Winter Hosted Dinners
(By prior arrangement only, Table d'hote)
Our Hosted Dinners are very popular with our guests (see our reviews on TripAdvisor).
We select the very best seasonal produce to showcase our Lodge's, and New Zealand's, fabulous food & wine.
Canapés of the Day are served in the Guest Lounge on cool Winter evenings, beside the log fire,
with your choice of fine NZ wine or a local craft beer.
The Main Course might be a stunning side of fresh Bluff Salmon, hot-smoked with a Whisky & Manuka Marinade or
locally-grown Beef Eye Fillet or perfectly grilled Hawkes' Bay Lamb Rump served with a Red Wine Jus.
Taupo's Pasta Mia Leek & Walnut Tortelli with our Harvest Tomato Sauce delights our vegetarian guests.
The main course is accompanied by lodge-grown Agria Potato Dauphinoise & fresh vegetable side dish.
A NZ wine to suit the dish, or your palate, will be served.
Desserts are a real highlight for many and include home-made classics such as
Molten Chocolate Pots with Cream or Vanilla Bean Ice Cream (GF available)
Lodge-grown Apple or Rhubarb Crumble with Cream or Vanilla Bean Ice Cream (GF available)
Passionfruit & Lemon Delicious Pudding with Cream (GF available)
A NZ dessert wine (sticky!) will be served.
Webster's Organic Tea, Volcanic Roasters Coffee or Hot Chocolate to follow with
Angie's delicious Home-made Chocolate Truffles.
