Welcome to Church Hill Boutique Lodge & Restaurant

Church Hill Restaurant Limited is a proudly New Zealand owned and operated business that offers fully hosted accommodation and dining on Stewart Island, New Zealand. We have an emphasis on fresh local produce, homemade and prepared to order.

Your hosts are Deanne and Chris Sara, who re-established Church Hill Restaurant & Oyster Bar in 2012 and Church Hill Boutique Lodge & Restaurant in 2017.

"For us, it is all about our island and the experience we want our guests to take away with them."

Situated on the hill by the church we offer our guests wonderful views of the bay, the outer islands and the best of Stewart Island.

Church Hill is currently closed for the 2020-21 season. We will reopen around October 2021

We are currently taking lodge bookings for next season so please contact us should you want to stay. Our restaurant will cater primarily for the lodge guests next season and all lodge guests will have a table reserved at the restaurant each evening.

Other restaurant booking will only be taken on the day if there is availability.
