Bannockburn Hotel – Wine Country Restaurant & Bar

420 Bannockburn Road

This iconic wine-country restaurant and bar serves up sharing tapas plates or traditional meals with great service. The wine list features over 200 wines, with more than 40 by the glass.

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 40 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 menu is a sharing or tapas style with some more traditional classic dishes. Come and lose an afternoon or two in our beer gardens, taking in the views or relaxing in front of the fire… and take a breath – after all, this is a restaurant with history, in fact we were granted the first liquor license in Central Otago.

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
