The Refectory Parlour – Eat, Drink and Celebrate

Born from the desire to offer something unique to the people of Melbourne, Geelong and the Surf Coast, Sara O’Callaghan of Bursaria Fine Foods, award winning caterers of The Refectory, created The Refectory Parlour. A location of the finest local food and wine in the region with a range of dining options to suit any occasion.

Forget your traditional sit-down meals within a restaurant and instead take a walk through the Werribee Park Rose Garden or smell the Lemon Scented Gums until you reach the perfect picnic spot.

If sitting amongst the lawns isn’t your cup of tea, then terrace dining may be for you. With

views of the expansive gardens and the Werribee Mansion architecture, you’re sure to be entertained for hours.

Picnics and Alfresco

We get it, picnics can be annoying to plan, organise and set-up with all the different meals, utensils and drinks required. What if we told you that it could be all done for you and you didn’t have to do a thing besides booking?

A one of a kind service within Werribee, The Refectory Parlour is now offering fully catered picnics and alfresco meals anywhere within the Werribee Park Mansion gardens.

Leave your worries at the park gates and let The Refectory team look after everything including set-up, decor, food, drinks and pack-down.
