LVN Restaurant


LVN Restaurant is the new dining experience at Bird in Hand. The culmination of Bird in Hand’s dedication to art, design, excellence in cuisine and fine wine.

The spirited daughter of Bird in Hand founders, Andrew and Susie Nugent, inspired the name of the newly reimagined restaurant at the Woodside estate.  LVN – the initials of Lalla Victoria Nugent – is also the name given to the winemakers’ prestigious pinnacle cuvée, due for release in 2027.

Executive chef Jacob Davey and team, weave together an ever-changing menu, inspired by the three homes of Bird in Hand, Woodside (Peramangk), Finniss (Ngarrindjeri) and Tasmania (Paredareme).
