Love coming to Church Road!
The service was spectacular, and we felt very looked after. The food was delicious! The pairing of the Chardonnay with the Platter for Two worked wonders, and overall the experience was extremely enjoyable. We hope to visit again one day! Thank you.
Our 4th visit .. always a great experience .. wonderful ambience.
Always an amazing experience. Thank you.
Church Road is rapidly becoming one of our favourite wineries. All the staff are knowlegable and friendly. The food is delicious and good value. Whenever we have visitors its our go to winery
My wife and I had the lamb and the beef mains. We each ate half and then switched plates. What we really liked was the lamb, the sauerkraut fritter, and the sauces in each dish. We both wished for more of a sear on the beef. My wife had asked for medium rare. It was a bit on the medium side. None of these negative criticisms were very serious. We ordered a bottle of the MacDonald Cabernet Sauvignon. We chose the wine after speaking with one of the sommeliers.
Excellent visit again. Brought some newbies with us and they loved it.
The lunch dishes were amazing. Food took awhile to be served - we were starting to get slightly irritated but when the food arrived, we all thought it was worth the wait. Delish.
We were initially served for our wine tasting by a young lady who was ok, but very distracted by an engagement that happened on the steps and didn't take too kindly by our lighthearted jokes about the scenario...and had clearly received training that was quite standard, although she was also clearly passionate about Church Road, so good on her. Our lunch - however - was OUTSTANDING. Amazing food and we were served by a wonderful older lady who really made our afternoon. The best food we've had in any of our visits to Hawkes Bay.
For our Staff Xmas function your venue was perfect. We were allocated a space in the barrel room and felt we were not disturbing our dinners as we are rether a noisy Lot. Everyone was happy with the set menu offered and the food was superb.
Had an amazing afternoon here! Food was delicious, wine outstanding and our waitress Carol was an absolute rockstar!!! Couldn't fault it one bit. Thanks so much for having us
So pleased we were sat outside, it really made the day rather than being inside where it is quite dark/dim and much cooler
My friend and I loved the new menu! It was absolutely delicious. We chose the chicken dish and the lamb dish and each tried a bit of the other. We were both highly impressed by the meal and all the flavours. We also shared the panacotta for the desert which was very enjoyable. Highly recommend!
