I have been here a couple of times before and always find it funny how such a lovely restaurant can be in a built up industrial area.... but it works.

Great on a summer day, sitting outside and within a tranquil garden setting. The food menu has great variety. On this occasion with clients, I had the Moroccan Lamb salad. Very nice.

It is definitely a must do in this areas as there are few options to this standard in this area. The bonus is that you can look through the property, taking in it's Fisher family history! Very cool part of this

I've been here twice for breakfast now and can't fault the place. Very friendly and helpful staff. Would highly recommend. A beautiful historical place nicely preserved.

Visited this gem of a restaurant last night. Our last night in New Zealand. What a fitting way to end a great little holiday to n.z. The dining area is ample but not large so therefore when a large group of people made their way into the dining room next to our little party of three there were problems. Could they have been any louder!! Don't think so. I asked this group to please quieten down as this was refined dining. People did so and the dining experience continued nicely. When I needed to use the facilities I was met with affront. The two toilets (which were allocated for both male/female), were showing that they were both vacant but to my horror, (upon opening the door/doors) men occupied both cubicles. I think that management should allocate one toilet cubicle for men and one for women. That way no one will be embarrassed.

Amongst the Corporate warehouse Buildings that stretches along HighBrook Drive there is a hidden treasure of absolute beauty of perfection.... historic landscaped Farmhouse "Fisher House"
As you enter the Grounds you are surrounded by manicured lawns shrubs of greenery... ample parking safely away from the busy roads.
The bold strong structure of Fisher House as you stroll towards the main entrance welcomes you in with a comfortable Hello!
Beautiful interior and welcoming staff who invite you to grab a drink at the Bar while you wait for your table.
The crowded bar tells you immediately this is a place that's great to unwind.
Great selection of beverages international beers wines.
Menu easy well priced selection of starters entrees mains and desserts.
Ordering did not take long and meals served within 30minutes.
Overall experience Excellent would definitely be coming again.
Great place to unwind And share a fantastic meal.
