There are few more picturesque locations in the Daylesford region than the stunning estate that is home to Sault Restaurant, just 70 minutes’ drive, north-west of Melbourne.
With spectacular natural beauty on all sides, including the Wombat State Forest, lush fields of lavender and its very own lake, the estate offers tranquil and elegant surrounds to enjoy a long leisurely lunch, an intimate dinner or even a wedding.
Owners Jodi Flockhart and Damien Aylward are the passionate creative minds behind Sault, and their personal attention is given to every detail of the property and its operations. After getting married there themselves in 2006, they were so inspired by the venue, they changed careers and bought the restaurant business six months later.
Sault Restaurant offers a unique regional dining experience with locally sourced ingredients used, including produce grown on the property in Sault’s own kitchen garden. The team of chefs at Sault create beautiful dishes, taking a seasonal approach to the à la carte menu. The tasting menu is a particular highlight, offering a series of simple but complex tastes, served to you course after course, with no need for thoughts or decisions, just enjoyment.
Sault’s carefully maintained gardens have hosted countless beautiful weddings, with many more to come now that there’s a purpose-built chapel in front of the lake. The grounds, lake and chapel offer the perfect setting for a variety of functions and events, and all the food, drinks and dining requirements are more than taken care of by the Sault team.
Sault has also worked with many local providers to curate all the services you may need for your special occasion or event – from flowers to photos, music to dancing, Flockhart and Aylward have an extensive list of suppliers they know and love, to service your every need, and one of them is always there on the day to make sure everything runs flawlessly.
Sault Restaurant is less than eight kilometres out of Daylesford on the Ballan-Daylesford Road. Once you arrive, you will be transported to another time and place, as you bask in the magnificent countryside and let the caring and dedicated team at Sault Restaurant take care of you.
