Food Options and Reverse BYO® @ Puddleduck
Sit down, relax and soak up the Puddleduck experience. In addition to our vineyard and cheese platters we have some light snack options, a perfect way to refuel during a busy day of tasting in the Coal River Valley.
Our wines are available by the glass or bottle and can be enjoyed on site as long as they are accompanied by food. See our menu for current offerings or you may Reverse BYO® (bring your own picnic food) in our outside areas.
Our unique Reverse BYO® started in 2007. It has become very popular with locals and visotors alike, and enables groups to keep the costs down by being able to bring your own food to Puddleduck to enjoy in our outdoor areas, as long as you leave all drinks to us!
Our Reverse BYO® is weather dependant and only available in our outdoor areas so a "Plan B" is always a good idea.
If it is a very special occasion you can also hire our indoor area which has large glass doors spilling out onto our deck and down to the green zone.
All drinks are to be purchased at Puddleduck. This includes soft drinks, tea and coffee, soda water, pop tops, water, etc. Best to leave your liquids at home. Tap water is freely available at Puddleduck, bottled water, sparkling water and soda are available for purchase. In addition to soft drinks we have our Puddleduck wines, local beers Puddleduck ciders, plus local gin, vodka and whiskey to mix with anything of your choosing!
We have a few different areas available, depending on your group size and demographic;
Puddleduck's new adult only zone "the deck" is ideal for an intimate picnic for two, or for a fun catch up with friends.
Our deck now has a vergola roof and pull down clear cafe windows which can be closed in the event of rain, too much sunshine or wind.
The Green Zone
Our grassed area is designed for larger groups and families in mind.
There is a shade cloth area that is ideal for groups of 30 - 60 people which can be booked for a small fee. The remaining area has scattered tables and chairs with umbrellas for shade.
This area also has a playground suitable for younger children as well as a large grassed and fenced area, ideal for burning off energy with a ball game or cricket, or for feeding the ducks.
A BBQ's are available on request ($10 fee for gas and cleaning).
To avoid disappointment, bookings are always recommended.
