Choose from a variety of dining spaces. Private dining can be arranged on request.

Our Culinary team always aim to source produce as locally as possible, and with an idyllic Hawke’s Bay location, their “food miles” have been relatively few. Now with the Cape Kidnappers' vegetable garden in place and its close proximity to the lodge, our chefs are able to create daily menus based on what is freshest, utilising many vegetables straight from the garden and offering the most seasonal produce to our guests. Depending on the season we have a wide variety of different vegetables growing and we would be delighted to show you through.

We pride ourselves on making as much as we can on site. Our Pastry Chef makes everything from scratch here at The Farm – from cereals, cookies, breads, jams, exquisite pastries to ice cream. Our chocolate chip cookies are gaining legendary status, and the smell of melting chocolate wafting from the kitchen means our chefs are making one of their wonderful desserts for the night’s dinner menu.


Breakfast at our luxury New Zealand lodge is served from 7.00am to 10.30am and features a buffet of local and imported fruits, home-made muesli and cereals, yoghurts and freshly baked pastries. In addition, a hot menu featuring eggs, pancakes, crisp New Zealand bacon, ham and sausages and more may be ordered.


Lunch is served from 12.00pm to 3.00pm in the Lodge dining area. The Lodge lunch menu offers an extensive variety of dishes, ranging from sandwiches to three course lunches. The Clubhouse offers a small selection of light options. Sandwiches to eat between nines can be ordered prior to tee-off at the Clubhouse. Lunch is not included in the tariff, but can be charged directly to your suite account. Room Service to your luxury accommodation is available on request.


The complimentary cocktail hour begins at 6.30pm. Hot and cold hors d’oeuvres and a wide range of wines, beer and spirits are served.


Dinner is served from 6.30pm to 9.30pm. Our dinner menu changes nightly and features the finest New Zealand lamb and beef, as well as the best local produce and seafood. Wine and bottled water served with dinner are not included in the daily tariff. During cocktails and dinner, gentlemen are required to wear a jacket (the Lodge has jackets available for guest use at Reception).


Our property has an abundance of wonderful picnic sites. We offer a choice of picnic lunches from an activity pack, simple boxed lunch or a delicious gourmet picnic. Please speak to Reception for picnic requests.
