Talisker's Meals

Our guests tell us that our meals are excellent "New Zealand Country Homestay". As far as possible we use home or at least locally grown produce. We source our meat from Southland's top butchery. Cheeses are from "Whitestone" or "Evansdale". We have included the following menu as an indication of what guests choosing the "fully serviced" or "stored" may expect. Menus will vary depending on season of the year and produce availability. 

Please note that we do NOT have a liquor licence. 
We are happy for guests to BYO.
