About Katers Restaurant

A harmonious blend of intimacy and grandeur, Katers Restaurant at Peppers Manor House in Sutton Forest offers a truly world class experience. The magnificent country estate setting, rich décor and celebration of fresh produce – including vegetables and herbs grown on site - combine to create a memorable meal. From a menu reflecting Head Chef Thomas Pirker’s philosophy of embracing seasonal flavours and making the most of abundant and quality ingredients grown in the region, expect sophistication in dishes such as a trio of Dewsbury pork to share: 8-hour slow cooked shoulder, roasted honey caraway rack and fried croquette, broccolini, carrots, baked potato, cider apple sauce and mustard aioli. If not sure what to choose, perhaps try Katers’ five course degustation menu, with matched wines.

A few words from Katers Restaurant

The true essence of Southern Highlands dining is found at Katers Restaurant. Here you will get some idea of the level of passion for Southern Highlands ingredients that has earned Katers Restaurant an Australian Good Food Guide Chef Hat five years in a row.

The setting complements the excellent standards of the kitchen, with pendant ceiling lights and luxurious de´cor. In the restaurant its a real fine dining experience where every effort has been made to showcase the amazing local produce. Outside on the terrace and on the lounges we take a more casual approach.

In Katers you can expect to see the very best of amazing local Artisan produce, cooked with respect, using techniques old and new, dishes that showcase elegance and sophistication, refinement and true flavours of our region. We source locally grown vegetables, herbs and edible flowers, truly giving you a taste of the freshest local produce direct from the source. Open from 6pm daily, we recommend booking ahead to avoid disappointment.

We are proud to share with you the following regional produce:
