We had a wonderful lunch here last Sunday. Great menu and superb food. People in our party enjoyed the venison and the lamb dishes. The cheesecake was the best. Well done to the new team here in this wonderful environment.

We had been cycling on the amazing river trail and went in search of wither hills. It was worth it! Beautiful ambiance sitting under a wisteria arbor looking out on vines marching towards the distant hills. Friendly attentive service a little wait for amazing food and matching wines. We had two starters - pork belly and mussel fritters. Beautifully presented... More

Wither Hills was probably the best Marlborough restaurant we went to for matching good food with good wine. The venison was a food highlight especially when matched with their single vineyard Pinot Noir. The restaurant was nicely set out with plenty of space and good indoor and outdoor options. Service was friendly.

The duck salad wad large and lovely,... More

The food was awesome. It serves just right on its price. The wither hills view is stunning and highly recommended for wine tour as they offer free grape picking too. I love the landscape so much. The off-putting here was the cheese platter as there are fruits that are rotten already and lots of dried fruits than fresh fruits. Nevertheless... More
