Wollombi General Store

The General Store is a must see in the village of Wollombi. It is  the original store that was constructed before the end of the 19th century. It presently functions as a general store, stocking groceries, household goods, stationary, local fruit and vegetables, meats, confectionery, dairy items and gifts.

There is a  selection of locally made honey, jams, oils and relishes. The latest addition to the store is a coffee shop serving coffee from Beancraft, various teas, Bondi Chai and hot chocolate. We are lucky enough to be one of only two coffee shops in Australia that have this blend of coffee. There is a supply of sweet treats to compliment the coffee and hot pies and sausage rolls are available.

We have opened the gallery in the shop which hosts a display of local art and craft which is available for purchase. The shop acts as a Australia Post Office agency and we are a gas supplier for the area. There is a small tourist information area and information about upcoming local events.

OPENING HOURS: Open Monday – Wednesday from 8am to 5.30pm, Thursday – Saturday from 8am to 6pm, and Sunday from 8am to 5pm.

Settlers Kitchen @ Mulla Villa

Settlers Kitchen at Mulla Villa (c 1840) is a new dining experience in Wollombi – the restaurant is in the old house that was built prior to the main residence. It has the old kitchen fire place where we now have an open fire going during the cool weather. The walls are the original stone work made by the original settlers prior to the main house being built. It has been restored, including a picturesque verandah, to make an ideal location for your next Hunter Valley getaway.

You can also enjoy a tour through the 1840 convict built home and the interesting convict accommodation, or a wander around the property to visit various historic sites.

Settlers Kitchen is open every Friday and Saturday night for dinner. Breakfast on Saturday, Sunday and Monday. Lunch, morning and afternoon tea available 7 days a week. We feature great home cooking such as Veal Osso Buco and Chicken Schnitzel, Sticky Date Pudding and Apple Rhubarb Crumble, and are fully licensed.
