Mt Macedon

Nice dining area
We caught up with E and P for lunch at the Mt Macedon Hotel.    Great chicken pie and duck and mushroom risotto, and needless to say the chocolate pudding desert certainly slipped down.  

All this with a bottle of local shiraz came to a very reasonable tab at the end (helped by just $3 for a cappuccino!)  Pity it's an hour away, too far to get to on a regular basis!  I'd imagine it would be busy at weekends, especially on the deck on a warm day.
The Mt Macedon village is quite nice, although small.   The general store is interesting and the azaleas and rhododendron at the Uniting Church, rebuilt after the 1983 fires, were in full flower and were very impressive.
