Where possible we use ORGANIC & LOCAL ingredients, and our own GARDEN GROWN produce.

We use local butcher shops for GRASS-FED & FREE-RANGE meat, chicken & eggs.

Our fish comes from the Hawkes Bay and is processed and couriered to us on the DAY-OF-THE-CATCH. 

​ We also have an excellent selection of FINE WINES & CHAMPAGNES
