I’m after a recommendation of a good moderately priced, kid friendly winery to take the extended family to for Saturday lunch for my birthday. I’d like somewhere we can eat outside, the kids can run around, the menu not be too fancy, but good quality food and overall relaxed fun atmosphere – not asking for much I know!
Stonier for a picnic (they only do cheese platters, so youd have to bring your own picnic) they have an outdoor playground and heaps of room for kids to play footy or run around. TGallant is great too, but no areas as such for the kids to run free. – Andy Q
By far Tucks Ridge! Beautiful stunning scenery, a good menu but not “fancy”, kid friendly with lots of open spaces! If you look up the suggestions on most vineyard websites will be listed menus to help make your decision. – Alicen H
Pier 10 is lovely and relaxed. – Sharelle B
Main Ridge in Red Hill. – Scott M
Apparently the Green Olive in Main Ridge. Their website mentions kid friendly, and the have a huge trampoline. Check out their website. I haven’t been there yet, but it was recommended to me.
Montalto pizzeria (outside) is great for moderately priced food (pizza, chick wings, other easy yummy stuff), great wine and the kids have plenty of room to play on the grounds. My fav!
The Heritage is great for kids, large area to run around, and food priced ok, but I don’t really rate the food.
Box Stallion is great for kids, I can’t remember price or menu but it’s nice. Sit in or out.
T’gallant isn’t great for kids, no real area to play, but nice pizza and price. Hope this helps a bit? – Rebecca G
Green Olive is a beautiful setting with space and a trampoline, but the menu isn’t great and nothing for kids on it.
Tucks Ridge always works. Leanne T
Stillwater at Crittenden in Dromana. – Vanessa W
Stillwater is great, they have games for the kids and a great kids menu, plus the food is amazing. – Marni S
Montalto is great, lots of out door seating, great pizza! – Anne M
Dromana Estate is super relaxed, food is lovely (as is the wine … very important!) The grass is perfect for kids to run a muck on. – Sophie P
Definitely Pier 10! It has everything you have asked for! – Andrea W

I just recently went to the Green Olive for my birthday lunch. Kids had so much fun in the sprinklers, running around and the under ground trampoline. And then a group of horses and their riders stopped by, and my girls loved it. The lamb backstrap is yum as well as the sausages. More tapas type meals, but really delish. – Nicki K
We always go to Montalto with our group of friends and there is always a lots of children. Fabulous pizzas and loads of grass for the kids to run around. Couldn’t love this place more massive thumbs up! – Carlee P
Definitely the Heritage in Balnarring. It is a fantastic place. Also has live music on Sunday afternoons from 3-6pm. Great for adults to have a few drinks and kids can run and play then settle down for dinner. – Cara L
Tucks Ridge – outstanding. – Nicol T
Dromana Estate food is great, has an open area for kids to play in and wines are fabulous. – Lynette J
Hickinbotham was great. We went there for my sister’s birthday with kids. Great food, reasonably priced, great outside area. Horses that the kids can feed. I think it was a Sunday arvo and they had a band. We ended up getting up and doing the “hokey pokey” with the kids that they had requested themselves! Great staff too. – Annette F

Try Montalto – the pizza and wine is great. – Jonathan W
We’ve been to Pier 10 a few times with kids & it has always been fun & relaxed. – The Enchanted Child
I have to say we didn’t like Tucks Ridges, took our son the other week. The view is beautiful and the staff were nice but we didn’t enjoy the food. Hope you find a nice place to go. – Belinda M
Hickinbotthom – animals to feed, outdoor area, cubby house, live music and casual atmosphere. – Rachel J
Sam just had her 40th at the Heritage because it catered for the kids. They took a footy, cricket gear and other outdoor activities. There is a huge grass area where the kids can play. – Niki R
