The Church Bistro.
Character dining at its best
The Church Bistro is housed in the original church building from the early 1900’s, and relocated from its original home, Taumarunui. The exposed kauri beams, classical joinery and original floor add to its charm and character.
You can expect to see simple Kiwi style, European inspired food, plus seasonal and regular specials.
