This enchanting Swan Valley Restaurant is ideal for relaxed casual dining, corporate and social functions or weddings. Fabulous cuisine with a rural edge, The Abbey at Chesters is truly one of the Swan Valley's finest culinary masterpieces.
Steeped in local history, our inspiring restaurant was originally a fruit drying shed and later a functioning stable quarters for a local riding academy. The Marri columns sustaining the roof were originally set into clay, as was done in the valley during the early 1900's. All of our tables, cabinet works and feature walls are handcrafted by the original timbers. Even the characteristic stable doors have been lovingly restored.
Varieties include Cabernet Sauvignon, Semillon, Viognier and Chardonnay.
The cellar door is open for tasting a broad range of estate-grown Heafod Glen wines, showcasing what was a very successful year for the winery, with gold medals for the 2008 Viognier, 2008 Reserve Chardonnay and 2007 Cabernet Sauvignon. Open Wednesday & Thursday 10am - 4pm, Friday 10am - 9pm and Saturday & Sunday 8:30am - 5pm.
The estate also specialises in quality Belgian ales. Served in traditional glassware, visitors can indulge in a range from Chimay to Karmelier (perfectly accompanied by the kitchen's scrumptious Belgian waffles).
Open from Wednesday-Sunday for lunch and Friday for dinner.
