A dream for many years, Hillbrook Hygge was born in May 2018.
The owners, Bron & Al, have shared their Nordic foodie passions with family and friends, and now open their doors to fellow gastronomes who revere and crave Nordic comfort food, consumed in the warmth and cosiness of their delightful and rustic vineyard setting.
With vines at the door, and the dam as a scenic backdrop, there is a vibrant and relaxed environment to share conversation, social activities from the past, with good food and great service.
The ambience will ensure that you return to develop the relationship that correlates to Nordic hospitality, Hygge style.

the important stuff
All food is freshly prepared home-style, so please don't be in a rush.
Relax and enjoy the hospitality, and yes we are a licensed venue, however we are also a family orientated business and discourage loud and abrasive behaviour.
We do our best to cater for special dietary requirements however please understand that we are a small family-run business, not a large-scale commercial enterprise.
Our menu is small and changes based on seasonality and availability, what you have one week may not be available the next.
