About Bankvale Run Restaurant at Marnong Estate
Bankvale Run restaurant is the place to enjoy good times with family and friends. Come in and enjoy a hearty meal with matched wine, or a cocktail while taking in the stunning views of the Macedon Ranges.
Alternatively, our newly opened Atrium Public Bar & Terrace is the perfect place to kick back with friends and family, order some wholesome pub style food, while enjoying a great range of beverages that are on offer.
The service today was very disappointing, it took over half an hr to be served. Each course took a really long time to come out. We even had guests who had to leave without eating because it took so long. Duck croquettes were luke warm when served and so was the apple crumble. Pork belly was inedible, cold and dry.
I went to the Bankvale Run Restaurant for lunch on Friday 7 May 2021 and it was the most disappointing experience I’ve ever had at a restaurant. My parents were visiting from NZ after the travel bubble opened and I was meeting them after 18 months. I especially took them to the Bankvale Run Restaurant hoping to give them an amazing dining experience with 5 star quality food. Firstly the service was very slow although at the time we ordered our meals there were only two tables (including ours) occupied in the restaurant. As part of our order we ordered one of their pizzas and what we were served was horrifying. My Dad was eating the pizza and suddenly took out of his month what looked like a piece of glass. I called the waitress and showed her what we found. The waitress said “It’s not glass, it’s jelly or something.” We asked her to check because it was a hard object and clearly was not edible. She said she will go inside and check with the chef. She returned and very casually said “The chef said it’s not glass, it’s plastic. We’re sorry and we would like to offer you complimentary beverages.” My whole family was in disbelief at the waitresses’ unconcerned behaviour. She did not seem apologetic at all and had a bad attitude. Neither the manager on duty (who was going around the tables checking on the guests) nor the chef bothered to come to our table to provide an explanation or apologise. How did the plastic get into the pizza? What if my Dad had chocked on the plastic? Would the restaurant had then take this seriously? When I went up to pay I strongly raised my concerns with the Manager to which he said “Yes I heard about that”. So he knew what had happened but did not bother to come check on our table. Shocking! Also he did not offer any compensation when I paid for our meals either. So I paid in full and left in disbelief to the attitude of the staff. I would never recommend this place to anyone and I will never be visiting this restaurant again. I’m hoping this review will make the restaurant take this mishap seriously.
Wonderful Place, wonderful views. wonderful food and fantastic service. Can't wait to go again!!!!
Just a delightfully experience. We will be back again soon.
We got together to celebrate a friends belated 60th, Covid gets in way of life, I have been before and it was my recommendation. All who attended had a lovely time and said they would return. Someone said great spot to spend the weekend & is investigating this. All Happy Diners - no Complaints. Staff were efficient and unobstrusive. Good job all.
Food was great once it was served, Venue and Staff were great.and friendly. Staff require to explain the menu and ordering process when you are seated. We had to get a staff attention and request for them to explain the process.
Beautiful view, friendly staff, excellent food. Will definitely be back again!
We had a Great night with great service food
We had a lovely lunch. And the staff added a candle to my husbands dessert for his birthday..very nice gesture
This was a surprise, out-of-the-way find! Beautiful establishment with great food, wine and amazing views from the restaurant. Service was a little slow given it was a weekday lunch, but the wait staff were very friendly and helpful when we did interact with them. The shop also has tempting items and produce to take home. We will definitely be back and will be spreading the Marnong word!!! Thanks for a lovely afternoon.
We have been to your establishment often. We will come again. Just a comment that the wine came a bit late for some family members. Views are stunning.
The only issue on the night was the time between the entree and main meal which was well over 1 hour and 15 minutes and l had to ask how long it would be. Otherwise food was great.
We organised mother's day dinner for our partners recently in Bankvale Run Restaurant at Marnong Estate. They have received a really good welcome, followed by excellent service and food. We are looking forward to visit the place again.
We had a party of twenty in a private room. A beautiful view and warm fire created a cosy atmosphere. The service, food and day was lovely.
Had to wait over 1 and a half hours for meal, and that was because we followed up with the waitress and possibly the “manager” on site. Disappointed over all. The food however was very nice but unfortunately will not be returning. It spoiled our special occasion.
Amazing views and beautiful food. Highly recommend
A wonderful day. Food and service was excellent. A big thank you to Demi (I hope I have her name right) she was superb.
This is my second time dining at Bankvale Run Restaurant, there’s a stunning view from the entire restaurant, the food is delicious, however due to the volume of guests dining the main meals took over an hour to come out after entrees, but the wait was worth it. The wine list is good, but not huge. The service on this occasion was outstanding! Even with the main delay, our waiter was attentive and as I said outstanding.
Great service, lovely atmosphere and friendly staff
The pizzas are expensive at $30,
Beautiful surroundings - love the restaurant, cafe and farm shop. Wines are excellent as well.
My girlfriend and I had a beautiful 3 course lunch with friendly service and very accommodating. Had a wonderful day!!
Lovely food and service. Great views. Will definitely be back.
Great night, the ambience was great and our waitress was a great ambassador for the Marnong Estate; in particular, Bankvale Run restaurant. Highly recommend it and we’ll definitely be back!!
Always enjoy dining here, the staff are very friendly and professional.
