To our loyal customers and friends – following the government’s lockdown of non-essential services Wombat Hill House will be looking a little different for a while.⠀

We still want to be able to supply you with delicious sourdough loaves, baguettes, pastries, and other takeaways. Now we’ll be adding to the offering so you can also pick up your local staples as well and grab an excellent coffee at the same time.⠀

What can you shop for?
We’ve been growing beautiful pesticide-free vegetables, herbs, and flowers for Lake House our Two Chef’s Hat restaurant for almost 2 years. With the mandated closure of our restaurant – we have a surplus of nutrient-rich vegetables available to purchase at Wombat.

A selection of great slow-fermented (real) sourdough, pastries, and doughnuts from our bake house at Dairy Flat Farm will be freshly baked and delivered to Wombat each morning we are open. Hurry in for these (and your coffee to takeaway). A takeaway menu of Wombat favourites including our much-loved sourdough based pizzas, burgers, toasties, salads and more, will also be available.

There will also be pantry staples – quality flour, milk, eggs, cheese, olives and more from our trusted suppliers. Boxes of local mineral water and some essentials such as tissues and toilet paper will also be available. Limited items will also include our own Daylesford Pure hand sanitiser.
