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.

well-matched wine alongside it. We offer wine pairing suggestions on the menu for this reason; to enhance the dining experience.

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.
