New Zealand may be famed for its lamb, but this eatery takes it to the next level with sustainably-sourced meat that travels a remarkably short distance from the local paddock to your plate.

Rustic in its cooking methods and decoration style, The Fat Lamb takes the form of an old country farmhouse with a touch of contemporary luxury. Exposed brick walls and ancient fireplaces are juxtaposed against plush dining chairs, welcoming booths and fashionable hanging lights.

'Ewe' won't be surprised what forms most of the menu! From the humble lamb comes delicious offerings like lamb shoulder with semolina potatoes and vegetables, lamb chops with fresh greens, ribs with herbs aplenty and a juicy lamb burger spritzed with Persian spices, dukkah yoghurt and a gooey tangelo preserve.

If you want to escape the herd, other options include a seafood stew, beef sirloin steak and a chicken burger. If you fancy something a bit lighter, enquire about the daily pasta that uses only the freshest seasonal ingredients.

Reviews

We had a fantastic experience at The Fat Lamb. The food was delicious, we had the farmers choice menu (4 courses) and the waiter knew the menu very well, describing all the courses as he served them. He suggested some great wines to pair with the food and was very friendly. We're locals and will definitely go back again.

Such a delicious experience - foot, atmosphere and the staff, special mention to Laurie and her attention to detail.

Everybody enjoyed their meals. They were brought out on time and the quality of the meat (whether it was lamb rack or lamb patty!) was very good. A shame my wife and I didn't opt for the shoulder of lamb to share (after I saw others getting it) but I enjoyed my option. The venison was amazing and the lamb rack was high quality. A bit weird it was served on a 'bed of beans' as opposed to a kumara or potato mash, but great flavours! Alex was a great host.
