Our Food Philosophy

Kinloch Manor has been created by the much-awarded owners of Treetops Lodge & Estate, and offers truly exceptional dining overlooking Lake Taupo and beyond.


Importantly the restaurant uses near 100% pesticide and organic produce (where appropriate), with farm and garden reared produce of their own, plus the private 2,000 ha nearby owner’s property that adheres to the ‘Estate to Plate’ dining philosophy - of course matched with New Zealand and the world’s best wines.


Guests are encouraged to try Kinloch’s own garden produce, being able to respectfully pick what they wish to taste. Menus include, our own Manuka honey from lodge aviaries producing wild native comb honey of exceptional flavour, heritage varieties of indigenous and seasonal vegetables; native spinach (tetragonia), kumara, fresh turmeric, wasabi, native cress, plus sister estate or regionally sourced reared wild deer; red, fallow, sika, wapiti (elk) and water buffalo, wild pig, sheep, rabbit, pheasant, partridge, geese, duck, rainbow, and brown trout. Guest’s own catch of Rainbow and Brown trout will always be prepared – and of cause Ora King Salmon is regularly on the menu.
