Lovedale Smokehouse Cafe

We are an owner operated, small batch, artisan smokehouse specialising in both charcuterie and barbecue. 

24th March 2020 Update: Our cafe is currently closed due to COVID19. We do have Take Home Ready To Heat Meals available in our gourmet pantry along with our full range of beers, ciders and wines to take away.  Our Gourmet Pantry is open Thursday to Monday 10am-4pm. Check our socials for our daily take home meal menu selections. Phone orders and payment are welcome (02) 49307832. 

When We Re-Open:

Relax in our covered courtyard featuring vineyard views and splashing fountains or in our air conditioned dining room with a craft beer, cider, Hunter Valley wine or coffee and enjoy the best lunch the Hunter Valley has to offer! 

​Our menu showcases our range of house-made smoked produce, from small batch charcuterie and smoked seafood to low and slow barbecue. 

Platters and Deli Boards

Our charcuterie platters and deli boards showcase our range of smoked and cured cold cut meats, smoked seafood, terrines, pates, cheeses and hand made chutneys and relishes. Named after the roads in Lovedale, we have 9 different platters and deli boards available, each with different charcuterie and cheeses to try. They are also available to take-away to enjoy on a picnic or in your accommodation later. 

Low and Slow Barbecue

A visit to Lovedale Smokehouse just isn't complete without trying our Low and Slow USA Barbecue! Alder smoked beef brisket, hickory smoked pork ribs and pulled pork shoulder are featured. Served with house-made barbecue sauce and sides, they are sure to leave you feeling satisfied. 


Our menu is rounded out with more crowd favourites such as Brisket Burnt End Nachos, Smoked Salmon and Potato Salad, House Smoked Sausages and Smokehouse Burgers.
