Food & Wine
Lime Tree Lodge hosts, Pauline and John, have excellent credentials when it comes to crafting fresh and tasty fare from the very best in local produce.
Living on a remote high country station, subject to the vagaries of snow and weather and far from the local store, has meant Pauline is adept at maintaining a well-stocked pantry – provisioned with a select range of quality, ‘home-made’, ‘home-grown’ and artisan products – from which delicious treats can be whisked up, whatever the occasion!
Guests of Lime Tree Lodge will enjoy hearty breakfasts including...
"fresh fruit; home-bottled stone-fruits (grown in nearby Cromwell, the 'fruit bowl' of New Zealand), home-made muesli, marmalade chutneys & preserves; local honey, bacon, gourmet sausages and free range eggs from their own hens; freshly ground plunger or espresso coffee and an extensive range of Harney & Sons Fine Teas.
Complimentary aperitifs, including hand-made cheeses...
home-made pates and local delicacies such as whitebait fritters, local river salmon and Bluff oysters, are also a Lodge speciality, enjoyed with fine central Otago wines and the Lodge's own Vodka lime gimlets, made with freshly squeezed lime juice.
For something quite memorable, enjoy a lavish 3-course dinner...
