Paddock to plate food philosophy

Our meals are hand prepared for our guests every evening with fresh vegetables straight from the garden and locally sourced meat, fish, cheese and eggs. We preserve fruit in season for deserts, thus ensuring full flavour. We have access to local venison, organic lamb, free range pork, fresh wasabi and truffles in season.

Evening meals

Evening meals typically consist of three courses, an entree, main course and desert or cheeses. Our chef will discuss the menu with you before preparing the meals to discover your preferences. All meals are prepared individually with whatever ingredients are to hand at the time. There is no set menu and we have experience with a range of diets including gluten free, lactose free and low fat.

Wine

We have a small cellar of Tasmanian wines, chosen annually, to compliment our food. Local vinyards that feature regularly on our wine list are Vello, Three Willows Vinyard, Ghost Rock and Stoney Rise. We also stock Tasmanian beers and cider as well as non alcoholic drinks.

Breakfasts

Breakfasts feature a full range of fresh and home preserved fruits, breads, cereals, yoghurt, as well as hot dishes such as eggs, bacon and tomatoes.

Lunches

Lunches are either a picnic hamper or a soup and salad combination with fresh home-baked bread and local cheese.

Special occasions

For a special occasion birthday or anniversary we can cook almost anything you would like, as long as it is local, including crayfish in season. Crayfish will add to the cost of an evening meal and needs to be ordered a week at least ahead of your arrival.

Degustation Dining Experience and Tour

An exclusive 2 day gourmet experience is available for a group of 4 to 6 people with exclusive use of the Lodge Includes airport transfers from Launceston, supper on arrival and a bottle of wine, all meals including a 5 course degustation meal with matched Tasmanian wines. Champagne breakfast on Sunday and a food and wine tour on the way back to Launceston or the airport.
Deloraine forms the centre of a rich agricultural district and increasingly local farmers are turning to specialty crops to diversify their incomes. Local cheesmakers Asgrove and Elgar Farms provide a variety of cheeses, milk and yoghurt. Other foods are sourced from a local traditional smallgoods maker and salmon and ginsing producer 40degree South. Free range eggs and organic meats come from the neighbours at High Marsh. Fresh fruit and vegetables, much of it organic, come from the valley and increasingly our own garden and orchard. Because the raw ingredients for our meals are sourced locally, as well as being fresh, this also reduces the food miles and environmental impact of food transport.
