Where you'll leave with more friends than you walked in with, Ploughman's Restaurant & Bar is a traditional British pub where visitors, locals and globetrotters unite.

Graced by a certain rustic charm, you have mismatched furniture, antique collectables and memorabilia aplenty. Uniformity is so yesterday! It's delightfully personal and appeals to all those who are after a friendly, casual bite with loved ones. Fully equipped with an English garden, it's also a great spot for summer days... of which there are many in this glorious part of fare NZ.

The menu is jam-packed with home-cooked goodies. Nothing gets the appetite going like some seafood chowder with a warm, garlic roll or their signature Ploughman's sharing platter, complete with fried chicken, skewered prawns and charcuterie staples.

Move on to some classic Kiwi dishes, like twice-cooked lamb shank or their renowned venison pie that comes with lashings of gravy (this is a British pub after all). And what would a British pub be without fish and chips?! Ice-cold Pimms is on tap here too; summer just became an all-year thing!
