We’re here to keep our patrons on their toes. This month is no different. Well, actually, it’s massively different. With the New Year comes new horizons as limits are being pushed beyond your control, but firmly within ours. Gin-uary sees the opportunity to continue celebrations as we house international gins to go hand in hand with this awesome sunshine. Come and drop by to find out more!
We serve up perfectly matched wine with your meal. Whether you’d like to explore the taste of Marlborough with a glass of Mahi Sauvignon Blanc with a freshly caught Marlborough Salmon Fish Of the Day or Hawkes Bay with a glass of Trinity Hill Tempranillo with a Hawkes Bay lamb loin, whether you’d like to go truly adventurous and trust our staff to guide you on a spontaneous path of tantalising discovery or whether you’d simply like to kick back and relax with a 5yr Plantation Barbados rum and coke, don’t worry because we’ve got it covered.
Food matching isn’t just about wine, though. We’re in a new age of food and beverage matching so why don’t you drop by and try the very best of North and South island craft beers with Emerson’s on tap and by bottle, together with a few from the Panhead range. From across the pond, the infamous Little Creatures Pale on tap and IPA by bottle. Then you’ll find the giants, so Corona, Steinlager (Pure on tap, Classic by bottle), Stella and a personal favourite, Kirin…Emerson’s Pilsner with a Snapper Fish Of the Day, Panhead Black Top Stout with a chocolate brownie Desert Of the Day, Little Creatures IPA with our pulled pork burger…the options are endless!
Have a read over our spirits, too. Do you like sweet whiskey? – Got it covered. Do you like super peaty whiskey? – Got it covered. We can go on all day, I’m sure you get the point by now.
