Ovens Natural Parks's signature fish and chips!

Ovens Natural Parks's signature fish and chips!

One of the things that you can count on when you visit the Ovens is the quality of the food we serve from our kitchen. Our fish and chips are superlative, and our grilled hamburgers and hot dogs are the talk of the county. We also feature homestyle specials every day. Our bread is specially baked for us at the Lahave Bakery. We always have lots of fresh vegetables and salads on our menu. Whether your tastes are plain or fancy, you will surely find something to recharge your batteries at our fully-licensed Café or at our Take-Out window.
