- Housed in a magnificent castle-like building perched on the Port Hills overlooking Christchurch, this silver-service restaurant is the brainchild of acclaimed chef, Bruce Griffiths. Using stone quarried from the nearby hills, Henry Ell constructed the building in 1918 as a rest house, drawing his inspiration from English manor houses and inns. The interior is opulent, with magnificent lead light windows, ornate timbered arches and big open fireplaces. Candle-lit tables and spectacular views of Christchurch add to the ambiance making this a truly wonderful dining experience. This restaurant serves elaborate, refined cuisine with attention to every detail. Open for afternoon and morning teas.
