Surrounding you with all the charms expected of an alpine lodge and wooing with the Peppers’ touch, retreat to Highland Restaurant in the Central Lodge for a premier Tasmanian restaurant experience. Recognised for featuring Tasmania’s world renowned fresh produce and wines, be sure to linger and spend time spoiling the senses in comfort. Warmth oozes from a collection of cosy furnishings, fireplace and flickering candles in the sophisticated restaurant area. In the Guest Bar & Lounge, a statement stone fireplace crackles away that complements pre-dinner drinks with a mesmerising glow. After mingling with other guests, perhaps enjoy a glass of wine, or take a wander into the Wine Cellar and choose a bottle to suit your occasion and feast. Following a paddock to plate philosophy, Highland Restaurant sources produce almost entirely within a 160km range, showcasing the region and ensuring dishes are always prepared to a high standard.
