New Spring menu blossoming at The Beacon

To celebrate the turn of the seasons, The Beacon is introducing a great value midweek Spring Set Menu, with lots of opportunities to enjoy wonderful new dishes. From Roast Chicken Ballotine with Garden Chutney to Heritage Beetroot risotto with Glazed Capricorn Goats Cheese. Also, for a limited time only, if you come in during the weekdays and when booking, quote ‘Love Spring’ and you will receive a free glass of wine alongside our Set Menu. So, starting tomorrow, come along and experience the blossoming views, with a glass of wine, and some great food.


Megs’ incredible brunch every day we hear you cry? Well, you’re in for a treat. The Twenty Six is currently undergoing a spring clean and a slight transformation to turn it into the go-to place for brunch. We’re going to be opening our doors 7 days a week and that means you can come and enjoy Megs’ inspiring and inventive dishes whenever you wish. Follow us on our facebookpage to find out more.


At Kingdom we have an extra soft spot for our four-legged guests, even the ones that can’t fit through the door! So while our customers are finding new ways of visiting us, we’re finding ways of striding forward and improving ourselves. We have a lot of exciting news coming in the near future, but starting this weekend, coinciding with St Patrick’s Day, we are going to be introducing our new Green Matcha Lattes! Packed with antioxidants, Matcha also helps to increase your metabolism, calms the mind, relaxes the body, increases your mood and aids in concentration; so not only is this a perfect excuse for an Instagram post, but also very good for you!

Let's do brunch

Fluffy chocolate pancakes with maple syrup and crème fraiche or what about chorizo baked beans and poached eggs? Or maybe cured salmon, beetroot jam and mixed seeds on rye toast is more to your liking. Sunday is a time to go for a walk through the woods, catch up with family, read the papers and have endless cups of coffee or even a glass of Mimosa or Bloody Mary. For the ultimate lazy Sunday, it’s no wonder brunch is so popular. The new brunch menu at The Twenty Six is served every Sunday from 10am to 2pm. Reservations open online.


The chocolate pancakes, fluffy and warm, with caramelised bananas and crème fraiche is already the most popular dish on the new brunch menu at The Twenty Six. Australian head chef Megan Buchanan shares her recipe. Expect to be popular at home!
