To welcome back their much-loved regulars and stimulate new visitors to the popular Shoalhaven holiday region, the Bangalay team have developed ‘COVID-safe’ protocols and bespoke dining experiences that can now be fully enjoyed at the property’s intimate on-site venue, Bangalay Dining.

Bangalay Dining is launching their new takeaway, home delivery and in-room dining menu – with a nod to the kitchen teams that trained under chef David Campbell at the Hungry Duck in Berry. Bangalay Dining head chef Brent Strong has drawn on the Asian fusion flavours mastered under Campbell and blended Bangalay Dining’s signature use of native ingredients to create a menu specially designed to travel well and cater for the locals who are wanting something new, fresh and exciting.
