“Garden-to-table” is the essence of the food offering at Te Arai Lodge, using organic produce grown on the estate complemented with fresh local produce, line-caught fish from Leigh, organic free-range chicken, grass fed-beef and more.

The style of cuisine at Te Arai Lodge is crafted around the seasonality and freshness of the produce, letting the natural flavours tell the story… tantalising entrées, memorable meals, mouth-watering desserts and experiences to last a lifetime.

The “Shared Dining” evening meal experience invites guests to join with the Moores family and fellow guests.

Guests can choose to source produce from the gardens with the chef, to observe or partake in the finishing touches of the offerings or to simply relax by the open fire on the terrace with a drink, to then be invited to share a communal table for dining.

Alternatively, guests can choose a “Private Dining” experience and have the various courses of their meal served in a location of their choice around the property.

Breakfast is served buffet style, together with a choice of hot dishes cooked to order. Again, guests have the option of shared or private dining locations.
