Rustic gourmet treats and handmade food are the stars at this country eatery.

If you like wholesome, hearty food where the sophistication lies in the delicate flavouring and the fact that absolutely everything is made on site and by hand, then you'll love Bread & Wine where Neil and Tina Jewell make magic with their homemade cured meats (him) and just baked gourmet breads (her).

Food and drink

Expect charcuterie in a myriad forms, homemade pickles and preserves, ribsticking slow cooked casseroles and cassoulets and lots of crusty breads to choose from. Estate wines and bubbly complete the rural picture.

Recommended dishes

It'd be a sin not to try Neil's outstanding charcuterie, in fact I'd say don't bother coming if you don't. Self trained, his offerings range from homemade chorizo to truffle studded salami and 18 month old cured hams. UK born Neil likes old school soul food - I love his Scotch eggs and say confession before tucking into his decadent pork belly and cassoulet mains, and the chicken liver parfait (available to take away from the deli) is really, really good. Tina's breads are a joy - no preservatives and made the old fashioned way. Though this is a carnivore's delight I'm always impressed with the inspired seasonal offerings for non-meat eaters.

Ambience

A relax atmosphere pervades - belying the serious attention to quality behind the scenes. This is a good place to bring kids who can wander in the garden and among the vines.

Friendly, enthused and efficient.
