Mornington Peninsula is home to some of the most glorious culinary experiences in Australia, with hatted restaurants and wineries dotted across the entire Shire.

People from near and far travel to eat at our restaurants, take in the beautiful scenery and enjoy everything the region has to offer.

A truly unique opportunity to create an iconic farm to fork food experience at one of the Peninsula's most visited destinations, The Briars, is now available.

We are looking for people with vision to elevate the existing restaurant and create the new Village Precinct, detailed in the Briars Master Plan. In The Village, the past will blend with the present as the village-feel of this historic property is brought back to life and blended seamlessly with a modern, memorable dining experience. Food grown locally or even at the Briars will be showcased in this beautiful, farm-to-form restaurant which has uninterrupted views across the Briars – you wouldn’t be surprised if a kangaroo hopped past during dinner service.

The restaurant, surrounding fields and heritage buildings can be utilised for functions, to create specialty experiences including coffee brewing or gin distilling or to create farmer’s markets selling locally grown food.

You’ll have the creative freedom to create the restaurant of your dreams. You may want to run the market gate, grow your own food or you might want to focus only on the restaurant – we will work those details out during negotiations.

There is a unique opportunity to capitalise on the growing residential and tourism market on the Peninsula in this coveted location close to major arterial roads and other iconic destinations. The Briars is home to many big events throughout the year, and we want to work with you to compliment these events.
