Distinction Christchurch Hotel conceals a rare and delicious secret: the best High Tea in town. Your day just got a whole lot classier.
The restaurant in question? Gumption Restaurant & Bar where you'll find a modern yet sophisticated layout that mixes rich turquoise with moody charcoals and creams for a very luxurious look and feel. Boasting an open plan design too, as well as staggering views over the city, Gumption is an escapist's dream within the city. Effortlessly elegant, this is the perfect place to enjoy a spot of high tea on a quiet afternoon.
High tea enthusiasts will know that such a treat requires a few very specific delicacies which include exceptionally fluffy scones, dinky sandwiches and handmade sweets and patisseries that look almost too good to eat. Here you'll find exactly that with sandwiches encasing gin cured Mt Cook salmon, chicken and truffle, manuka-smoked beef and free-range eggs with aged cheddar. As for the sweets, a picturesque raspberry macaron or green tea choux makes for the perfect finisher.
Vegetarians are treated with the same care and consideration with equally beautiful sandwiches that can name smoked eggplant, cured beetroot and goat's cheese, and hemp cauliflower as their fillings. Now that's a serious step up from the predictable cheese and pickle! Pair with it a bottle of bubbles if it's a special occasion or keep it lowkey with a barista coffee or herbal tea. At Gumption, everything is done to perfection.
