  • Stumbled into Mt Uncle after a few hours at nearby Granite Gorge. What a beautiful place. We were desperate for a bite to eat and a coffee, sadly we arrived at 2.10pm, just too late for lunch. My part...  more »

  • We loved it, visited on my birthday weekend food and alcohol tour of the tablelands. It was awesome, we got to try the whole range... wow!! No wonder Mt Uncle cleans up with all their awards and distinctions! Clare was very hospitable and taught us so much about each product. Can't wait to visit again 😊
  • This place is a real gem recommending anyone to look and have something beautiful to eat.
  • The food is delicious. I highly recommend the pesto pizza with goat cheese. Very nice. The surrounding is beautiful. We didn't try the liquor, just tap beer, which was nice.
  • A very understated distillery, great gin. The restaurant had a great view out of some huge windows as well. Worth stopping in for any table lands trip.
  • Update: The restaurant is up and running again. The staff are friendly and the menu is tantalising. It is a distillery so if you were going to bring your children, just remember that. I wouldn't give my children alcohol so logic follows that I wouldn't bring them to a distillery. Forgive the staff then for not bring used to little underage humans. Best White Rum I've ever had. Cant believe this is in my own backyard. Wait till i tell my mates!!!
