When you’re in the countryside, food takes on a new significance. We cater for all appetites and offer a range of tempting home-cooked dishes. Our food is freshly prepared, affordable, reflects the seasons and the weather. Come join us for one of our monthly jam sessions where local musicians and staff strike up the band accompanied by tasty treats.


To start off your day we have a wide range of healthy options that will prepare you for the top of the lake adventures. You can choose something as light as a toasted muesli with yoghurt and fruit or as hardy as a full English or full veggie breakfast.


There’s no better place for lunch than the deck at Kinloch Lodge. Visitors enjoying the scenic drive from Queenstown can enjoy scrumptious meals while drinking in the view. From our incredible wild venison stew to homemade soup and salad, there is something for everyone.

Afternoon Tea

If you fancy a morning coffee or afternoon tea, there is fresh baking available to have with a range of coffees and herbal teas, from a cappuccino to a Chai Latte.

Dinner – By Prior Reservation

Rustic high country home cooked fare is the order of the day in our restaurant. You are requested to pre-order your choices from the menu earlier in the day to ensure we have what you want. We focus on simple, hearty rustic dishes with local produce fitting for the end of an active day in the outdoors. Special needs diets can be catered for given advanced notice. Reservations are essential, as are pre-orders by 4 pm from our menu. Last minute walk-in options are available.

Catering for weddings and groups at Kinloch Lodge

We also offer a wonderful selection of group menus for weddings, corporate escapes and educational groups. Give us a call or write us for more information.
