Barnyard 1978, Yallingup

So while in Yallingup I was “hangry” (angry because I’m hungry). I needed feeding or my poor husband was going to suffer my bad mood. Trying to do the right thing he put me in the car and drove me to Dunsborough to buy me a late lunch. Unfortunately Dunsborough’s lovely cafes were not what I was needing this day.Barnyard 1978, Yallingup So we returned to the car and headed back towards Yallingup, hoping in vain to find an open restaurant on a Monday afternoon – out of season. Just as I was about to give up hope my husband decided to try “just one more place”.Barnyard 1978, YallingupTurning on to Canal Rocks Road, he pulled up outside Barnyard 1978 restaurant and we headed inside to see if we were still able to get lunch.Barnyard 1978, YallingupIt was just coming to the end of service but the waitress kindly seated us and gave us a few minutes to peruse the menu. I always find that a quick decision is a good decision, so my husband chose mushroom pappardelle with truffle butter, thyme, reggiano and confit garlic.Barnyard 1978, YallingupI had to try the linguine with pulled lamb, roasted capsicum, feta and jalapeno salt. As the meals arrived I was ready for the usual “ hum ha” pasta, but at the first mouthful my stomach thought it had died and gone to heaven. My husband agreed, the pasta was simple but amazing!Whilst waiting for our meals we did a little wine tasting to choose our bottle of red to accompany the pasta and the Barnyard Cab Sav, Merlot Blend was a perfect choice for a lighter red at lunchtime. At $30 a bottle it is also excellent value for a winery in Margaret River.Barnyard 1978, YallingupNot one to usually bother with dessert, I was soon tempted to try something sweet. Chocolate soil with chocolate mousse and freeze dried raspberries for me…Barnyard 1978, Yallingup…and honey cheesecake with homemade honeycomb for my husband. Yum and yum!The people on the next table had a cheese plate so I had to sneak a photo of that too!Barnyard 1978, YallingupBarnyard 1978 doesn’t just do great food and wine. They also have numerous different types of honey that you can try and buy, as well as their homemade pasta. I can absolutely recommend it for lunch or even just for a wine or honey tasting. Overall it’s a little bit quirky, a little bit funky, but definitely up there for a return visit.Barnyard 1978, Yallingup
