One of the things our visitors love most about staying at the Lodge is the food. And that’s all thanks to Diane, our on site chef who cooks every dish from scratch using the freshest seasonal ingredients. You’ll find in her mouthwatering repertoire everything from homemade pies, butter chicken, and lasagna to freshly baked brownies, and soft-as-you-like muffins. Rest assured, when Di’s in the house, you won’t see jarred or pre-packed food anywhere, just the makings of wholesome cuisine, lovingly prepared.

Despite this, some of our guests still prefer to self cater, and that’s fine with us, too. Guests can familiarise themselves with the self catering-kitchen, which comes equipped with two six-burner stoves and every pot, pan, and utensil you could possibly need. So whether you’re knocking up something as unsophisticated as a plate of beans on toast, or going all out with apron and toque, and playing Masterchef to 50 people or more, you’ll be be covered for the job. You can see a full kitchen equipment list here.

If the evening is invitingly balmy and you feel like cooking beneath the emerging stars and dining al fresco, there’s a gas barbecue outside big enough to cater for large groups.
