The name says it all really. Showcasing the finest produce in the region, Paddock to Plate Waikato enjoys a community-centric philosophy that always delivers on quality, trusted ingredients and a jovial atmosphere.

At the heart of it all is Head Chef Tejas Nikam who certainly knows a thing or two about sourcing exceptional cuts of meat. Named the 2020/21 Beef + Lamb New Zealand Ambassador Chef, Tejas never compromises on quality and sustainable practices. And you can enjoy his expertly prepared plates from the comfort of their understated, yet stylish, dining room.

Now, for those who are planning on indulging in some of the best cuts in the region, simply look to the Butcher’s Block section of the menu, where you’ll find prime produce from Takapoto Estate, Hawke’s Bay and Magills Butchery. Ready for a good dousing of porcini mushroom, bearnaise or peppercorn sauce, be sure to treat your choice with all the respect it deserves… and order some creamy potato mash whilst you’re at it.

Other mains include a delectable fish of the day, baked goats cheese and a seasonal risotto. Never mind Paddock to Plate, this is Waikato to Plate!
