Darefield Fine Dining


Thomas Hiddlestone - Chef

The Chef has designed a wonderful menu which will change often to reflect the seasonal produce we also try to use as much local ingredients as possible.

Thomas uses only the freshest ingredients for our dishes to give our guest the best quality food we can.

Enjoy your meal in a relaxing environment of our dining room in front of the fire or our outdoor area during the fine weather, the team and I hope to make your visit special.

Our wine list is mostly of NZ wines and is growing and changing.
