An eating experience to remember at Mr Grubb


SINCE opening 18 months ago, the new cafe Mr Grubb @ Oakdene, has become a must-visit destination on The Bellarine.
The cafe is situated on the Oakdene Vineyards property in Grubb Road, and complements the vineyard setting, extensive gardens and eclectic art works and sculptures that make up the unique Oakdene experience.
Mr Grubb is known for its outside dining area – a large wooden deck, encompassed by magnificent silver birch trees, overlooking gardens and a children’s play area – and there is plenty to offer indoors as well.
With winter at our doorstep, Mr Grubb Cafe at Oakdene Vineyards, 255 Grubb Road, Wallington, is the perfect place to hang out with friends and family.
Bring the entire family and come in and experience the $15 Dinner Special Extravaganza Menu that Mr Grubb offers.
Due to popular demand, executive chef and owner Marty Chichester has decided to combine and extend the $15 Steak, Pizza and Pie nights from Wednesday to Saturday evenings.
This means patrons can enjoy a larger range of $15 dinner specials at Mr Grubb from Wednesday to Saturday, from 5.30pm.
There is also a limited a la carte menu offered, so you can still enjoy your favourite Mr Grubb dishes.
Mr Grubb offers a selection of two $15 steaks served with creamy mashed potato or their famous beer battered chips. Select from a 250g Rangers Valley Black Onyx 150 day grain-fed rump or a 250g Black Angus 150 day grain-fed porterhouse with either a mushroom and garlic or brandy and green peppercorn sauce.
Patrons can also choose from two $15 pies, served with beer battered chips or creamy mashed potato. The Mr Grubb Beef Steak and Shiraz Pie (Braised eye fillet steak in a rich Oakdene red wine gravy topped with puff pastry) or the Mr Grubb Fisherman’s Seafood Pie (barramundi, calamari, tiger prawns and local mussels braised in a creamy wine and herb sauce topped with puff pastry).
There are two $15 pizzas on offer too – a gourmet pumpkin, feta, pea, cashew and snow pea shoots pizza or the classic pepperoni, Spanish white anchovy and roast garlic pizza.
Gluten free pizzas are also available upon request.
Dinners at Mr Grubb kick off nice and early at 5.30pm from Wednesdays to Saturday evenings, so try to get in early as they only take bookings for large groups of 12 people or more.
Alternatively, you can still enjoy an exquisite fine dining experience at the Oakdene Vineyards Restaurant from 6.30pm.
Whether you enjoy casual dining or fine dining the staff at Oakdene would love to see you.
Opening Hours at Mr Grubb Cafe are: breakfast – weekends from 9.30am; lunch daily; and dinner from Wednesday to Saturday.
