As you entered The Carvery on the left, you will be able to see a 3-metre long carving station which features about 3-4 top-quality cuts of beef, lamb, pork and chicken. A carver will be stationed there to serve your preferred cuts.

What we had that day includes:
  • Australian Prime Rib - grain-fed beef, rich and robust flavour (suggested pairing with malden sea salt, red wine jus, anchovy butter) 
  • Herb Crusted Australian Beef Ribeye - grass-fed beef
  • Pork Knuckle (suggested pairing with sweet mustard, chicken jus) 
  • Spit Roasted Chicken - the chef picked out the right sized bird that cooks evenly without drying out, so each bird is about 1.6kg (suggested pairing chili sea salt, chicken gravy, truffle butter) 

Ask the carver, which sauce goes well with which type of meat. There are 4 different house-made sauces available daily.

The spit roasted chicken is so good, soft and tender!

During dinner, 2 slabs of house-made butters are placed in front of the carving station.
Another must-try, is Truffle Butter! It just go well with everything!

Apart from roast meats, The Carvery also offers a selection of 8 or 12 carefully selected side dishes at lunch and dinner respectively.

By the side of the carving station, during dinner buffets, please do look out for the crisp and fluffy Yorkshire Puddings, they are so good, I had 2 of them! They actually goes well with Veal Jus if I remember correctly, however I personally find that its best with Truffle Butter. Bias :P

If you have the habit of starting a buffet with some greens or seafood on ice, you may start off with the starters. There are 4 gourmet salads such as Greek Beets with Feta Cheese, Roasted Sweet Potatoes and Figs, Charred Okra with Tomato, Garlic and Preserved Lemon, and a Class Waldorf with Chicken.

English Trifle

Next up, desserts! As The Carvery focuses more on meats, so don't expect a wide variety of desserts selection.

English Trifle is a rich dessert layered with luscious thick custard, bailey's soaked sponge cake and fresh fruits and berries.
