AccommodationAll our rooms are ensuite and open out onto the wide verandah through French doors. A gourmet breakfast each morning is served featuring fresh free range eggs from our own hens.
Aire Valley RestaurantFresh ingredients is the main focus for the restaurant. Our fish and meats are locally sourced. Chef and Owner, Annabel Tunley has worked at Balmoral Castle in Scotland and the French influence of the menu comes from her time in Courchevel, France.
Our menu is kept small to ensure the ingredients are fresh. Enjoy a romantic candlelit dinner by the log fire in winter, and in summer, dining is on the verandah overlooking the lakes of the Great Ocean Road and the Aire River Wildlife Reserve, (sometimes known as our own African plain).
Aire Valley Restaurant MenuOur menu includes all the fresh ingredients from our garden and a selection of fresh fish. The menu can change on a daily basis depending on growth in the garden and what is fresh from our suppliers.
An excellent wine selection from local wines and
Victorian wines has been carefully selected to compliment
our restaurant menu.
The Aire Valley Restaurant GardenOur position on the Great Ocean Road provides a sheltered position perfect for an abundance of fruits, berries, vegetables and herbs. To be able to grow and then pick our kitchen produce daily gives our restaurant the freshest ingredients available along the Great Ocean Road. Seasonal changes along the coast means a wide range of ingredients can be grown at different times of year.
Our two gardeners, Wendy Hart and John Swain ensure the quality of the produce at all times in the restaurant garden.
Hordern Vale has one of the best climates in Victoria for growing vegetables, fruit and herbs
