What the judges said in 2017

Ultra modern cider house next to adventure park

The Flying Brick Cider House in Wallington situated walking distance from the highly popular Adventure Park offers great foods, local wines, tasting paddles of ciders, prompt and efficient service, and good value for money. All set in a striking and comfortable setting overlooking the vines with plenty of play areas for children, and inside extensive natural light and a cosy fireplace. Flying Brick is a great place to bring family, friends and clients.  The foods served were designed for sharing.  Good quality fresh ingredients with a great balance of flavours in a good range of small and larger options. Dishes included Empanada of three parcels filled with slow cooked shredded beef accompanied by an olive Tapenade and a crunchy relish, and perfectly cooked smoked pork belly with crunchy Morcilla crumbs and saffron poached pears, and confit of Salmon salad served with black garlic, croutons, beetroot & Davidson Plum Béarnaise with lots of flavours that married together well.  The desserts included cappuccino crème brulee, presented in a cup with froth on top in the style of cappuccino.  As you reached the thin crisp caramelised layer, a creamy, smooth and rich coffee cream burst full flavour, left you wanting more. Crispy sugar coated, fluffy jam donuts accompanied this dessert making this perfect for sharing. The ginger and quince poached pudding was a light sponge cake, the quince cooked perfectly while retaining its texture. In short lots of flavoursome dishes to choose from.  The wines and ciders were mostly from their vineyards and brewery.  There were plenty of house wines from Bellarine by the glass and a range of good Flying Brick ciders.  Food and drink prices represented good value for money.
