Slate Restaurant

Slate Restaurant at Pikes first opened its doors in October 2018, and since that time has cemented itself as one of the Clare Valley’s most reputable culinary destinations.

Recently awarded the Clare Valley’s “Cellar Door with Best Food” by Gourmet Traveller Wine Magazine in 2020 and awarded a Chef Hat from the AGFG in 2019, Slate is testament to Regional South Australia being home to some of the best food and wine in the country.

Slate’s menu features the best local produce from in and around the region, with seasonal fruits and vegetables from the Estate’s kitchen garden, all showcased alongside Pikes estate grown wines and craft beers from Pikes Beer Company.

Head Chef, Rory Brennand, brings his passion for regional dining to the table and delivers a Modern Australian menu, influenced by French, British and Japanese cooking, creating simple yet delicious dishes, such as “36° South” scotch fillet, charred broccolini, crispy pancetta, chilli, lemon, garlic.

Slate's wine list naturally features the full range of Pikes table wines, as well as a selection of reserve and museum wines available from the private cellar. Pikes Beer Company, also features on tap, with a small range of premium spirits and freshly-brewed coffee available from the restaurant bar.
