We love sharing food and meeting new people and hope that our menu stimulates great conversations and fosters new relationships between your guests. Please read and review our booking terms and conditions and don't hesitate to get in touch if you have any questions.

 

About your booking

 

  • Unless otherwise stated, all prices are excluding Goods and Services Tax (GST).

  • We have a minimum spend of $350+GST.

  • There is a minimum order of 12 units per item - for example: 12 x Kangaroo Sausage Rolls. 

  • Bookings must be confirmed a minimum of 5 business days before the event – this includes final number of guests, quantities and prices.

  • Once an event is confirmed a quote will be issued.

  • In the event that bookings are confirmed closer to the scheduled event date, changes to the menu may need to be made as it can be difficult to source the necessary ingredients.

  • Once the event has been confirmed, minor changes to the number of guests and dietary requirements can be made. These changes will be charged on your final invoice.

  • Orders received within 72 hours will be charged a late booking fee of $60.

  • We cannot make any changes 48 hours prior to the event.

  • Platters and equipment loaned as part of the service will be collected the next business day. Please ensure these are washed.

  • In the event that your function requires a chef or serving staff, rates will be set out in the quote. If these hours change on the day – with staff required to work more / less hours – the final invoice will be adjusted accordingly.

 

Payment

 

  • An invoice for the event will be issued when the event is confirmed.

  • Invoices must be paid by the event date unless confirmed otherwise.

Cancellation

 

  • All cancellations are required in writing.

  • Events cancelled within five business days, for any reason, will be liable for the full invoice amount.

 

Indigenous Ingredients

 

  • The supply chain for Indigenous ingredients can be unreliable. As such, we may not be able to source the specific ingredient for a quoted menu item. In the event that one of our suppliers cannot provide the ingredient, we will notify you no less than three days prior to the event to confirm a substitute.

 

Allergic Reactions

 

  • We cannot guarantee that any produce on our menu is totally free from nuts, nut derivatives or other ingredients to which guests may have a serious allergic reaction as we cannot operate in a nut free environment. We would therefore advise guests with a severe allergy to nuts or other ingredients to talk to us directly to arrange an alternative to the chosen meal.
