Lunch Fri-Sun noon-2pm
Dinner Thu-Sat 6pm-9pm
The welcome is genuine and the mood as sunny as a friend's country kitchen. Inhale deeply, take in the view of green-on-green paddocks rolling to mountains beyond St Isidore's simply furnished dining room, and survey a menu that shows good judgement, a light touch and exemplary local produce; wander outside, unlatch the farm gate, and see much of it growing in the orchard and the vegetable plot. Zucchini flowers and pumpkins later meet on the plate in seasonal unison, the former stuffed with goat's cheese and deep-fried, the latter mixed with mustard fruits and pine nuts. Other inspired seasonal pairings include tomatoes and clams in their own broth, spiked with samphire, and local blue-eye roasted with kipfler potatoes and teamed with caperberries and celeriac rémoulade. The wine list changes seasonally, too, and champions interesting varietals by independent regional makers following their hearts - just like St Isidore.
