Tweed River House sits on the banks of the Tweed looking across to Wollumbin.

Wintertime dining at the Tweed River House will leave your senses warmly satiated.

You can dine in comfort either on the covered River Terrace with its sweeping west facing hinterland and river views, capturing the afternoon sun, with radiant heating; or savour the inside dining room with its open fireplace, chandeliers, and pressed metal ceilings – the perfect place for dinner.

Their winter menu is designed to recreate the great nouvelle cuisine classics of the provinces of France. Every plate is an experience showcasing different preparations of a star ingredient, infused with touches of native Australian flora and the outstanding produce the Tweed Caldera has to offer.

The Private Dining Room is really quite something.

Some menu highlights are:
  Slow braised Bungalora Pork with crisp crackling, parsnip, muntries, pickled red cabbage and mustard de Dijon.

  Confit Rabbit croquette, with rabbit jus, Jerusalem artichoke, pancetta and sage lentils, Davidson plum and sauerkraut

  Free range Elgin Valley chicken breast, bunya nut & riberry presse, white onion puree, pickled Urilup pioppinos, confit potato, pancetta crumble and lyonnaise sauce.

  McAuleys Road pink rump beef, bourguignon and potato terrine, sautéed Urliup mushrooms, bordelaise, port shallot and quandong.

  Seafood chowder with locally sourced cuttlefish, Ballina pipis, mussels, fish, cream, vegetables, native leaves.

  Roasted celeriac, myrtle oil, braised Urliup mushrooms, onion textures and truffle jus.

To complete the meal, why not try their new Chocolate St Honore dessert – dark chocolate wattle mousse, white chocolate riberry mousse, strawberry gum and milk chocolate profiterole, caramel tuile and riberry coulis.

Winter is also the perfect time to treat yourself to their leisurely five, or nine course degustation menus. 

For a special occasion why not celebrate with your closest ones and dine in the Private Chandelier Dining Room, which seats up to ten and comes with a private butler, fine linens and crystalware.
