Birthday Parties

Birthday Parties
Celebrate your birthday in style at our Hotel whether you want a late lunch with a few friends on our new deck or splash out on a formal dinner in our restaurant. We have a number of exclusive areas where we can cater for your group privately with a number of appealing menu alternatives.

The Deck
Our new deck is already proving to be the favoured spot with large groups. Straight out from our main bar with gorgeous views overlooking Lyttelton harbour, this area can cater for groups of up to 30 seated or 50 standing up. Perfect for a long lunch with friends and family where guests can order off our extensive a la carte menu or you may wish to provide for them, with a range of enticing platters or cater for them from a range of our fixed two and three course menus.

The Snug
Our snug area is an intimate area suitable for smaller groups of up to 20 and especially suited to elderly groups or if the weather is inclimental.

Our fully renovated restaurant is an expansive private space suited for groups dining of between 30 and 70 guests. It contains separate loos and bar if required ans overlooks our garden area with glimpes out over the harbour. This space will generally attract a hire fee to book exclusively, however, this depends upon your catering requirements.


The Games Room Is a self contained area seperated from our main bar. The area has its own sound system (juke box), pool table, fuze ball and pin ball machine. Hence, an area for the young at heart. Its exclusive use is subject to a hire fee.
