Dining at Delamore Lodge

Food and wine is a key feature of the Delamore Lodge experience.

‘Fresh’ is Delamore’s theme. Executive chef, Aaron Smith, is inspired daily by what is homegrown and harvested locally and with the abundance of fish from the rich local waters makes your dining an even more memorable experience.

Delamore Lodge also has its own gardens, and citrus trees, enabling them to gather together the freshest produce for your table.

At Delamore Lodge you can enjoy an individually tailored five-course dinner. It’s a must, on at least one evening to experience dinner at Delamore. Our chef can even prepare your fresh catch if you have spent the day fishing. The lodge’s wine cellar features a wide range of local award-winning wines for you to choose from.

Gourmet breakfasts are tailored to your individual tastes and can be served in the indoor or outdoor area of the lodge,   or perhaps you would prefer in the privacy of your guest suite, either choice, you will not miss out on the stunning view of the Hauraki Gulf. Or if you wish to stay in, our chef can prepare a  lunch platter for two.

For a leisurely lunch, or another night of dining – you can experience fine food at quality restaurants or vineyard, such as Mudbrick Restaurant and Vineyard,  Cable Bay VineyardTe Whau Restaurant and Stonyridge Vineyard, there are many more casual venues to choose from. These can be booked for you by the staff at Delamore – don’t worry about getting there, they will arrange that too!

In the evening you can join your hosts and other guests for complimentary pre-dinner drinks and hors d’oeuvres before dining in at Delamore or dining out at another venue.

Tea, coffee, home baked biscuits and slices, are made available to you throughout the day.

You will never go hungry at Delamore!
