Steeped in a rich heritage, The Abbey at Chester’s stands as tribute to its original owner. Sydney Chester built the premises in 1890 in the Swan Valley Western Australia, Following a refurbishment of the building in early 2004 we aim to create exceptional experience highlighting great food and drink in a relaxed environment with professional and friendly service.

We believe in good food, Heafod Glen wines and of course the very best in Belgian beer here at The Abbey. We are flexible to accommodate group bookings as well as walk-in patrons during.

The cellar door is open for tasting of a broad range of estate grown and made Heafod Glen wines, all of which are available on the menu.

The cellar door showcases what was a very successful year for the winery, with gold medals for both our 2008 and 2009 Viognier, 2008 Reserve Chardonnay (x3) and 2007 Cabernet Sauvignon.


Product Highlight

Pauwel Kwak

Bosteels Brewery Buggenhout, Belgium

Pauwel Kwak is an amber ale brewed since the 1980s with 8.4% abv. Supposedly it is named after an 18th-century innkeeper and brewer, Pauwel Kwak. The beer is filtered before packaging in bottles and kegs.

As with other Belgian beers, Kwak has a branded glass with its own distinctive shape. It is held upright in a wooden stand; the brewery claims the glass was designed by the innkeeper Pauwel Kwak in the early 19th century for coachmen who would stop at his coaching tavern and brewery named "De Hoorn", though the beer and the glass were not launched until the 1980s.
