Food Philosophy

Food and Dining

Our kitchen staff provide healthy and delicious meal options using locally sourced, organic where possible, and in-season ingredients. You can always be assured that your meal has been made with the environment and your well-being in mind. Our kitchen provides a nut-free environment, with options for omnivores, gluten-free and vegan diets. We strive to provide options to suit individuals’ dietary needs.

Our food and dining offerings:

  • Daily meal service at set times for Breakfast, Lunch and Dinner served from the Whale Room
  • Locally sourced, artisan take away picnics ready to bring with you on a day trip or to enjoy at the beach or on your deck
  • Hikers’ packed lunches – for those heading into the mountains where light weight and higher calories are essentials.

In order to prepare without waste, reservations are strongly encouraged.  Picnics and packed lunches must be booked by 6 pm on the day prior.

The Whale Room is open annually from early April until late October. 

The food in the dining hall cannot be beat. The organic, locally sourced presentations have been the highlight of every trip I’ve taken to SPL. Whether the regular fare for the guests or the specially prepared meals for our teams it gets rave reviews. I can honestly say I’ve never had a meal I didn’t think was 5 star. For the teams SPL was very accommodating working with our managers to provide the additional calories needed for hard working athletes.
