We had our wedding here at RJM's. The venue was fantastic and we had a great day. Joan was very responsive with our queries while organising our day and she was very flexible. We thoroughly enjoyed our wedding and would recommend this venue for small, intimate events.

Had my husbands 30th here and I couldn't rate this place higher. Communication was excellent and all staff we amazing. Venue was gorgeous and we lucked out on a nice day and were able to enjoy the outside courtyard. Incredibly accommodating for my dad who is in a wheelchair as well.

A beautiful family run wine bar. Came for a cute date afternoon with my wife. Live music, mock tails to go along with the regular options for beverages and tasteful desserts. Was worth the trip up from Melbourne and will visit RJM again. Thank you Roger, Joan and Melissa for being such friendly hosts.

Stephanie Vassallo

I had my baby shower at RJMs Wine Bar and it was fantastic. Joan made the entire experience very easy and smooth. The location has easy parking as it’s directly across from a supermarket and the venue is stunning.

Monica Allen

A truly lovely wine bar with fine food from cheese platters to sweets. Different live entertainment is featured, the artists are viewed on their website, and the lovely area out the back is used for parties and entertainment, and it is a beautiful spot for booking occasions. The owners truly care about you as a customer, and they are very kind and friendly.
