Set on 28 acres of sprawling bushland in the heart of Mount White, Saddles is a gourmet destination restaurant and bakehouse. The restaurant's philosophy celebrates all that is Australiana – the wild yet beautiful landscape, the magical flora and fauna that surrounds the homestead and dam, and the unique wildlife that calls Saddles home.
The name, ‘Saddles’ takes inspiration from artisan saddler, Heath Harris, one of Australia’s most renowned horse trainers and masters of saddlery. Harris regularly crafts saddles for John Singleton’s nearby Strawberry Hills Stud and personally designed the famed saddle chairs at the restaurant's brass scalloped bar.
The Saddles menu is modelled on Cameron’s simple and ethical approach to food along with showcasing Australian native ingredients. Highlights on the dining menu include a selection of house-made charcuterie, savoury pastries, salads inspired by the onsite garden, roast Little Hill farm chicken, local seafood.
The bakery offers house-made breads, pastries, sweet tarts, cakes and Australian classics including meat pies with grass-fed beef cheeks and wine, pork and fennel sausage rolls and of course, the humble Lamington.
