The General



Built in 2016, The General is a tribute to the original McLaren Flat General Store and Post Office in the late 1800s. It was built in place of the telegraph room that operated through the early 1900s.

Like the General Store, our aim is to be the heart of the local community, offering a diverse range of reasons to come and hang out with us.


Pop in for a bite to eat or a glass of Zonte's Footstep wine or a beverage from other local producers. Wrap up your week and wind down with us at Fridays at the Flat, or check out our events page for upcoming Chef's Tables and other events.


Got an event? Keep it local and let us look after you and your loved ones. 

Currently home to Zonte's Footstep wines and a host of local producers. The General Wine Bar is a lively local hangout where we love to join forces with well-known local businesses while supporting initiatives that both empower and help individuals and communities.
