Dining in Greytown

22 Jan 2011

On the same day we visited Martinborough for it’s wineries and olive groves, we spent our meal times dining in the neighbouring town of Greytown.  We had heard good things about Greytown in terms of shopping and food.  As well as being home to renown artisan bakery The French Baker and chocolate specialists Schoc, there are also a number of decent restaurants and cafes.
