SPRING/SUMMER 2021 MENU
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
