The Macedon Ranges is known for its outstanding food and wine, with a huge selection of restaurants and cafes across the region. While we are spoilt for choice when it comes to eating out, sometimes we would prefer to stay in. Luckily, we also have some excellent options for restaurant-quality takeaway and take-home meals. Why not light the fire, grab a bottle of wine and enjoy some beautiful local cuisine in the comfort of your own home (or holiday home). At Lawson Lodge, we can also arrange catering to be delivered and stocked in the fridge ready for your arrival. Ask us about this service with your next booking.
