de gustibus aut bene, aut nihil

Food at the The Salopian Inn is eclectic – an edible story, if you like – of Karena’s culinary journey and her ever persistent need to learn more, eat more and cook more.

Autumn 2019

The Salopian Inn kitchen team loves to cook… and only with local, seasonal produce. We take great pride in our craft, making all that we offer from scratch.

For over four years we have been cultivating an organic kitchen garden at my home, with Maddie as its fearless gardener. The garden now provides a large percentage of fruit, vegetables and herbs for the restaurant. The seasons dictate what we cook to ensure the freshest and best quality ingredients. We only use pasture-fed, locally sourced beef and lamb, free range poultry and pork as well as Australian caught seafood.

We encourage you to put yourself in our hands: Our $80 pp tasting menu showcases our most-loved dishes. You will enjoy a selection of entrées, main courses and dessert. If there are some dishes you would like to try in particular, please just let us know.

Thank you for your custom,

Karena Armstrong & The Salopian Inn Team
