“The menu incorporates the seasonal produce grown in our vegetable garden and orchard to showcase the best Australian produce with an English influence,” says Cunningham.

“We have added new dishes such as lamb shoulder and have kept the traditional favourites such as the famous Peach Melba. With this year’s vintage shaping well, we have ensured all elements of the menu complement the award-winning wines from our cellar door.”
