Kangaroo Island Food Specialists – Hannaford and Sachs

Gourmet Island Dining


Gourmet Island Dining specialists Hannaford & Sachs have created two special
pop-up dining events this season, inspiring a true sense of place and produce
– the best of Kangaroo Island dining in one location at Middle River.


December 1 – June 30

Dine in style with nature in a restaurant made from sugar gum trees. The Hannaford family’s 150-year-old shearing shed, built from sugar gum trees and old corrugated iron. Chef Rachel Hannaford will treat you to an 8 course tasting menu inspired by her Island home and an impressive selection of Kangaroo Island produce and wines. Enjoy a pre lunch game of croquet if you choose.

Shearing Shed – Lunch Wednesday to Sunday
12 noon and 1pm sittings 

  • 8 course Tasting menu featuring sumptuous Kangaroo Island produce
  • See full menu here. (Please advise dietary requirements)
  • Price $65 + drinks
  • Full bar available, featuring Kangaroo Island wines.  Sorry, no BYO



Or Call 08 85592236


December 1 – April 30

Step into a fairytale, where you dine beneath the boughs, embraced by the leaves of an ancient fig tree planted by the early settlers. Over many years, the gnarled branches have touched the ground to grow again, forming enchanting rooms with ceilings of swaying leaves and dappled light. This unique dining experience is seasonal from December to April, before the leaves start to fall.

Enchanted Fig Tree – Lunch Wednesday to Sunday
12 noon and 2.30pm sittings 

  • Banquet-style menu featuring seasonal Kangaroo Island produce
    See full menu here. (Please advise dietary requirements)
  • $95 per person
  • Full bar available, featuring Kangaroo Island wines. Sorry, no BYO

Limited numbers – BOOKINGS ESSENTIAL.

On the way to or from our event we recommend you visit our selected island partners below who provide other quality food and island experiences.

Fresh from the garden and sealed with a kis! Join Island food adventurer Tony Nolan and KIS (Kangaroo Island Spirits) distiller Jon Lark for an agrarian dining adventure at Tony’s sheep and cattle farm. Pick vegetables from the garden, sample farm meats and learn the secrets behind making gin and pairing it with some of the best Kangaroo Island produce.

We all know food is about more than nutrition. It is enhanced by good company, a great setting and of course a great story:  in other words, a complete experience. Award-winning local tour operator Exceptional Kangaroo Island is the expert. Meet the producers, enjoy private wine tasting, close-and-personal wildlife encounters or a clifftop picnic. www.exceptionalkangarooisland.com
