We called in on spec to Merricks General Store for a quick lunch and were pleasantly to find it pretty full, even on a Monday. This is a favourite place and we have always enjoyed our meals here. Today, barramundi was Fish of the Day, and was cooked to perfection with a crispy skin over tender, juicy flesh which rested... More

Merricks General Store makes for a nice lunchtime stop on your drive in the Mornington Peninsula. There's the option of a complete lunch menu or a more casual sandwiches - cakes - coffee style setting. There is also a variety of foodstuffs and wines to purchase. The place is nicely presented and has a pleasant feel about it. Plenty of... More

During the first week of January holidays we decided to drive down to Merrick's to meet friends for lunch. We were glad we had made a booking at Merrick's General Store Bistro, as it was very busy the day we went. The menu was full of french bistro classics and lots of fresh seafood, seasonal local produce and french charcuterie,... More

We had great food with fantastic service. And the wait staff were simply professional and friendly. Thank you to Ellie. Definitely a must do if your in... More

I do and things have changed a bit since the 1970s. We stopped for lunch last week and it was a fabulous experience. We were seated quickly, menus arrived quickly, our waitress arrived to take orders quickly and the food arrived quickly. It was a bit of a contrast to when we stopped at Wye River General Store a month... More

Authentic country charm with delicious food and welcoming staff this tin and timber shed is a destination not to be missed.

The Merricks General Wine Store is a Peninsula icon established in 1924. Today it serves as the Cellar Door for Baillieu, Elgee Park and Quealy wines.

The French inspired seasonal menu on offer for breakfast and lunch can be enjoyed by discerning tourist and locals 7 days a week.

Customers are able to dine at table, taste wines by the open fire, on the sea view deck or under the vines whilst experiencing the rustic country atmosphere of this charming heritage building.
