The brains behind NZ's only floating bar are now proud to introduce their brand-new venue: Panners Bar and Kitchen. It's simply one of the most idyllic spots in Cromwell for a plate of home-cooked goodness.
A pit stop in the middle of the wilderness, Panners boasts some of the most jaw-dropping surroundings. Embraced by a dramatic valley and with an eyepopping gorge mere minutes away, Panners has everything a nature-lover could want. Their cheery and chic restaurant can come as somewhat of a surprise if you're just driving through these isolated Otago roads or hiking in the nearby peaks, but their modern interior and comfy nooks and cubby holes are the perfect antidote to some of NZ's more severe landscapes.
What's more, their food is warm and comforting. Pair your first Aperol Spritz with some salt and pepper squid, jalapeno poppers or some pizza bread. Then enjoy the pizza vibes for a little longer with their carefully curated selection of pizzas. With classics like pepperoni and veggie alongside their signature The Fun Guy and Cheesy Pleaser, they're letting these easy-going eats speak for themselves. And they never disappoint!
Of course, you're going to want to enjoy the impressive scenery with a beverage. Unleash your fancy side with a Strawberry Fizz or Chilli Margarita before soaking in the sun's rays with a Frozen Peach Daiquiri. As for craft ales and beers, you only have to look at their fully stocked fridge to get an idea of what's in store.
