Thank you noteWe can cater for a range of events, from a small intimate family gathering to exclusive use of the whole venue.

We love to throw a good party with options of small intimate sit-down receptions for up to 80 guests or slightly larger cocktail parties for up to 100.

Every wedding – every event – is unique: if there is anything you are looking for please talk to us and we will do what we can to accommodate it.

Floor plan for seated reception with dance floor

We like to use seasonal, local, fresh produce and prepare as much as we can on site. This allows us the flexibility to change our menu to suit your tastes and guests’ dietary needs.

For a formal dining atmosphere, our sit-down menu gives the flexibility of having either a two- or three-course menu as alternate drop or table d’hôte. Guests can relax and socialise while enjoying full table service. Alternatively, guests can serve themselves from shared platters.

At a cocktail party reception, your guests can enjoy our drop platters or we can offer them a selection of our individual canapés.

Of course we can also cater for birthdays, engagement parties, retirement celebrations or any other event you can think of. Whatever the occasion, we look forward to helping to make your special day a truly memorable one. Phone us on (03) 6248 1162, or use our contact form.
