Here are 3 of our favourites:
The Barn
The Barn is a beautiful reception venue located 2km from Eagle’s Rest. Outstanding food and service
Valla Manor
Valla Manor is a longstanding local favourite, with full service catering and seaside views.
Meredith’s is a pricier option but well worth the extra expense. Food and service is best in class.
