Christmas at Waitete

Waitete Christmas

Time to think about your Christmas party for your organization, group or club, As we don’t have a standard Christmas menu please feel free to contact me with your idea or needs so we can discuss it and design a menu to suit your parties needs and budget. Remember it is only 7 weeks to Christmas.

The Christmas Day menu is now on my website for you to peruse – you’ll note there is a choice of a 2 or 3 course meal priced accordingly. Be early with your booking as we have only have one seating for that day and we already have our first bookings.

NB: Please pre pay your choice with your booking.

Dinner Dance

The Dinner Dance this month will be on Friday 20th November. The last two nights have turned out to be a lot of fun – remember its only $35 per person. Please also pre pay so we can organize the buffet dinner and the nibbles.
