Mudgee is a such a thriving country town in the eating out options.
There’s also an amazing farmers market on every 3rd Saturday of the month and if you’re in need of a caterer then look no further than Mudgee Made (you’ll see the beautiful Mudgee Made team, Tanya & Lara, at the markets too – see our post on Mudgee Made here).
Here are some of our favourite eat & drink spots in the town:
I’ve been for dinner there twice and both times it was absolutely amazing. First time was a hot summers night so we sat out in the breezy courtyard and the second time was a chilly autumn night and we sat in the cosy & brilliantly decorated main room! Both perfect! Combine that with amazing food (think delicious share plates and scrumptious pizzas) & fantastic wine from the region and you are in for a sensational dinner!
Alby & Esters:
You’ll find Alby & Esters at the end of a quaint little alleyway off Market Street. It is beyond adorable and the service is impeccable. We went for breakfast/brunch and were treated to amazing coffee and seriously delicious food from a menu that is refreshingly different to the normal. On Friday & Saturday nights it also turns into a wine bar & from what we got during breakfast hours, we can only imagine how incredible it would be as a wine bar! Total must-visit spot!
Mudgee Brewing Co:
The perfect spot for a mid-afternoon drink spot. We’ve not actually ever eaten any food there but the menus sound really great! We have only ever gone for the beer tasting panels which is enough of a reason to go anyway! The beers are really amazing and the whole process made us feel like we were in Portland, Oregon & the whole Pacific North West of America (aka microbrewery hub of the world). Our favourite is the Mudgee Pale Ale!
Roths Wine Bar:
Great spot for an afternoon or post-dinner wine! We went after dinner at Elton’s and it was a fantastic combo. There is also live music on Thursday, Friday & Saturday nights which makes for a great atmosphere!
