Arrowtown has a Winery and a Cheesery. Now, a Dishery. The Dishery.... is a place of many dishes.
Owned and operated by Scott and Emily Stevens, The Dishery is Bistro dining at its best with a breakfast, lunch and afternoon grazing menu lovingly designed by executive chef Ainsley Thompson and served from 8am to 6pm. Specialising in locally sourced fresh food and wine in a garden seating adjacent to the beautiful Arrow River Reserve.
Since the 1860s, the Dudley’s Cottage Precinct has been a hive of social activity. Hungry and thirsty gold miners came down from the Arrow Gorge goldfields to the edge of Arrowtown to trade their gold finds for basic human comforts. Food, drink, shelter, warmth, companionship.
Back in those days, the pan you worked the goldfields with was also the dish you ate from. In fact a gold pan was simply called a dish. The most valued of possessions.
The Dishery is a place of many dishes, the utopia those early adventurers were seeking.
