Our Food philosophy 

At Makoura Lodge, our food philosophy is about eating fresh, wholesome and plentiful food. We grow most of our own vegetables and herbs, to ensure they are free from chemical sprays and are picked fresh. If we can't produce it ourselves we buy local.

We grew up on good, country food and there was always plenty for seconds! We wish to share our honest, country cuisine with you and we promise you will not go home hungry.

We are happy to cater to suit dietary needs. Please let us know your meal choice 10 days before your function alongside names of guests that have dietary requirements. 

For the kids; kids under 5 years of age dine free, under 12 years the meal is half price. Please enquire for alternate food options for children.

Please talk to us about options if your group size fits below the minimum number required.
