Dining at the Great Lake Hotel

Chef Paul Foreman brings a wealth of experience and passion to the Great Lake Hotel. Having worked extensively around the country and internationally, in top-rated restaurants through to local institutions, Paul’s love of local produce has brought him to Tasmania’s Central Highlands where fish, game and the freshest of ingredients are close at hand.

Dining with us is an experience of country pub-style food with a contemporary twist.
