Smart casual is always preferred,however, we do also welcome the scruffy locals calling in after work for a few! and yes we do have an outdoor area, which caters to the smokers.

Description
Herd Bar & Grill incorporates an urban meets rural interior offering something unique and completely new to the Yarra Valley. This subterranean bunker wouldn’t be out of place in the city and has been likened to any groovy bar in New York City. Chef Trevor's food style is modern Australian influenced by his love for Middle Eastern flavours and encourages shared plate grazing or dining. Boasting a late licence, Herd Bar caters and is welcoming to all, offering sensational service, ambience in an unpretentious relaxed space, a must destination whist meaning the glorious Yarra Valley.
