Menus

We have a range of delicious menus to suit any budget or tastes: Grazing tables, canapes and all the favourites. 

Start with arrival platters of cheeses, Italian meats, hot smoked salmon, oysters, and fresh sushi. 

Follow with hors d'oeuvres and walk & fork options for cocktail and canapé events. To save time and stress, we also have pre-selected food packages based on popular choices.

If you would prefer a sit down meal, choose from 2 or 3 course lunch or dinner menus, with service styles including buffet, shared plates, or individually plated.

All our menus cater to main dietary requirements—vegan, vegetarian, gluten-free, dairy-free, and nut-free, so let your taste buds decide.

We offer a seasonally changing wine and cocktail menu, complemented by a full bar with a variety of tap beers, wines, shots and cocktails.

We can set up the bar in any way you want, either: 

  • Open 'cash bar' 

  • Arrival drinks only 

  • Subsidised drinks where guests pay half

  • Set drink limits

  • Reduced drink offering with a bar TAB. 

You choose the drinks for the TAB, and we create a custom menu for each event, complete with images, logos, or personalised cocktail names.

Our team is delighted to craft bespoke cocktails tailored to your event or theme. We also offer a $16 mini cocktail list, so you can offer cocktails without the usual price tag.
