Enjoy the Moment


Welcome to Elm, home to a truly special dining experience in Bright, Victoria. 

At Elm, you are made welcome and treated like one of the family.  

Channeling the inspiration of Head Chef Kauri Watkin, the Elm kitchen offers a “made with love” seasonal menu where the best produce of the region is the local hero. To add to that, our front-of-house team deliver a simple, stylish experience with warmth.  

To round out the evening, Sommelier, Matt Cridge will recommend perfectly matched wines from our extensive cellar from both local and international wineries.
