our story


The Bannockburn Hotel Wine Country Restaurant and Bar is just across the bridge from Cromwell, a thriving township in the heart of Central Otago. We are privileged to look out over some of the finest vineyards in the world.

We’ve seen the Gold Rush of the 1860’s, the Chinese settlements have come and gone, the valley has flooded and we’re still here serving great food, beer, and amazing local wine.

With over 200 wines on our list and more than 60 of those are available by the glass, you’ll have plenty of opportunity to sample some fantastic wine with your lunch, dinner, or lazy grazing snack.

Our restaurant and bar menu is a sharing or tapas style and features a varied list of innovative dishes for you to experience together with friends and family. Alternatively, you can choose from the list of classic pub favourites.

Come and lose an afternoon or two in our beer gardens, taking in the views or relaxing in front of the fire… after all, this is a pub with history, in fact we had the first liquor license in Central Otago.

The historic nature of the pub’s name does indicate that we have accommodation on site, however there has been no accommodation since the late 90’s. This will be rectified soon,  so watch this space …
