The Old Grain Store The Old Grain Store has recently been through a major restoration that has transformed it into a striking dining venue. Detailed timber work, warm architectural features, and spacious, open areas make for a pleasurable dining experience, whether it's for brunch, a long lunch or a delicious dinner. There are also outdoor dining tables, which are popular for meeting up with friends. The head chef has applied his 15 years of industry experience to develop an impressive menu of delicious meal options, prepared in the engaging open kitchen, using as much seasonal local produce as possible. A wonderful casual option on offer is a grazing platter to share, best enjoyed with your favourite local beverage, selected from the extensive drinks menu – which includes beers, wine and cocktails. The Old Grain Store can also host and cater for events and gatherings of up to 120 people. If you are looking for a relaxed place for a meal or just a quiet drink with friends, this charming 100 year-old venue is sure to win your heart.
