First time at Kinghams and I wish that we had found it years ago. Lovely setting, very good service and spectacular food. Overall the price was well worth the experience.

Very busy, not too long to wait for our courses so that was good. Short but varied menu and some fish specials- the skate wing had sold out before 8pm. Steak was good, but peripherals were expensive for what you get. We'll go back for...More

This isn't the company's website - this is tripadvisor. Call them up or go on their website and write an email. I am sure that they should be able to arrange something like though.
