Catering

Your first and probably most cost effective option is to self-cater. Most groups hiring the whole retreat use the East Lodge kitchen as a main base. The butlers pantry allows storage of bulk food items and bulk crockery if need be. Twin ovens and 6 burner gas stove allows for high volume cooking. We can provide double appliances where need be, such as rice cookers, slow cookers etc (perfect for curry or soup nights). Most groups choose to have a pizza night – with roll your own pizza base and make your own pizza a great laugh and bonding activity for groups.

 

The second option is to choose to have your group retreat catered with beautiful meals. Our caterer drops and sets up meals – mostly leaving them for you to put finishing touches to, and serve. We’ve provided a sample menu and indicative prices, although prices are obviously specifically dependent on seasonal costs, guest numbers, specific menu requests and dietary requirements. Hopefully the sample menu and indicative prices help provide you a costing guide for putting together your deluxe retreat. If you want more information, please talk to us when making your booking request.
