Cupitt’s Kitchen

Cupitt’s Kitchen is the highlight of any visit to Cupitt’s Estate and the South Coast. The dining space is open and bright with floor-to-ceiling windows that allow guests to drink in the breathtaking views of the estate, Burrill Lake and the Budawang mountain ranges.

We’ve been consistently awarded since opening in 2007, this is because we offer a warm and relaxing dining experience with seasonal local and estate-grown produce.  At Cupitt’s food is celebrated for its conviviality and the joyfulness of sharing seasonal produce. Our cooking is heartfelt, wholesome, produce driven, and cooked by a team of people who are passionate about what they do and who feel truly privileged to work with beautiful ingredients.

It is our view, that nothing lifts a good plate of food as much as
well matched wine alongside it. We offer wine pairing suggestions on the menu for this reason; to enhance the dining experience.

Please note, only one bill per table and please advise our staff regarding allergies or dietary needs prior to ordering from our menu.

If you are looking for a light lunch or a casual drink, then our outdoor Budawang Bar is perfect for you.  Simply relax on the sunny deck or stretch out on the lawns, and take in the view while you enjoy a Cupitt Craft Brewer’s beer, Cupitt wine or one of our signature Garden to Glass Cocktails.

Cornish scones, Ploughman’s platters, and Cupitt’s Fromagerie cheese boards are available. On the weekends (and mid-week Jan school holidays) we also fire up the wood-fired pizza oven and have a few more hot dishes available to choose from.

Live music every Sunday of the year makes the Budawang Bar the perfect spot for a catch up with friends and extend the weekend.  We like to keep it casual, so bookings are not required.  However, please contact us if you are getting a larger group together as bookings are available only for groups over 10 people and a deposit is required for our casual area/menu. Seating for this is on the lawn area outside.

Russell Chinn

Russell Chinn has been the chef at Cupitt’s Kitchen since 2010. Classically trained in French cooking, Russell has worked at top UK restaurants, including The Waterside Inn (3 Michelin Stars) under Michel Roux, and The Greenhouse. He describes his style as ‘elegantly rustic’, focusing on fresh, local and seasonal produce to create full flavours with French/English influence.

Sustainability in the Kitchen

The restaurant follows the farm-to-table philosophy.  We engaged experts in the permaculture and organic farming to design, maintain and grow our garden.

We believe that by producing as much as we can on site that we reduce our environmental footprint of the food supply chain. Cupitts produces beef, cheese, fruits, vegetables, herbs on site.

Our Chefs work with our gardeners to plan the menu giving time to plant the crops needed for the upcoming menu.

“Great food. Wonderful view”

We went for dinner which is not the best time as you can’t see the wonderful view over the vines, river and valley. The staff were warm and professional. Their wine was not marked up outrageously and very fine! It is cheap for the quality of the food and service – two course for two people, plus wine cost us less than a few drinks for three people at a bar in Sydney the night before. I had one of the best steaks – tender and tasty, though I was not in love with the ‘smoky’ mash the rest of the night outweighed that small quibble.

The room decor is a bit old fashioned but it is a place for lunch and the view makes the decor irrelevant. Very strongly recommended.
