Staff & Dining

Locally sourced and fresh home grown produce are key ingredients for the chef. Fine food is the highlight of any guests visit. The staff work with top quality chefs using locally sourced, often home-produced ingredients and everything is made from scratch in the kitchens. Dining can be formal or informal, indoors or outdoor, themed or traditional. Guests can set the menu and mealtimes – or this can be left up to us.

The chefs create a magnificent array of breakfast, dinner and afternoon tea menus available for all sorts of occasions. Whether it be a celebration dinner, a cocktail party or a packed lunch to take fishing or walking, they have the menu for you. They also have an excellent wine cellar, or you can also choose your own wine and it will be ordered in for you.
