We dine here regularly, mostly over the summer months, so were very disappointed in our recent lunch experience. Wine tasting and buying as always, was top class. Dining-not sure if there are new restaurant owners? What had been a proven menu had changed a lot, so much in fact, that we struggled to find something on the menu that sounded... More

Went for a coffee with a friend. It was a beautiful spring day but we were the only customers there. Lots of seating options inside and out, lovely decor. We sat outside by the grassed area so we could admire the lovely view. My moccha was okay but I got two marshmallows and a wee biscuit with it. The staff... More

Very friendly staff. Free and informative wine tasting. Must try the Pinot Gris! Some of their wines are exported to Australia and sold in Dan Murphy stores. (The staff are honest and inform you of this to save you expensive courier fees) :-)

Went as part of a wine tour so didn't get to pick Wither Hills as a location for lunch. It was nice and priced as expected. I asked for the pasta without mushrooms however was informed that it was already made as a large batch which was disappointing, wonder how long it had been sitting out the back. Service was... More

Absolutely loved our lunch at Wither Hills. Enjoyed the wine tasting and months later am still thinking about their cheese and cured meat platter!

Mid winter, beautiful Marlborough day and Wither Hills restaurant. A very potent combination! We were welcomed by a very friendly maitre'd, shown to a lovely table with glorious views and guided through the menu. Everyone chose something different but all arrived at the same time and was extremely tasty. Beatifully clean restrooms and plenty of parking. The only downside were... More

We happened upon Wither Hills only days after Prince William and Dutchess Kate had secretly visited the vineyard. Even as Americans, we were pretty impressed by that :) The wine was delicious and the food amazing. We had a sampling of several things and were very impressed. You can sit at patio tables or in the grass courtyard on beanbag... More

Welcomed by friendly staff and seated outside. Lovely setting and nice atmosphere. Disapointed with menu as it was aimed at tourists and there was nothing for a regular inexpensive lunch. Ended up with bread and dips. Vineyards need to realise that when the tourists aren't around in the winter the locals are still here should be catered for. The lovely... More

We couldn't fault anything with our visit. We we're welcome when arrived, asked if we could sit outside and shown to out table, friendly chit chat about the weather and where we were from. We had a starter, main and desert, the lovely lady also helped with choosing a wine. Then off to tasting, well the only thing I can... More

This was our first wine tasting in Marlborough! The lovely manager and assistant introduced us to their wines and made us feel extremely welcome despite our sparse knowledge and experience in wine tasting. We ended up with two bottles for home even though we hadn't planned to get any. (That's good service for you!) wonderful building too. Would love to... More
