The Royal Mail Hotel in Dunkeld will open a new restaurant in October, called Wickens at the Royal Mail Hotel.
Located on the hotel’s property on the southern tip of Victoria’s Grampians, the new restaurant will be named after Robin Wickens who has worked as executive chef of the Royal Mail Hotel since September 2013.
The current Royal Mail Hotel dining room will close upon the opening of Wickens at the Royal Mail Hotel, allowing for the hotel’s casual dining counterpart, Parker Street Project, to double in size.
“This is a once in a career opportunity to inject a deeper identity into the work my team and I have been doing at the Royal Mail,” said Robin Wickens. “The garden and the season are key elements in determining the dishes we create and from October the new dining space will add to the overall experience; making an even stronger connection between the land and the dining table.”
Details of the design and the five and eight course tasting menus will be released in the coming months.
