Dining at the Step House Hotel is a truly unforgettable experience. The exquisitely crafted menus are designed to benefit from local produce emphasising our commitment to organic foods.


Our head chef Alan Foley & his team are committed to a philosophy of quality food sourcing, with an emphasis on seasonal, local and artisan ingredients. They keep the art of real cooking alive, preparing dishes from scratch with the best ingredients, to bring you real taste and real value. Supporting local producers is at the heart of the Step House where whole lambs are bought off local farmers.
