Winter at Tweed River House – The Echo

Tweed River House sits on the banks of the Tweed and overlooks Wollumbin.

Winter dining at the Tweed River House will leave your senses warmly sated.

You can comfortably dine on the covered river terrace with its west facing hinterland and river views, capturing the afternoon sun, with radiant heating; or savor the indoor dining room with its open fireplace, chandeliers and pressed metal ceilings – the perfect place to dine.

Their winter menu is designed to recreate the great classics of new cuisine from the provinces of France. Each plate is an experience featuring different preparations of a star ingredient, infused with touches of native Australian flora and the exceptional produce the Tweed Caldera has to offer.

The private dining room is really something.

Some menu highlights are:
Slow-braised Bungalora pork with crispy crackers, parsnips, muntries, pickled red cabbage and Dijon mustard.

Confit rabbit croquette, rabbit juice, Jerusalem artichoke, pancetta and sage lentils, Davidson plum and sauerkraut

Elgin Valley free-range chicken breast, bunya and riberry nut press, white onion puree, marinated Urilup pioppinos, potato confit, pancetta crumble and Lyonnaise sauce.

McAuleys Road rumsteef pink, bourguignon and potato terrine, sautéed Urliup mushrooms, bordelaise, shallot port and quandong.

Seafood chowder with locally sourced cuttlefish, Ballina pipis, mussels, fish, cream, vegetables, native leaves.

Roasted celeriac, myrtle oil, braised Urliup mushrooms, onion textures and truffle jus.

To complete the meal, why not try their new Chocolate St Honoré dessert – dark chocolate acacia mousse, blueberry white chocolate mousse, strawberry gum and milk chocolate profiterole, caramel tuile and coulis of blueberry.

Winter is also the perfect time to treat yourself to their five- or nine-course tasting menus.

For a special occasion, why not celebrate with your loved ones and dine in the Private Chandelier Dining Room, which seats up to ten people and comes complete with a private butler, fine linens and crystalware.
