I had lunch at The Barn today - Saturday- with family.
What a beautiful place to have lunch - amazing ambience and decor.

The selection from the two course menu ( entree +main or main + dessert) was varied and catered for all tastes, as did the drinks/wine list.

I chose the prawns in brik pastry with eggplant and the marinated lamb rump. Both were delicious. Each person at the table enjoyed their choices and many the flavoursome vegetarian options.

Thank you to the chefs and staff for making our special family lunch so enjoyable. I would especially like to thank our waitress, Amy, who was so professional, attentive and caring. Thanks Amy.

We will definitely be returning :)

We have just gone to the most beautiful wedding in the Yarra Valley at this location. Driving into the entrance with its beautiful tree lined driveway with rows and rows of vines on each side was just Devine. We loved the quaint chapel with chandelier and the bride and groom had a pianist/soul singer playing throughout the ceremony. After the service, guests walked a short walk to another location where they had a small jazz band playing and there was a huge grazing table with cheeses and small goods as well as delicious canapés and locally produced wine. The reception was another short walk and looked like a renovated barn with huge glass windows capturing magnificent views and an outside courtyard area with autumn vines. The food included share boards with amazing cuisine and a roving dessert bar. The service, wine, food and decor were just perfect for a perfect day. I loved this venue in Autumn as it captures the surrounding garden perfectly, the bride and groom also brought in a huge chandelier to hang from the roof of the main reception area. The Baker boys band was also incredible and would highly recommend them as well,
