Dishes made with locally sourced ingredients

We favour home grown and local flavours wherever possible and so our menu has been specially created to celebrate the finest ingredients that have made a short journey from source to your fork (some so short it’s just walking to the garden and back!).

We work hard to reduce our food miles and we are proud to have some fantastic local specialities on our menus! And it doesn’t just stop at the food; at Mont Rochelle we are in a unique position to be able to serve a wide range of high quality wines from our very own vineyard. We’re all about footprints in the sand and not in carbon, so when you dine with us you can rest assured the food is sourced locally and responsibly.
