Catering for guests and wine tasting

8.00–9.30 am BREAKFAST – served in the bistro/cellar door (if you choose to have it) any day of the week, a short walk from the accommodation. Start with yoghurt and fruit, followed by a cooked breakfast. There is no menu; you get to eat what we serve. Enjoy all the tea or coffee you can drink. Our breakfast is exceptionally good value at $25 a person.

11.30–3 pm LUNCH – served in the bistro/cellar door during its weekend/public holiday opening hours; à la carte menu.

6.00–7.00 pm (commencement of meal) DINNER – served in the bistro/cellar door on Tuesday to Saturday nights, so long as you let us know. (On week nights we need to be notified at least a day in advance.) Choose from an à la carte menu.

At night you are most likely to be the only diners. If this is problem and you want a more social ambience, there are many restaurants in Canberra and its region. Alternatively, we can provide platters to eat in the privacy of your apartment, any day of the week.

Wine tastings are available for guests only on Friday, Saturday and Sunday. We do not provide tastings mid-week.
