FOOD: European/ New Zealand cuisine with a few other infusions, from Eggs Benedict to New Zealand beef steak. We have the comfort food with a bit of finesse to your liking.

TEA: We serve only the best and what better than the Dilmah range all served in the special Dilmah glasses and each coming with their very own hourglass for the perfect brewing time. With flavours such as Elderflower and Apple infusion, Blood Orange and Eucalyptus and Springtime Chocolate Mint you have no excuse to come and enjoy a great cup of tea.
