The name 'Perch' was inspired by the hotel's exterior mural, 'Rise from the Rubble'. This beautiful mural, which depicts a flourishing Ōtautahi Christchurch, features a kōwhai tree and an inquisitive Tahou Silvereye bird. It also epitomises the establishments location overlooking lively Hereford Street.

At Perch, share plates are the name of the game, offering an array of delectable choices to please your palate. Start with the irresistible Kumara fries, perfectly paired with garlic aioli, or savour the smoky allure of waffle fries accompanied by chipotle mayonnaise.

For something a bit heartier, the medium plates beckon with offerings like the Southern fried chicken nibbles, served with smoky BBQ sauce and ranch dressing. Or try the spiced grilled cauliflower steak, a gluten-free and vegan delight that'll have your taste buds doing the tango.

Now, raise your glass to the Perch Mezze Platter – a symphony of flavours featuring chorizo, salami, prosciutto, hot smoked salmon, and a tempting array of accompaniments. It's a perfect prelude to the main act. Save room for something sweet, like the heavenly Chocolate Mousse with berry compote and orange meringue or the Banoffee Pie with caramel sauce and fresh banana.

But the show doesn't end there! Perch on the balcony for pre or post dinner drinks from a harmonious menu ensemble of wines, cocktails, and more. So, why wait? Spread your wings and join us for an unforgettable dining experience that's bound to leave you chirping with delight!
