Shared the meat board and cheese board with my fiancée (both come with fresh sourdough bread). Everything was either produced in the restaurant or locally procured and was delicious. This restaurant also has an impressive selection of local wines and beers. The service was great and we had a wonderful dinner!

Hi, i had a Pinot Rose at this bar and it was the most horrible drink I ever had. Probably a cask wine - it was awful. When we complained they were not sympathetic. Terrible service.

I stumbled across Scotch tonight with my partner and had a fantastic experience. We ate the cloudy bay clams, the buttermilk chicken & the ox cheek gnocchi. All of them were amazing. The topping on the clams, incredible. The citrus dipping sauce with the chicken, incredible. The caramelised gnocchi, incredible. Despite not thinking it could get much better, we soon... More

Found Scotch by accident, but thoroughly enjoyable experience. We thought we'd have a glass of the local wine but ended up having more and eating as well. Well the sun was shining, we were sat outside and everything was relaxed....until the alarm went off in the shop across the road. Good wine and good food - tapas style and comes... More

This is a restaurant that obviously cares about the quality of its food and it's wine list also reflects this. A small menu is usually a good sign, and we had a memorable meal there, enjoying the ambience of the place.

We stopped here for a glass of wine and a beer. Sat in the sun and enjoyed the "world go by". Nice location for a casual refreshment on a sunny day.

Great wine selection. The owner Dan is cool. He made great suggestions for my food and wine pairing. I do recommend more than one person as the food is sized for sharing. A great find in Blenheim!

I had heard about Scotch Bar through friends who had visited Blenheim and was told to go. I wasn't let down. The food was sensational. I had the Rib Eye with a yummy polenta and my lady had the lamb rack. All perfectly washed down with a Malbec which was surprising as some venues in NZ only stock NZ wines.... More
