THE DINING ROOM

At Leeu Estates

Guests staying at any of our Leeu Collection properties can look forward to an avant-garde approach to a list of favourite novelty dishes.

From our gardens to your plate our chefs use the seasons as their inspiration while preparing food full of flavour, with many of the ingredients coming from the Leeu Locally Grown (#LeeuLocallyGrown?) vegetable gardens and orchards where daily harvesting ensures an element of wholesome freshness.

Leisurely meals and fine vintages within the Mullineux and Leeu Family Wines and Great Heart Wines range from the cellar can be enjoyed in The Dining Room, Conservatory and The Deck.
