I had been on the First Table website so many times but never booked, but finally I did and I'm so glad I did. I took my Aunty out for her 85th birthday and she thought I paid for the whole table but secretly I got the food half price. Made dining at a fancy restaurant affordable. Cannot wait to use this more and more!

Last Saturday we enjoyed a lovely meal at The Old Vicarage .The service was attentive and the meals arrived in a timely fashion and were delicious.
The fish dish I ate was a highlight.
Our only complaint is that the room we were seated in, namely the Library, while small, intimate and interesting space, was so cold we had to keep our coats on.
We were so cold we did not stay for dessert.
Hopefully next time we will be seated in a warmer area.
We certainly will be back.

Dined here with 3 other ladies on Saturday night and due to the inclement weather that night, was looking for a lovely/warm atmosphere inside. We were sadly disappointed in this sense, as were taken to a lovely dining area that was freezing cold, one heater and offered blankets which when dining out is not ideal. That said, our meals were absolutely delicious and our waitress for the evening was very attentive. Will definitely be back.

Of all our Christchurch dining experiences, “The Vicarage”, is always consistently great -second to nun! Good meal choices, friendly service & perfect food. We love the decor & inside/ outside seating choices. The parking is easy & plentiful. Live music was fun, ( not too loud). We had a great night celebrating two birthdays. Hallelujah! We wouldn’t altar a thing.

Can never go wrong with the old vicarage! Amazing food, amazing service and amazing atmosphere. Would highly recommend any food off there menu and a bonus that most of the food can be gluten free. There’s not many restaurants that cater for gluten free but the old vicarage has a full range as well as dessert which was to die for!
All round amazing

If you enjoy good food and service then this eating house is the one to go to.
As a party of 4 we enjoyed our evening from the time we walked in until the time we walked out all immensely satisfied. The fish of the day thepulled pork was moist and full of flavor.
The staff were very efficient, and attentive in servicing our needs,
It was a great experience in a warm environment on a cool evening. Well done everyone at the Vicarage you did yourselves proud.
Thanks.

the food was amazing. we had lemon pepper calamari and buttermilk chicken for starters. calamari was cooked to perfection and seasoned nicely. chicken was soft and juicy. very tasty. for mains we had pork belly and beef fillet. can't fault either dishes. nice presentation, very fulfilling and just yummy. i was skeptical since this is the first time we used first table and thought the size of the servings will be somewhat not as per usual. but we left with smiles, happy tummy and definitely was a great night. i must say the waitresses were absolutely amazing, very approachable and checked in with us ensuring everything was okay. will definitely go back for more :D

Top rate! We all chose a different meal after sharing the calamari entree. Dessert was strawberry cheesecake. And everything was just right.
Good humoured and efficient service completed the experience.
Thanks for catering for us gluten free customers so seamlessly.

Had a wonderful evening at the Old Vicarage, overall the food was delicious, the pork belly in particular was fantastic! Just a few tiny improvements would make it 5 out of 5 - nothing major though and still highly recommend anyone to go. - The kids meals chips were slightly undercooked - but the main parts of the kids meals were loved :-) Never thought I'd ever say this about a dessert given my sweet tooth, but they were huge - could perhaps benefit from being a bit smaller - no one was forcing us to eat them all up though - that was their deliciousness and our low will power :-) And the wait staff were incredibly lovely but a bit too enthusiastic, asking what we'd like to drink as we sat with no chance yet to have looked at their great drink options, asking how the meal was before having taken a bite, coming to clear away an unfinished plate of someone who had just nipped to the bathroom etc - just a little more 'reading' of the table will quickly resolve that though. Overall a lovely meal and we'll head back again without hesitation.
