February 2016!

Happy New Year

It’s February and already one month of the year has flown by!

Christmas at Waitete

Christmas day lunch was a great success with a wonderful atmosphere especially with Father Christmas dropping in during lunch - he nearly high jacked one of our seenagers (senior teenagers) to take her back with him to the far north.

The lead up to Christmas and over the New Year’s was very busy with lots of customers from all around the globe.

Social Wine Club

The restart of our monthly Social Wine club will be on the Thursday 25th of February with Foxes Vineyard from the Awatere Valley in Marlborough.

Seafood Month Coming Up (March)

Seafood Platter

I've planned a seafood month for March - exciting because I really enjoy cooking seafood. Look out for the menus as they will be available for lunch and dinner and will be on the website soon so keep an eye out for them.
