Cuisine: A La Carte, European
Price Point: Mains from $25 - $35+

Located in the Heartland Hotel Cotswold in Papanui, Tudors is anything but 'Tudor' in their approach to great food which delivers in modernity, taste and precision.

Sitting upstairs, it's easy to miss. The door takes some searching, but the adventure is far from over... catch the chair-lift monorail upstairs where you'll be greeted by suits of armour and other such relics. Then marvel at their themed dining room that's kitted out with extravagant chandeliers and a killer atmosphere.

Get into the banquet spirit with some starters to share, like their pea and feta croquettes, duck liver parfait and crab and corn empanadas; pairings made in heaven! Then move onto some big plates like their lamb kofta burger, the inventive ginger beer-battered fish and chips or the beef cheek tagliatelle.

It might look like a meat feast over here, but the leek and capsicum polenta cake and Thai red tofu curry beg to differ! Wine enthusiasts will be elated to read the wine menu which features chardonnay and sauvignon blanc as well as riesling and aromatics. So go on, release that inner Tudor!

Warm, friendly attentive service from knowledgeable staff, a good choice of food and drinks at a reasonable price and an impressive atmosphere reminiscent of an old English pub made this a very pleasant evening. All four in our party rated the dinner highly in terms of both quality and quantity.

Absolutely amazing dining experience ! The food spoke for itself and was cooked to perfection . Highly recommend the scallops in lobster sauce and the steak - but everything was delicious . The highlight of the evening was George -the restaurant supervisor who caters to all your needs and his recommendations from the menu are superb . Never in all our dinning ( which is practically a weekly event for us ) have we ever met anyone like George and his expertise in the dinning and personal attention to his customers was A ++++++++++++ needless to say we will be back to dine at the Tudors :-)

We really enjoyed our meal and the service was excellent.The atmosphere was tranquil ( not noisy) like so many Christchurch restaurants are so that was a
pleasant change. We will definitely return to Tudors.

Welcomed by a friendly, professional waiter who regularly checked in to see how things were going. The menu had a good range of dishes and the food was delicious. They were accommodating when we asked to replace fries with a salad. Nice atmosphere and medieval decor. Cheers for a great experience.

Great meal in lovely surroundings, background music not at all intrusive! The staff were wonderful, and the idea of a lift/seat upstairs is great. So much better than missing out like many restaurants, because of disability. Come on folk, get along to Tudors - the hidden treasure!

We had a lovely evening at Tudors on Papanui with first table for four. The service was excellent as was the food a lovely evening. We had three courses and our mains were battered fish and the pan fried ling pictured below. Ending with a fragrant tea.

Excellent service very friendly staff. Good food. Lots of stairs but my 92 yr old mother-in-law managed very well without the use of their chairlift. Quite dark in restaurant but we had a window table.

Being a first table customer, you always get there before everyone else does! I love it! In addition, we had a lot of interaction with the legendary George the waiter that I have read about in previous reviews. This added to our experience. The starters were great. I had mussels in a delicious apple cider mix. The other two had scallops with a delightful sauce. Lovely presentation. Yum! My wife had the duck main, our guest had the salmon dish and I had steak. Great food. My only comment was the steak was luke warm and a bit gristly. I made the mistake by not returning it. I should have. Overall, I would go back. We loved the food. Thanks Tudors on Papanui.

It was our first time dining this Tudor styled place. The service was excellent. My husband felt his coffee was bitter and the staff was very kind to replace it with another one. I loved the seafood chowder which has lots of veges. My braised lamb shoulder was very tasty. So was the sirloin steak that my husband had.
We would definitely come back again.
