The standard of food is very high and there is always plenty of it. There are a number of rooms which may this a versatile venue for meetings and breakout rooms. And on a fabulous Wellington day its great to make use of the extensive outdoor decking areas. I would highly recommend this venue for your next meeting or function. You won’t want to leave!”
