We begin with quality ingredients,
fresh and locally sourced wherever possible.

Then with some experience and imagination, we create our own unique recipes for mops and rubs, those magical additions give the meat its deep flavour and juicy texture. Cooked to perfection over hot embers, the result is food that looks, smells and tastes like nothing else. Click to expand our range of menu’s below, perfect for weddings, corporate and delivery.
