About Max

Cafe Max Foster – named after our beloved Max, a gentle old boy who meets and greets the Lodge guests, then gently slips away during service but lives for his breakfast!   As the aromas float from the kitchen day in and out, Max’s nose rises and falls to catch the scent as it drifts by. He never moves from his post – its winter and he’s next to the log fire.

Our vision for a Cafe emerged as guests became more and more wanting of great coffee.  It quickly moved into towards great food, at the time breakfast was our focus.  Then the winter arrived and guests asked for dinner and if possible room service.  One thing lead to another …  as it does !

We are now a team of eight.  All passionate about eating good food and a few who actually have both the passion and talent to deliver excellent food.
