The Margaret River Region is spoilt for choice when it comes to lunchtime fare.

Best enjoyed with friends and family, we have handpicked the top places to enjoy lunch while visiting with a group. Just remember to check each venue’s opening hours and ensure you book ahead.

Swings and Roundabouts Cellar Door
At Swings & Roundabouts there is plenty of room for groups of all sizes.

Swings & Roundabouts

Along the scenic Caves Road and just out of Yallingup is Swings & Roundabouts winery. The spacious cellar door leads out to a huge lawn, where you will find plenty of shaded tables, two nature playgrounds and an ice-cream kiosk, all set to a backdrop of an undulating vineyard and lake. Live music is hosted every Sunday year-round, and in summer a pop-up Kombi Corner bar on the lawn will serve beer from Busselton’s Rocky Ridge on tap.

We recommend sampling Swings & Roundabouts’ wine range at the cellar door before ordering an antipasto board and mouth-watering woodfired pizzas to share. Dogs are warmly welcomed.

Wise Wine
Wise Wine pairs their gin, wine and food with a side of stunning ocean views.

Wise Wine

After a winery lunch with an ocean view?

Wise Wine in Eagle Bay is perched on a hill overlooking the Meelup Regional Park and turquoise waters of Geographe Bay, the only winery in the region with ocean vistas.

Wise Wine produces gin as well as wine, utilising their own grapes for the spirit base. Visit the Tasting Room for a relaxed, seated tasting and marvel at the shiraz gin, mandarin gin, pisco or award-winning pinot grigio (bookings essential for groups of six or more).

Colonial Plates with Mates
Enjoy a hearty meal and craft beer at CBCo Brewing while the kids roam the large playground.

CBCo Brewing

CBCo Brewing is a large brewery in the heart of the Margaret River Region and ticks all the boxes when looking for a group lunch affair, especially with kids and dogs in tow. It is home to a large playground and golf driving range, keeping the kids entertained for hours while you enjoy craft beers and live music.

Clancy's fish pub
Clancy's Fish Pub is conveniently close to both Dunsborough and Yallingup.

Clancy's Fish Pub

Clancy’s Fish Pub, just out of Dunsborough’s town centre, is a great option if you have an appetite for fresh seafood platters, chilli mussels or zesty fish tacos. If you like spicy dishes, try their popular ‘fried mice’ entrée – deep-fried jalapenos stuffed with capsicum cream cheese.

At the rear of the venue is a grassed area for the kids to run wild and shaded outdoor tables suitable for well-behaved pooches. Visit on a Sunday afternoon to enjoy free live music, and check upcoming gigs and concerts on their website.

blue manna
For groups that love seafood, you can't go past Blue Manna Bistro.

Blue Manna Bistro

For seafood-loving groups who want to explore the very best of Dunsborough’s night-time food scene, look no further than Blue Manna Bistro. With its surrounding coastline being the great Indian Ocean and the calmer waters of Geographe Bay, Blue Manna was always primed to become a central hub of maritime cuisine.  They strive to serve all their seafood from local and sustainable sources and the quality ingredients wash down well with a glass of wine. Perfect booking for a group birthday celebration that deserves good food.

Wild Hop Brewing Co Pub Lunch
Visit Wild Hop Brewing Co. for an ever-changing menu inspired by a wood rotisserie oven.

Wild Hop Brewing Co

Set in the Yallingup hills is the family and dog friendly Wild Hop Brewing Company. Easily catering for groups up to 20, their menu is ‘family style’ and ideal for groups to try a mixture of dishes.

Unlike nearby breweries, you won’t find pizzas or burgers on their menu. Instead, they offer an ever-changing menu inspired by a wood rotisserie oven. A whole rotisserie chicken (brined for 48 hours and slow roasted over coals – must be booked ahead) is a menu staple, paired with fresh seasonal salads, roasted potatoes and condiments. Wild Hop’s beer range is batch brewed, so like the food menu, the tap list is always changing. The deck area is on one level, making it accessible for prams and wheelchairs.

There's plenty of space to stretch out at Shelter Brewing Co.

Shelter Brewing Co

By the calm waters of Geographe Bay and a stone’s throw from the iconic Busselton Jetty is Shelter Brewing Co. The massive family, dog, and wheelchair friendly venue dishes up woodfired pizzas from their Italian pizza oven (think prawn with nduja or pumpkin with feta), burgers and large share plates of whole fish, beef brisket and pork knuckle. Sip on a spritz, a local wine or a cold beer after a dip at the foreshore, or come later in the afternoon to see the sunset over the iconic Busselton Jetty and sparkling azure waters of Geographe bay.

Little mates will love it too with Shelter’s playground that includes a wooden caravan they can climb on, plus there’s a massive park right outside and the Busselton pirate ship playground is in direct sight from the beer garden.
Augusta Hotel
Generous pub-portions will leave your group content at the Augusta Hotel.

Augusta Hotel

At the southern tip of the region is the Augusta Hotel, set on the banks of the Hardy Inlet in the quaint town of Augusta. The outdoor tables and grassed area look out towards the meeting point of the Blackwood River and Southern Ocean, and inside the hotel are pool tables and regular live music gigs.

The menu has classic pub favourites, such as chicken parmigiana, fish and chips and steak sandwiches, paired with a list of local wines and beers. Dog and kid friendly, it’s a relaxed spot to fuel up after a morning in the water or after a visit to Cape Leeuwin Lighthouse.

Enjoy live music every Saturday in September at Aravina Estate
Picture-perfect views and summer live music is sure to go down well with local seafood and wine at Aravina Estrate.

Aravina Estate

Aravina Estate in Yallingup offers a wining and dining experience for everyone, with a cellar door, a fine dining à la carte restaurant, a casual pizza bar and a new craft beer taphouse.

The property is picture-perfect, with a lush lawn, towering trees and views over the lake and vineyard. The restaurant serves the finest local seafood, meats and cheeses of the region in their restaurant, but for a more casual lunchtime option, order pizzas from the Riviera Pizza Bar and sip on an Aperol spritz or Pimms in the sunshine. Live music is often hosted on the lawn during summer.

Black Brewing co
Pick a spot at one of Black Brewing Co's many corners and order a feast with a tasting experience.

Black Brewing / Dune Distilling

Black Brewing Co and Dune Distilling Co offers an ideal location for a relaxed feast with friends and family. With a brewery, distillery and 500 seated restaurant and beer garden all in the one location, there’s sure to be something to suit everyone’s tastes and wishes.

Or while you’re at it, why not book in for an exclusive hosted Gin (and Beer) Tasting and Cocktail Making experience with lunch in the Tasting Room, or gather in the restaurant for a spread of shared dishes and popular beer and gin paddles. Top it off with a bit of live music every weekend, and you’ve got your lunch (and afternoon!) sorted.

Stop in at Cowaramup Brewing Co for homemade pizza or a Tacos Al Pastor, easily washed down with CBC beer.

Cowaramup Brewing Co

The family-owned brewery Cowaramup Brewing Company (CBC) is one not to miss on your hunt for a tasty feed and beer while visiting and experiencing the region.

With windows opening into the working brewery on one side, and the wooden deck overlooking the beer garden and dam on the other, it’s never been so enjoyable to wash down a Tacos Al Pastor or homemade Cowaramup Special pizza from their new summer menu.

Spread out on the lawn for an abundance of space, gather in the restaurant closest to the beer-taps, or book in for a behind-the-scenes brewery tour to learn the nuances of the various beer flavours and characteristics. Did we mention the brewery tour finishes with a six-course degustation menu? It’s lunch we’re talking about, after all.

Lagoon Yallingup
Lagoon Yallingup is the only beachside venue capturing the idyllic Yallingup sunsets over the Indian Ocean.

Lagoon Yallingup

Nestled on the shores of Yallingup Beach, where the coastal bushland dunes meet the turquoise waters of the lagoon, you will find Lagoon Yallingup’s restaurant, kiosk and bar serving local seafood fare in a relaxed beachside setting.

Lagoon Yallingup dishes a 4-course shared Chef’s selected menu and long tables with seating upstairs for groups of up to 20. If you decide to linger into the afternoon while sipping on wine from Margaret River boutique wineries, you’re in the prime spot for views across the Indian Ocean and in the only beachside venue capturing the idyllic Yallingup sunsets.
