I have eaten numerous times and have always been impressed by the levels of service and the food. The view is absolutely breathtaking, one of the best in Marlborough. Great for business, friends or a romantic lunch

I visited the restaurant with friends for a leisurely lunch. We did a wine tasting with a shared platter which we all really enjoyed. My only critique is that there is no card or information that...

We had a wine tasting at brancott served by Stephanie and could not have had a better experience. From being collected by Murry to the wine tasting itself. The site is fantastic and the wine tastes awesome. All in all a perfect way to spend an afternoon. If you are choosing your winery to visit, go here first, the others... More

I was the lucky winner of a trip sponsored by Brancott wineries. What an amazing time my husband and I had! We were there on Valentines Day, perfect for celebrating this experience. Brancott gave us a Master Wineries class, featuring their delicious Sauvignon Blancs, and an outstanding lunch paired with wines. The views are as unforgettable as the food. It... More

Had lunch here on a sunny winters day. The views are awesome and on a clear day can see the Wellington hills. The architecture of the building is stunning allowing diners to maximise their views. The building will be 3 years old in September. To blend in with the rural setting the roof is covered with small stones. Diners could... More

Food was great, highlight was the slow cooked lamb and the Warm treacle dessert which was fantastic. Great atmosphere, great service and amazing view over the vineyards.

I've been here a few times and always been very well received and along with my guests suitably entertained while learning the history of their wines. A must view if you like to see the mosaic patterns of endless rows of vines complimented by very good service.

Beautiful autumn day for lunch and to marvel at the view. We had nz John Dory which was superb. We didn't try wines as we prefer the smaller, family operated vineyards but the wine with lunch was very good.
