Our Brief History
The Refectory by Bursaria at Werribee Park has been the caterer in this heritage listed property since 2015. The Refectory has established and enjoyed a stellar reputation since then; and has become a sought after venue – well known for creating stunning, unique and unforgettable weddings, private events, social gatherings and corporate functions.
Evolving from the impact of Covid in March 2020, The Refectory underwent a creative transformation to offer unique, intimate dining experiences located throughout the surrounds of glorious Werribee Park, with a focus on providing Bursaria’s signature quality wholesome food to be savoured by everyone.
This led to the creation of The Refectory’s catered picnics – set in the stunning Rose Garden or amongst the natural beauty of the lawns; an all-day outdoor dining menu enjoyed on the gorgeous Werribee Mansion Terrace; and a delightful cake and coffee parlour for take-away.
The Refectory by Bursaria is known for hosting extravagant weddings and gala dinners of 150+ guests, so visitors can expect nothing less than wedding grade perfection in each dish; and unique and tasty options across all dining offerings.
Quality food is the focus at The Refectory, with each flavour, colour and texture intensively considered throughout every dish. Local produce is the absolute hero of the menu, allowing guests to truly celebrate and indulge in everything the local region has to offer.
