The Lodge at Cradle Forest Inn is built with spectacular local timber and stone, and features a picture-postcard exterior and a cosy fire warmed interior in winter. It is home to our fully licensed restaurant, The Deck, and lounge area, all designed to enhance your dining and drinking experience.
Our restaurant has become a favourite amongst guests, locals and visitors to the Cradle Mountain region. Offering great value dining combined with country hospitality, Feathers Bistro is the perfect place to enjoy a sumptuous meal or a snack. Specialising in mouth-watering wood-fired pizzas and Texas Smoked BBQ, our menu is sure to tempt you. Complement your delicious meal at Feathers Bistro with one of our famous local Tasmanian wines or beers.
Our restaurant offers a cooked breakfast between 8am and 11am, with all other meals served between 11am and 8pm. Whether it’s a hearty meal or something light and casual, you can’t go past our restaurant where you can relax and enjoy good food and wine. Food and service is our passion.
In summer, The Deck is ideal for alfresco dining and a relaxing drink. It is the perfect setting to soak up the sun, catch up with friends and enjoy a delicious lunch with a beer or a local Tasmanian wine. For something light, try our delicious share plates, hot or cold tasty snacks, or freshly brewed coffee and cake. Enjoy stunning forest views and a mouth-watering pizza from our wood-fired pizza oven or American Style ribs. Linger on The Deck as the sun sets over the mountain and enjoy the relaxed ambiance of The Deck with a cocktail or beer.
The lounge is a perfect spot to enjoy a quiet drink and conversation with friends all year round. In winter, our log fire provides warmth and the perfect ambiance for your get together. Sit beside the fire and feel its warmth while enjoying a glass of mulled wine or a steaming cup of roasted coffee on a snowy winter’s day. In summer, you can take in the scenic forest views through our full length windows in the restaurant, while enjoying a refreshing drink from the bar or a freshly brewed coffee.
