Hidden amongst the vines, Nanna Kerr’s Kitchen takes up residence in what used to be The Purple Grape. Robyn Drayton has sold up and moved out, and the Kerr’s, or should I say, Miranda Kerr’s brother and his partner, have moved in. Originally working out of a space in Lovedale, Nanna Kerr’s Kitchen is now that little bit closer to the Hunter Valley action in Pokolbin. The cosy interior as well as the welcoming timber deck is an ideal location in all seasons. It’s good to see that Nanna Kerr insists the Devonshire Tea be on the menu rather than on the specials board, where it can be dismissed if the chef isn’t in the mood for baking. The scones are slightly crisp, and light and fluffy inside, and considering it is late in the day, this is a positive. The consistency of the homemade strawberry jam is too thin and runny, and there is barely enough for one scone. The whipped cream is quite aerated but is good enough. I love the presentation, the fruit selection brightens up the plate, and the passionfruit is a nice touch. Open from Thursday to Monday.
Tea: An eclectic range of mostly organic tea (tea bags) served in a pot.
Overall: A gorgeous location overlooking the vines.
