Heronswood, one of the most unique Mornington Peninsula Restaurants

Your Diggers dining room

Heronswood Restaurant

Our Mornington Peninsula restaurant is located within historic Heronswood House, with vistas over our beautiful gardens.

the restaurant offers a wonderful place to escape from the crowds and relax over lunch or to recharge over morning or afternoon tea. The menu highlights fresh produce, local wine and vegetables from our organic gardens.
