About Us

Our long experience in the hospitality business means we know a thing or two about putting on a great event. You can be assured the people you deal with at the start of your enquiry are the same people right up until your event is complete.

We cater for up to 60 guests stand-up or between 8 to 25 guests for a sit down menu.

With over 30 years experience operating restaurants and private catering in Melbourne, Sydney and country Victoria, Andrew loves creating really good food. We work with you to design your menu or leave the menu to us to develop according to your preferences.

All food is prepared fresh on the premises, and wherever possible, we use local fresh ingredients. Andrew, a qualified chef, has a background in European techniques when it comes to preparing food, with specialities including seafood, provincial French fare, canapes, charceuterie, game, seasonal ingredients, desserts, food and wine pairing. We are able to cater to particular dietary requirements.

We are fully licensed with an extensive and eclectic wine list to cater for all tastes. Whether it is a luncheon, a sumptuous feast at your private dinner party, or a champagne buffet we can assist you to match your wines with food. Using our existing wine lists and contact with a diversified range of suppliers, we can assist you to select boutique local and imported wines to compliment your menu.

The property is available mornings, afternoons and evenings. For a ceremony/special celebration you can choose a two hour minimum. Available to hire for photo shoot only or photos/finger food and refreshments. For a wedding ceremony or small event we will quote on a six hour duration within the quoted minimum spend (food and beverage inclusive) or discuss with us your particular time frame. Corporate and other specialised events can be quoted on as a package once we understand your specific requirements.

Janet, an experienced event organiser, understands that it is your event and can assist you to take the stress out of the planning. Our experience, attention to detail and ability to really listen to you means you can relax. Talk to us about the bits you feel less confident in arranging. We can help you to stylise a special event to make it a memorable and successful one for you.

We can assist you with: food and beverage ideas, technical and logistical elements, invitations, scheduling and running sheets, transportation, recommending speakers or entertainers, arranging décor, table linen, flowers, marquee and furniture hire. We have a list of people and companies who we would trust (and often do) with our own celebrations. You don’t have to use our suppliers, but we can recommend them

Alternatively you may relish the opportunity to do it all yourselves. We are flexible and happy to help where required.

We understand that budgets are important, but so is great food and wine. By limiting our functions to 60 guests for a private stand-up canapes/buffet style function or a sit down menu from 8 to 25 guests, we can offer to tailor our menu and venue to suit your wishes.

Our rates are fully inclusive for exclusive use of the property, food and beverage. The property is available for exclusive use between the hours 7am - midnight 7 days a week.

We pride ourselves on attention to detail, to make every celebration a personalised one.
