Alongside the rest of New Zealand, it’s been really tough to operate over the last two years. It is essential to our success that we offer the best guest experience we can, at all times. In the current climate with increased customer demand and a decreased recruitment market, we need to tighten up our service offering to make sure the standard of our service remains exceptional. We have decided to focus our energy and excellent staffing team on offering exceptional daytime experiences in our bistro and offering takeaway options for evenings. We hope you can understand.

I chose this place based on others reviews and it did not disappoint. The atmosphere of the place was amazing! We were very well looked after from the moment we got there. When we got to our table we were offered blankets and they even kindly turned on the outdoor heater for us and made sure we were warm enough and well looked after. The food was absolutely amazing, we chose the lamb, pumpkin and the greens and it was some of the best food we have eaten this year. The wine was incredible as well.Once we had finished eating they had our wine tasting all set up for us."
