The Lane WineBar – CLOSED
You'll find this cosy wine bar in the heart of the Hills District.
For top-notch wines and a meal out in Castle Hill, head to The Lane WineBar. This cosy spot received a revamp in early-2019, so a visit will now see you choosing between three different spaces to sit — a fairy light-lit laneway, a hidden cocktail bar and the front library, which has shelves of vintage books and wine bottles lining one wall.
The massive wine bible includes over five pages of Coravin-sealed wines-by-the-glass alone. There are also heaps of aperitifs, digestifs and fortified wines, along with $10 house wines and a list of ten classic cocktails to boot.
Meanwhile, its seasonal menu currently features the likes of Cone Bay wild barramundi with goats cheese vinaigrette, spiced duck breast with fennel purée, cumin roasted baby carrots and juniper jus, barbecued sardines with horseradish and chive potato salad, and harissa roasted lamb rump with crispy artichokes. Yes, it's a special meal out on the town — but in your local 'hood.
