Chris Scott, Church Road Regional Winemaker and Jenny Parton, Head Chef have used their expertise and passion to wine match the dishes on our menu, providing the complete wine and food experience. We offer an extensive a la carte menu along with delicious platter and cheeseboard options.
The Pinot Gris suggested for the starter was much too sweet for my palate. Everything else, however, was excellent, including the main course beef and Tom's Cab Sav Merlot.
Great food and service as usual good work church road
Fantastic staff and service. Food and drink delicious and great value. Thank you you a great afternoon.
12 of us attended Summer Sessions on Sunday after having such a great time last year. Booked well ahead and phoned to request seating outside. Deb was wonderful and we were given the perfect table under the shade sails. Ordering drinks and food was smooth and came out in good time. Towards the end service was very slow and wine glasses were removed from our table that we were still using. I gather that because of the popularity of the event resources were stretched. Food truck sold out really quickly which was a shame however the platters we ordered from the restaurant were fully loaded and delicious. Our server Melissa was fantastic, really friendly and was quick to jump on any issues we had. Danica Bryant was incredible to listen to live. Will definitely reserve another table next year :D
Everything at Church Rd is always top notch. Had a family lunch there and did some wine tasting - the food was great and the service really friendly. Also love that they only charge cellar door prices in the restaurant. Will be back over and over. Keep it up.
Look forward to my next visit to NZ so that I can come again.
Thanks again for a wonderful lunch and wine tasting.
Outstanding experience with our UK guests thank you 😃
great way to spend a summer lunchtime
Slow service, food was cold when it arrived. Wine arrived halfway through the main course after several reminders to staff. Definitely a long way to go to catch up to the quality of other vineyard restaurants in Hawkes Bay.
Lucy our waitress was fantastic, such a professional. The food was delicious but the service of it average, our sides did not come out until we finished our mains, this was after several waitresses followed up. Great atmosphere we will come back.
Fantastic tuna, Hapuka and salmon, we both loved all 3 dishes and the 2014 TOM Chardonnay was spectacular. Thanks for such a special friendly atmosphere
Loved the food, the wine & the atmosphere. Great winery and exceptional food. We’ll be back...again!
Can’t recommend Church Road highly enough...delicious food and wine, genuinely friendly and excellent service, and all in an amazingly beautiful and relaxed setting...outstanding. Management have hit the nail on the head in all aspects but particularly in the selection and training of their staff. Thank you for a great day out!
Beautiful food matched with stunning wine. Fantastic.
Good service and food was to a very good standard.
A very enjoyable experience with ambience, atmosphere and,service well suited to your winery reputation.
Another wonderful meal in a very special setting. Delicious.
Fantastic experience- service best in the Bay, food delicious.Can't wait to go back.
At the higher price range, but given the quality of the whole package, food, wine, service and ambiance, good value!
Delicious food in a lovely setting. All staff were welcoming, polite and caring. Thank you for making our special occasion wonderful.
Our very large group was given superb service and beautiful food. We had a couple of dietary requirements which were handled professionally. I would highly recommend Church Road to anyone.
