“Appalling in every way!”
Review of Meelup Farmhouse

Appalling! We have just gotten back from brunch at Meelup Farmhouse and I am beyond disappointed. We came here based on the 'hype' that seems to be everywhere about this place only to be disappointed in every way
From food that was served cold, poorly cooked and drinks coming out half way through our meal.
Then to top it all off, after the slow service we were asked to please leave as our table was needed for the next group and can we pay cash as the EFTPOS was down! Unbelievable... at no point were we told there was a time limit on our table or that we had to pay cash, luckily a couple of our guests had enough to cover the bill as we had planned to pay by card and it was on our invitation that they came, to be asked to pay for the meal was an embarrassment for us
None of our party (there were 10 of us) will be recommending or returning to Meelup Farmhouse, premium prices for an appalling experience

Beautiful setting, staff very friendly and attentive. We sat out on the deck on a sunny day. Lots of people there, some having picnics on the lawn. Food was delicious and plentiful. We had duck curry, pistachio and pork terrine, chilli prawns with pasta and the calamari with pineapple and lime. Plenty of room for kids to run around and meet the cute bantam chickens and the resident brown Labrador dog. Very enjoyable. Thankyou

The drive in, the location, the look all fantastic. Food was just average, pork share plate was dry, coconut and lime did nothing to enhance the dish .

As soon as we arrived, all the staff were extremely friendly and accommodating. We started off with the pornstar martini and bloody mary for drinks; they were extremely tasty and worth the price. For 2 people, we ordered the scallops, the salmon and the sweet potato flatbread with vegetables. All the food arrived very quickly and tasted amazing. We had Kylie assigned to our table, and she had the best service we have ever seen. She was attentive and informative, giving us recommendations on what to order when we were stuck on the menu. She also took the time to ask us personal questions to make us feel welcome and well taken care of. She was honestly the highlight of our visit! THANK YOU KYLIE!!

Went for lunch on an incredibly busy weekend for the region. Booked well in advance. Setting was nice, cute chickens roamed outside. Being very open flies might be a problem at certain times of the year. Started with a share plate of squid. The squid itself was a disappointment, with the oil too dominant. The duck curry was a very good, well balanced dish and the prawn pasta dish was good without being superb. Servings were on the smaller size. The wine list was dominated by the local winery nearby and overall had a number of reasonably priced wines that offered good value for money. If you were the sort of person who prefers the wine to the food you may be disappointed. The highlight of the meal was the coffee - best we have had in some time. Service was good coping with a very busy day. Prices were reasonable in a region where I find a lot off the food overpriced for the quality.
