  • Victorian Game Dinner

    $250.00 per person

    Prepaid

    30 July 2024 only
    This a one off dinner inspired by a discussion while out on a deer stalk in the Victorian Alps with chef and author Ross O'Meara. Team members Cameron Earl and Andrew Joy were amazed to experience the level of knowledge that Ross had for Victorian game and hunting in general and decided it would be a good idea to put together a dinner to celebrate this wild produce. There will be 20 seats available and tickets will be $250 per head with matched wines.

    My friend and I shared 4 starters and had a main course each. It was lunch so we drank wine by the glass. Everything was excellent.

    We enjoyed our first experience at the CWR and thank the excellent staff member who attended to us. Duck was beautiful but not rendered well. The pumpkin itself was very bland and stringy, although the sauce and extras with it were nice. When booking in winter, ask to sit away from the front door otherwise you will freeze every time the door opens, which is very often. Otherwise, it has a lovely menu, experienced staff, great wine selection and lively ambiance.

    We enjoyed a lovely early birthday celebration here. From the moment you walk in to be greeted and shown to your table you know that you’re in good hands. The service, food, wine and ambience were all just lovely. Will definitely be back.
