About the Inn

The Lodge at Cradle Forest Inn is built with spectacular local timber and stone, and features a picture-postcard exterior and a cosy fire warmed interior in winter.  It is home to our fully licensed Feathers Bistro, The Deck, and Robin’s Nest, all designed to enhance your dining and drinking experience.  



Feathers Bistro

Feathers Bistro has become a favourite amongst guests, locals and visitors to the Cradle Mountain region.  Offering great value dining combined with country hospitality, Feathers Bistro is the perfect place to enjoy a sumptuous meal or a snack.  Specialising in mouth-watering wood-fired pizzas and Texas Smoked BBQ, our menu is sure to tempt you.  Complement your delicious meal at Feathers Bistro with one of our famous local Tasmanian wines or beers.  

Feathers Bistro offers a cooked breakfast between 8am and 11am, with all other meals served between 11am and 8pm.  Whether it’s a hearty meal or something light and casual, you can’t go past Feathers Bistro at Cradle Forest Inn where you can relax and enjoy good food and wine.  At Feathers Bistro, food and service is our passion.  



The Deck

In summer, The Deck is ideal for alfresco dining and a relaxing drink.  It is the perfect setting to soak up the sun, catch up with friends and enjoy a delicious lunch with a beer or a local Tasmanian wine.  For something light, try our delicious share plates, hot or cold tasty snacks, or freshly brewed coffee and cake.  Enjoy stunning forest views and a mouth-watering pizza from our wood-fired pizza oven or smoked ribs from our Texas Smoker.  Linger on The Deck as the sun sets over the mountain and enjoy the relaxed ambiance of The Deck with a cocktail or beer. 



Robin’s Nest

Robin’s Nest is the perfect spot to enjoy a quiet drink and conversation with friends all year round.  In winter, our log fire provides warmth and the perfect ambiance for your get together.   Sit beside the fire and feel its warmth while enjoying a glass of mulled wine or a steaming cup of roasted coffee on a snowy winter’s day.  In summer, you can take in the scenic forest views through our full length windows in Robin’s Nest, while enjoying a refreshing drink from the bar or a freshly brewed coffee.
