Dining Out

Race to The Mill for awesome day

DO you harbour a love for great food, bubbling wine and a cheeky punt on the horses?

Then you should be racing down to The Mill Hotel on Tuesday, November 5 for an awe-inspiring three course share banquet paired with a flute of sparkling Croser or schooner of Furphy.
Just imagine, freshly grilled Hervey Bay scallops followed by a succulent lamb shoulder slow cooked for seven hours served with fresh green beans, crushed pesto potatoes and a red wine jus, roasted Provencale chicken with carefully hand picked carrots, parsnips and roasted sweet potato then finished off with a bed of fresh fruit drizzled in golden-sweet honey and Greek yoghurt.

A spokesperson for The Mill said book your seats now, “at just $50 a head you’ll be kicking yourself with just how little you’re paying for such a great day out”.
Doors open from 10am with multiple betting facilities, competitive sweeps, and a professional photographer to capture all the fabulous memories.
“Pop on your best frock or smartest suit to go in the draw to win our best dressed competition. Then from 3pm a huge field of horses contest in Flemington’s mighty race that has the nation stopped in its tracks and we have the very best view from every corner of the venue,” she said.
After the race, enjoy a big Melbourne Cup after party with a live four-peice band from 4pm.
