We always enjoy dining at South Hill. The food is exceptional and always thoroughly enjoyed. The wines totally complement the food so whole dining experience is delightful. Service is very attentive and hosts Kevin and Sally make sure guests are well care for.

Description
Enjoy a long, leisurely lunch in beautiful Elgin Valley surroundings and delicious Tapas & Platters, made from a selection of locally sourced produce and ingredients. Add to the mix the easy yet well-informed service, gracious hosts & owners Kevin & Sandy King, excellent refreshing Cool Climate style South Hill & Kevin King wines & you have an experience that is pure bliss. Guests lingering until late in the afternoon, playing croquet or a game of boules, and children playing on the stretched lawn terraces are a familiar sight.
