Our commitment to providing amazing food in a beautiful setting will remain, but our Bistro is closing for casual dining. We will no longer offer lunch and dinner menus five days per week, but are introducing a range of dining experiences where bookings will be essential. 

Choose from The Social Pizza Night on selected Fridays, a sharing style menu focusing on our wood-fired pizzas. Or gather together a group of 20 or more, to enjoy our Grazing Menu for group bookings and functions. This includes a selection of wood-fired pizzas and delicious salads using organic produce from our veggie gardens, perfect for relaxed dining when riding the Trail.

For something extra special, our Paddock to Plate Dining Experience on Saturday evenings is a 4-course degustation menu. Sunday lunches will be a family style set menu.  We want to guarantee our food is made from scratch, and remains focused on our paddock to plate ethos. 

We continue to cater for functions, group bookings and weddings. The Falls Retreat also offer boutique accommodation.
