In Irish mythology Danu is the mother goddess associated with the land along with the bounty reaped from it. In honour of that ancestral figure Danu Cellars is a nod to our family’s heritage and the land on which we sow. 

At Danu Cellars you will experience exquisite flavours sourced from the surrounding farms and fields in this agricultural mecca we are lucky enough to call home. We only source the finest, freshest ingredients and the menu will reflect what’s in season around us. With a focus on sustainability we are proud to showcase local farmers, purveyors and artisans and look forward to welcoming you to share in our passion for true farm-to-table dining.
