We had a group of 8 people and had dinner at the Brantry. The menu is extensive. The wait staff are friendly and approachable. The meal was of a very high standard and well priced.

Away for a weekend and saw from trip advisor that this place was #1 and so we thought we would have to try and it didn't disappoint. Food was excellent and service was perfect. Wonderful new zealand food in a fantastic little venue.

We dined here on a Friday night, had made a booking early in the week. Being mid-winter the weather was cold and wet and we were greeted at the door by a very nice young lady, pointed out the steps, offered to take our coats and asked if we would like to warm up by the fire . We were... More

I dined here on Friday night with 2 girlfriends. We were holidaying together and this restaurant had been recommended by the manager at our accommodation. Well, they were not wrong. The waitress was great, very professional, knowledgeable, friendly and attentive. The meals were all served in good time, all together, and all very fresh and hot. The quality of the... More

We took the trip fantastic to Brantry's last night and it was perfect. We were taking a 3 day break and wanted a "date night" in the middle of it all. We made a great choice.

My 84yrs mum and I went to the brantry for her belated birthday. We go at least once a year. Wonderful food, generous portions, and didn't break the bank. I don't often go for lamb but am so glad I tried the delicious moist neck fillet, no room for pud though!

We had the three course special and loved it. There was plenty of choice in the menu and everything was presented as a creation. The tastes were amazing highlighting NZ cuisine. The wine list covered all price ranges with some value for money specials available. Overall a fantastic experience

Had a wonderful meal with great food. It was a cold winter's evening but the restaurant was nice and warm and inviting. Superb beef and lamb dishes and the apple turnover was fantastic. Great for a special occasion.
