We stopped here for lunch on our Wineries tour. We chose our table, selected our food and then tasted the wines on offer before we sat down to our lunch (having selected the wines to enjoy with our food). It is a nice setting, staff were very good and a reasonable choice of food. We are able to sit outside... More

It was my daughters 40th and brother in laws 70th. The service was very good. Friendly staff and the food canopies were really good. This was followed by an average dinner though my ribeye steak was very tasty it was a tad overcooked so was he fish. A lovely place to enjoy a celebration.

The menu is awful. This must be one of the worst restaurants in the region. My wife and I had the beef, which was fatty, tasteless, and not properly cooked. Our dining friends had fish which seem to be okay. The salad was awful, and the Chef should understand that a 12 year old kid with a moderate understanding could... More

Recommended by friends from Nelson as something to try during our visit to the other side of the world, it delivered. We had a very relaxed, casual, lunch with the recommended wines which were a grade up from those sold by Waitrose! A very pleasant way to pass an hour or two and close to the ferry.

We visited the Wither Hills cellar door while on our wine tour of the Marlborough area last month. The staff were very informative and were more than happy to allow us to taste a selection of wines. There is a lovely view of the vineyards and the food looked good.

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!
