Homage restaurant is set in Spicers Hidden Vale. There is a purity and respect for the land and produce in all that we present at Homage. Our chefs cook from an outdoor coal pit, smokehouse, wood-fire and rotisserie. We have an 89 bed market garden, orchard, bee hives and free range farm onsite, meaning that much of the produce is from Hidden Vale itself and anything that’s not, is collected direct from nearby farms.
