You asked, we listened! Back by popular demand. It’s time our Ponder brothers get back in the kitchen together and go head-to-head to battle it out for 2023! This event is ALWAYS a quick sell out, so don’t ponder….

With a SIX course dinner and a battle on our hands, it’s a night you do not want to miss.


$50pp for wine matching

Freddie, the award-winning chef from Shining Peak Brewery and Richard our very own executive head chef, degustation extraordinare AND winning champ from 2022 are busy working on their degustation battle menu, to showcase three dishes each, during this head-to-head battle for the fourth year running! With Freddie taking the crown for the 2020 + 2021, Richard stole the crown last year and Freddie is fired up and ready to re battle!

YOU decide who wins a crisp high five at the end of the night, with a voting selection for each course!


$130 per person for six courses, wine matches available for an additional cost of $50.
