The duck with orange braised witlof; the golden roasted free range chicken of summer with corn and yabbies, or the truffled Pecorino tart with artichokes Barigoule, eel, Murray Cod and trout; rabbit and hare, speak of local waterways and fields.

Wild damsons, Winter Nealis pears, quinces and yellow crab apples feature in fabulous desserts and are made into delicious preserves for enhancing leaner seasons. Each seasonal menu takes you on a trip down country lanes, through orchards and across the regions farm paddocks.

During the day, the sunlit restaurant offers magnificent views and guests can witness the local kookaburra family fly around nearby.
