Christmas in July Dinner

Nan's Christmas Party#madewithlove

Our July’s Winemakers Dinner on Saturday 1st July 2017 is going to be a bit different; rather than have just one local Winemaker we will be celebrating many.

It’s Christmas in July and you’ll be treated to a festive menu featuring a selection of fabulous local wines hand picked by us; Matty & Jimmy Kerr.

The boys will personally introduce each dish using locally sourced produce and share some of their favourite local wines matched to each plate.

Canapés will be paired with Mulled Wine on the deck at 6.45pm.

You’ll then enjoy…

  • House Cured & Smoked Salmon with Wasabi Cream
  • Little Hill Farm Roast with all the Trimmings
  • Sirloin Steak with Béarnaise Sauce & Duck Fat Potatoes
  • Mince Pie with Homemade Christmas Pudding Ice Cream

Each course will feature a generous tasting of two perfectly matched wines. We love vegans and can cater for any dietary requirements just let us know when you book.

Places are strictly limited so please book now to avoid disappointment. It’s $109 per person including canapés, four courses, matched wines throughout, tea or coffee to finish and unlimited sparkling or filtered water with your meal.

We look forward to seeing you there xxx

We are back…


This is an apology to our regular customers and any first time guests that dined with us between 9th May and 8th June 2017.

We took some time out from the restaurant for a honeymoon and to attend a family wedding in the US. Unfortunately the leadership team that we left behind did not do us proud.

We are aware that some of the food was not up to standard and that on particular days customer service was unfortunately not a pleasant experience. You have our sincerest apologies.

We have exited a number of staff from the business and we are both now back out front with customers and in the kitchen creating deliciousness with our professional and loyal team.

Rest assured that next time you visit Nanna Kerr’s you can expect 5 Star service and exceptional food, made with love and as organic as we reasonably deliver at a decent price.

We have tweaked our opening hours to ensure that we maintain the high standards that Nan demands and are now open from 9am to 4pm 7 days a week for breakfast, brunch, lunch and all day High Teas.

Dinner is private functions only. We ask for a minimum of 12 guests and a maximum of 50 with 72 hours notice required. We design a menu around your personal favourite tastes and the seasonal produce we have available. It’s served family style; canapés and four courses. Please contact us for more information.

We highly recommend booking on Saturdays and Sundays to avoid disappointment.

And please if you’ve had a great experience at Nan’s do let TripAdvisor, Facebook Reviews and Google know.

Thank you for your ongoing support.

Love & Gratitude

Matty & Jimmy Kerr


Green Water now available at Nan’s


Just like the gorgeous souls at Vestal Water the Nanna Kerr’s Kitchen team wanted to do something about the waste associated with single use beverage containers (we sell a lot of sparkling water dark green glass bottles).


Antoine Marie Jean-Baptiste Roger, comte de Saint-Exupéry was a French writer, poet, aristocrat, journalist, and pioneering aviator said “Perfection is not achieved when there is nothing left to add, but when there is nothing left to take away.”

This very simple but eloquent statement beautifully encompasses Vestal’s philosophy ‘to provide an alternative that leaves no waste’ and that’s why we’ve chosen them as our new chilled, filtered water partner.

Vestal was immaculately conceived from a background of innovation driven by environmental, social and economic sustainability in 2008 across the water in Tasmania.

The company founders’ chose Vestal as a brand name and it stems from the Roman priestesses of Vesta, who unfortunately undertook a vow of chastity, but among their important responsibilities were two ritual tasks; drawing water from a sacred spring and keeping the eternal flame burning.

Vestal systems currently eliminate the use of  over 4 million single-use water bottles each year and Nanna Kerr’s Kitchen is delighted to be adding to that as of today.

All our customers can now enjoy unlimited quantities of chilled, filtered sparkling or still water for just $5 per person.

Oh yeah and we got draught beer fitted at the same time :-).

Wine List – Autumn 2016

Hunter Valley wooden sign with winery background

Matty, Jimmy and the Nanna Kerr’s team have had the arduous task of updating the wine list recently…

We are delighted to announce the arrival of Cockfighter’s Ghost, Poole’s Rock, Audrey Wilkinson and Ballabourneen alongside old favourites like Tamburlaine, Macquariedale, Domaine de Binet, Krinklewood and Bonics Estate.

The grapes grown on-site at Nanna Kerr’s Kitchen are bottled under the Baringbah label and we are currently serving Semillon, Chardonnay and Verdelho 2015 and the very easy Shiraz Cabernet 2016.

We have nine wines available by the glass including some very special aged Sauvignon Blanc and Syrah from Tamburlaine.

Baringbah wines are made with the grapes grown right in front the verandah at Nanna Kerr’s Kitchen – Jimmy loves the Semillon with Little Hill Farm Pate and Matty likes a glass or two of the Shiraz Cabernet with the Steak & Porcini Mushroom Pie!
