Bennetts on Bellarine FAQ
Is there a time limit on bookings?

How do I make a change to my booking?
Changes can be made via email request at email@example.com.
How do I cancel my booking?
Cancellations can be made to the booking online up to 72 hours prior to arrival via the link in your confirmation email.

I want to make a booking for the weekend, but I don't want to pay a booking fee.
For Lunch & Afternoon grazing bookings on the weekends there is a $5 booking fee per person. This goes towards our live music acts. If you prefer not to pay a booking fee you can opt to walk in on the day. Keep in mind that walk ins will be seated based on availability. Alternately there is no booking fee for our Brunch session.
I am bringing my kids, do I have to include them in the booking number?
Children over 12 months of age must be included in booking numbers and bookings fees apply on weekends.
I want to book outside on the lawn, what happens if the weather is wet?
The lawn area is weather dependant. Whilst we will try to move booking inside or undercover we can't guarantee this option will be available. In the case that windy or wet conditions prevent you from sitting outside and we can't accomodate you inside we will offer a refund of any booking fees paid.
Can I bring my dog?
Well behaved dogs are welcome for outside bookings on the lawn, on a lead, BYO water, please make a note on the booking.
We are celebrating a birthday! Can I bring my own cake?
If you are bringing a cake to celebrate we do not charge a fee. However you must cut & serve it yourself, please provide your own plates/cutlery/napkins for this. Please bring a cooler/esky as we are unable to store cakes in our kitchen.

I know Bennetts is eclectic and rustic, what seating options do you have?
We have a variety of seating options. Some seating is on traditional tables, on lounges with low tables, on bar tables with stools or some logs with space to lounge out on the lawn. If you have people with mobility issues please make sure to request a traditional style table.
