Merricks General Store

There’s a lonely looking barn shed on the side of the Frankston Flinders road. You’d expect a yokel farmer shaking a pitchfork to come rushing out to greet you. It’s actually a culinary hot spot of the Peninsula, serving up seasonal appropriate dishes in aged, rustic surrounds.

The pie is ridiculously awesome, on our day unleash the duck and chicken pie from the pastry covering. The duo of poultry is slow cooked and stewed in a rich stock gravy reduction that’s so rich and hearty, roasted parsnip, broccolini freshens the plate up. It’s worth the long wait, so allocate plenty of time for a lazy Sunday arvo. Yup, it’s perfect country style food to feed the farmer inside.
