We have been offering three course silver service Dinners to guests for $125.00 per person since we took over in May 2022.

Unfortunately very few guests have taken up the offer and while everyone that has experienced our dinners say it’s one of the best dinner experiences they have ever had, they have been few and far between.

We spent considerable effort sourcing fresh local ingredients and prepared the meals from scratch, the ingredients have almost doubled in price.

Further we found not many people could eat a full three course dinner, most preferring lighter meals

We thought about increasing the price however even with the doubling of the price its simply not viable to prepare, cook serve and clean up a three course dinner for two people at random times.

There are many great restaurants in the area, in Cambridge and Matamata which is only 15 minutes car ride away, the following are some suggestions below. The most popular with our guests is Alpino’s in Cambridge which is always booked out in advance, they are all busy so please review them and book well in advance.

For special Celebrations for a minimum number of 8 dinners we will still offer the formal silver service dinners at the lodge however everyone will need to eat from the same menu’s and it would need to be booked with plenty of notice. The Lamb Shanks are twice slow cooked so that at least two days to prepare. We will advise the price per person at the time.
