The Christmas day lunch menu is up on our website for you to browse. Bookings are already steady for our lunch so if you are thinking about coming don’t wait too long as spaces are filling up fast and you don’t want to miss out on a great day.

Highlights from October

Social Wine Club

The highlights for October were the Oktoberfest and our Social Wine Club.

Peter Canciani with his trusty accordion, got the Oktoberfest into full swing with guests enjoying the hearty meals with a real German flavour accompanied by authentic German beers - a thoroughly enjoyable night.

The social wine club was another success with Man O' War Vineyard from Waiheke, the club members and their guests loved the wines and the matches to the menu and Thomas Morton winemaker and speaker did an excellent job answering questions and keeping the group entertained.

Our next and last social wine club for the year will be with Moana Park Vineyard from Hawkes Bay with Mat Frear as the speaker and there’s a last chance to stock up and buy your wines for Christmas!

New menus coming soon!

Later on in November we will introduce our new lunch and dinner menu for the summer season and a brand new wine list created by Cameron Douglas MS. Chef’s really looking forward to launching these - please feel free to comment!
