One of the few good eateries in the Coonawarra, fodder is the place to go to for a more casual meal. Owned and run by husband and wife team Melissa and John Innes, the focus of this cafe/restaurant is actually on wines rather than food. John is Rymill’s former winemaker and it’s worth getting him to come over to your table for advice when perusing the extensive wine list, filled with both local and international drops. Despite the wine focus, the food here is still very good. John can be seen manning the wood-fired pizza oven that turns out thin-crust pizza with simple but delicious toppings, while Melissa takes care of the extra dishes such as steak and chips, and gnocchi with a wild mushroom sauce, along with the best coffee in town.
