Birthday Surprise

It was our daughter's birthday during our New Zealand so we booked a surprise Birthday Lunch for her here. From the time I made the first enquiry about booking and needing Gluten Free options, the service was first class. Their responses were prompt and they went out of their way to make us feel... read more

Great views service and food! An ideal place to bring anyone visiting or just somewhere to go out on a fancy dinner. Lovely staff, great wines and delicious food. Would recommend this place to anyone visiting the area.

We were 4 Wine Society members on a tasting tour in Blenheim- enjoyed our visit& tasting,(though we were a bit surprised to be charged a fee- normally pre-arranged Wine Society visits are gratis! ) however the lunch in the Restaurant was excellent, a seafood pot-au-feu and bread/cheese/charcuterie/olive oils platter for 4- very tasty& excellent value!

Up high over the vineyards with seating inside or out under cover, featuring ‘fresh, creative fare with an emphasis on local, seasonal produce, designed to complement our wonderful wines.’ From the cooked items on the short summer menu Mrs P chose Baked Spinach, Pumpkin & Ricotta Pasta ($25) described as ‘Fresh baked cannelloni filled with spinach, ricotta, pumpkin and pine...

We have just had our daughters wedding at Wither Hills. Christine is the STAR of the venue. What an amazing wedding planner - nothing stresses her. The food is absolutely amazing - they catered for the children, vegetarians and everything we asked for. We are not from Blenheim but get Virginia Hope flowers, Sara Griggs for cakes, Ellena Court for... More

I debated between 3 and 4 stars, but ultimately I just couldn't say that this was "very good". It's better than average, but I was disappointed with the service and felt that the food was good but not great. The setting is beautiful and I really had much higher hopes for the experience. The service was slow and inattentive despite... More

We have been here twice in the last few months. There's a well set out lounge, wine tasting area, and restaurant with a choice of indoor and outdoor settings (shaded). The food is top quality and the wine matches go well with the dishes. We enjoy coming here and will return.

Wither Hills Restaurant is one of the best restaurants i have visited. I would recommend anyone to take a taxi there and stay as long as you like. The selection of wines along with a great simple menu makes for a long day inside or outside depending on ones likes and dislikes. I will definitely be going back again when... More
