Not your typical hotel restaurant, DeBretts Kitchen reflects the owner’s philosophy of being inclusive rather than exclusive, and celebrates style over fashion, in everything from the décor, to the food, to the style of service.
Enjoy relaxed dining in our quirky and eclectic spaces. We follow the seasons with the best from local farms, waters and gardens.
A place to escape the cares of the day with a healthy or hearty breakfast, a quick… or leisurely lunch; a casual dinner with friends .. or a candlelit dinner with one special friend.
Drop in for a coffee by the fire; or a bit later in the day a cocktail or nz wine or craft beer in the legendary art deco inspired Housebar. Soak up the ambience of the soaring glass roofed atrium, complete with local art, mid century furniture and eclectic trinkets from the hotel’s past or watch the chefs in action from the banquettes in the open kitchen.
Take an almost century wide step back in time for an afternoon of glamour, glitz and delicious treats. Our Roaring 20′s High Tea will tantalise the taste buds of all cake and cocktail lovers, and the gramophone sounds of the Great Gatsby era will have you tapping your toes.
