Our Cellar is an intimate private dining space that feels warm and personable. Separate to the main restaurant, it is a bespoke room crafted to showcase our selection of wines. It is perfect for hosting special occasions, both personal and corporate.

Our Cellar can accommodate from 8 to 12 guests. Guests will enjoy a menu using the freshest seasonal produce to create a memorable dining experience. We have an extensive wine list which showcases wines from France and New Zealand. Pairing wines to complement your menu can be selected by our Sommelier on request.
