Church Rd is consistently excellent for its quality of food, wine and service. I have been several times this year and would rate it as my favourite Hawke's Bay dining experience. I notice that the current menu hasn't changed a great deal for some time. It's nice to try new dishes so hopefully there might be some changes to the summer menu?

Everything was amazing! I did however order the fish, but the kumara was cold, and as its a winter menu, it wasnt as enjoyable as it could have been. Apart from that, the service and staff were great. Totally recommend.

Wonderful venue for a special family occasion - with attentive, friendly staff; delicious, generous servings of food; and the Church Road Chardonnay was "perfection in a glass!" We look forward to returning one day soon.

Loved it. We chose the wrong Wine with lunch and the waitress swapped it immediately with a more suitable wine. Food was great and exceptional Value for money. We had the Platters. The food was fresh and something for every palette. Would definitely come again.

We travelled from Auckland on a family holiday and Church Road Winery was on our not to miss list. A great day at the winery with amazing food and drink. The service was excellent and the kitchen was very helpful to meet a dietary need. Topped the day off with a guided tour and tasting. Highly recommend a visit.

Church Rd we totally enjoyed our lunch on Mothers Day! The food and service was totally awesome. Love the setting and i was so pleased you seated us on a long table rather than the large round table as i found once before it was a little hard to hear on the round table. But everything was perfect this time! Huge thanks!

We absolutely loved our experience at Church Road. Thank you for accommodating our friends arriving by helicopter. Food, wine, service and atmosphere were impeccable - I only wish we had time to visit again during our stay in Napier. Thank you, Alison
