It's wine time

Lovely surroundings, great wine tasting & good coffees. I'd love to go back to eat as we went as it was shutting. Staff were friendly & wine was good

Really enjoyable winery tour combining the winery history and development, a little inside info on how their wines are created and developed and then a generous tasting of food and wine. The team at Church Road were all so friendly and knowledgeable and the wines were just lovely - Unfortunately we only had hand luggage capacity on the plane but... More

I went to lunch here with 2 friends during the summer holiday 16/17 so this review is quite belated. I can't recall what each of us ate but I can certainly recall really enjoying what I had and my friends enjoyed their meals also. The restaurant is impressive with all the rustic features and wine barrels and you certainly experience... More

Food was delicious and suggested wine matches perfect. Only down side portions are not large for what you pay. It's quite expensive but very good and in unique setting, inside a barrel hall. Service was great will definitely return

We had lunch here and it was amazing. Their attention to detail was spot on. The Church Road Grand Reserve Sauv Blanc we had with our lunch was lovely too.

We are wine lovers. We have over 2500 New Zealand wines in our cellar and we love going to Church because it's super easy to taste everything that we want including their most premium wines. Yes, we had to pay extra for our taste of the Tom wines. That's okay for us. If you're going to pay $150 for a... More

Went to church road to buy wine, what a wonderful experience, a happy atmosphere. We were serviced by Kay what a lovely lady. We went through the tasting of the wines and came away with a lot to top up our cellars. Enjoyed it so much we stayed and had something to eat there, that was also an enjoyable experience.... More

Love the new cellar location set in a barrel hall. Usual fees for wine tasting but like the fact you can pay more to taste the more exclusive wines. I got an amazing red and will buy more.

Was disappointed with the timing of meals being brought out to the table. All but 1 meal were brought out close to each other and the last was about 5 minutes after everyone had finished. Have eaten here before and this has never been a problem, wasn't too impressed with the presentation of the desserts or the size of each... More
