Our menu changes with the season and is inspired by the produce we grow. All of our food is cooked fresh to order by our team of Chef's who take pride in producing delicious homemade meals.

The Kitchen is modern and fitted with top of the range cooking equipment. It is a very fast paced service kitchen creating dishes for the 150 seat Farmer’s Kitchen restaurant. The team are passionate about providing a customer experience that is different with exceptional service and food.
