The Bannockburn Hotel – Wine Country Restaurant & 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, landscapes and mountain scenery in the world.
We’ve seen the Gold Rush of the 1860’s, the Chinese settlements have come and gone, the valley has flooded, dams have been built and we’re still here serving great food, cold beer, and amazing local wine.
With over 200 wines on our list and more than 60 of those available by the glass, you’ll have plenty of opportunity to sample some fantastic wine and craft beer with your lunch, dinner, or lazy grazing snack.
Our restaurant and bar menu is a sharing or tapas style (Take a look) and features a varied list of dishes from around the world. Designed for you to experience together with friends and family.
Tapas are a wide variety of appetizers, or snacks, in Spanish (or nowadays global) cuisine. They may be cold (such as mixed olives and cheese) or warm ( slow cooked meats, bite sized flavoursome snacks) Your meal will generally encompass several dishes of varying styles and flavours.
Don’t be put off by the small size of some tapas, a sharing meal can be very filling but above all else it is a supremely social and fun meal. Alternatively, please feel free to choose from our classic pub food favourites.
Our Cromwell Restaurant offers Vegetarian, Gluten free and Vegan meals – Please call ahead to confirm vegan options as they take time to prepare in advance.
Come and lose an afternoon or two in our beer gardens, enjoying some of the best pub food, tapas, wine and craft beer in Central Otago.
Take in the views or relax in front of the fire… and take a breath – after all, this is a pub with history, in fact we were granted the first liquor license in Central Otago.
We’ve renovated the building slowly over the last couple of years and have created a warm, cozy and above all friendly atmosphere for our Cromwell restaurant – we love it and we hope you do to.
The historic nature of our name does indicate that we have accommodation on site, however there has been no accommodation since the late 90’s. We’re working towards rectifying this, so watch this space …
We’re so fortunate to live in a beautiful part of the world – If you’re planning on visiting the region, want to get to know us a little bit more by seeing who and what we care about or if you just love a good landscape, check out our Instagram feed.
You’ll see our travels, some beautiful landscapes across Cromwell, Bannockburn, Central Otago and some amazing tapas, pub food and great wine – Hungry yet?
