Eden & Essence have undergoing some exciting changes

Eden as a fine dining restaurant was closed on 4th March post the Earthquake of November 2016 as it was simply not viable to continue as a fine dining evening restaurant.

Since this time Eden has been going through some changes and we are now able to advise that Eden will be reopening as a Gourmet retreat, pantry and boutique accommodation offering from April 2017

Eden has been renamed Eden Retreat and from April 2017 will be available to be booked for private functions such as Hens Parties, Family celebrations, Birthdays, Group lunches and Afternoon teas. We will also from the weekend of Saturday 22nd April be opening our Pantry which will be open from 10am until 4pm on Saturday and Sundays. The pantry will stock our gorgeous French pastries, desserts, tarts, quiches, soups & light lunches as well as Devonshire cream teas and pre booked High Teas. You can dine in enjoying a glass of wine or coffee with our gourmet cabinet offerings and blackboard menu. The emphasis is on fresh creative French inspired bistro fare. Gorgeous chutneys, fruit pastes, sauces & local honey will be available for sale as well as a selection of French Cheeses and other picnic fare. Eden Retreat is now your gourmet food weekend destination.

Eden is also available for exclusive use private hire in the evening and includes our upstairs accommodation with two King rooms in a private apartment. When booking an evening group you must have use of the whole venue which includes the accommodation. Menus can be designed to suit the individual group.

Enquire now for your next function, corporate retreat or event.

Eden Retreat will honour all outstanding Eden Restaurant vouchers for redemption of any of the new products or offerings and will extend the expiry date for an additional 6 months from the date of expiry. No new vouchers will be sold or issued.

We look forward to seeing you soon!
