Perfectly cooked, balanced dishes with creative and complex elements give the customer a chance to really experience top level dining. it!"
“If every contemporary pub in Australia was fashioned on the Public INN, the culinary world would be flocking to our shores.
This was no ordinary meal, it was superb, plus the most professional staff in Central Vic and a place to explore a global and local wine & beer list in a cool, swank environment. The Public INN is what modern day dining is all about. Impressive on every level, it should not be missed.”
“The menu, presentation and delicate balance of flavours of the food show skill and intelligence, the wine list shows dedication and a desire to offer only the cream of Victorian wine, and the high standard of service reflect the polish of the dining room. Mercato at Daylesford is simply a lovely restaurant, and a very enjoyable place to visit time and time again. ”
