We had the $65 per head set menu which was great. Who knew Brussels sprouts could taste so good? All local produce and wine by the glass. Worth the drive down to Second Valley.

Description
Leonards Mill is a regional restaurant in a 160 year old restored four mill. Our ethos is Eat Local and showcases the best that the Fleurieu Peninsula has to offer. We are paddock to plate, nose to tail, root to leaf. At Leonards Mill our menu changes as the seasons do. Leonards Mill is home to a productive vegetable garden and vast array of fruit trees. Open for lunch Wednesday to Sunday and dinner on Friday and Saturday. Our wine list showcases local boutique wineries. Alfresco dining on the deck in warmer months and inside when it’s cold. The Mill is a stunning 75 minute drive from Adelaide through the most beautiful landscapes on the Fleurieu. Located ten minutes from Yankalilla and Normanville and 15 minutes to the Kangaroo Island Ferry at Cape Jervis. We look forward to seeing you soon.
