A ritual fit for royalty
At The Old Government House, we are proud to offer a collection of extraordinary experiences, exclusively curated with our treasured local partners, that explore our spectacular surroundings and showcase our food and drink partners.
Our Executive Chef Daniel Putz and his team make their mark, serving fine cuisine with an accent on modern British dishes. They balance their natural creativity with a superb collection of traditional comfort foods (organic and wherever possible, locally sourced).
From the Stables Bar which once housed the building’s horses, today a cosy nook with the feel of a well-loved gentleman’s club, to the Oratory, the original wood-panelled chapel, now a romantic, intimate dining space, to the stylishly monochrome Conservatory, our settings have a refined, welcoming and storied feel.
With over 300 wines, personally selected by our Head Sommelier, we showcase a superb selection of the established names of the Old World, the time-honoured Clarets and Burgundies, the majestic wines of Italy and Spain, the immaculate vintages that bear such magical names as Montrachet and d’Yquem. Add to these an equally fine representation of the great New World wines that have become classics in their own right, and you arrive at a cellar full of splendour for anyone wishing to sample the loftiest peaks of wine making. We are also proud to offer a collection of exceptional wines from our sister vineyard Bouchard Finlayson.
