The food

Its all about keeping it simple. We don’t want to mess too much with the quality ingredients we have sourced, so why should we? We have set up a bistro style menu with a European influence. Rustic bold flavours that marry perfectly. Nanna's home cooking but done better. It’s the kind of food that makes you want to wipe the plate with a chunk of crusty bread to savour every drop. As we change our menu regularly, it is subject to change without notice. 

The beers

Tap Beers: Hophugger, Emerson's and Stoke Gold Ale. Our tap beers change regularly, please ask your waiter for our current selection. Bottled Beer: Heineken, Steinlager Pure, Macs Gold, Corona, Speights, Harringtons, Emersons, Stoke, Adnams, Hancock and Co Wheat, Invercargill Brewery, Valley Brewing Company, Clausthaler


LonelyPlanet Logo"This sophisticated corner restaurant honours its 1925 building with stylish monochrome decor and a feature wall commemorating the day Timaru went bust. The food is high-class comfort food starring local produce such as venison, beef and salmon, while an alluring drinks list encourages a pop in for wine and cheese, or a glass of sticky with golden syrup pudding." - Lonely Planet 2016
