Our Food

You don't have to go far in this part of the world to find wonderful produce. For us it is all about showcasing the product in a wonderful setting.

Church Hill food is all about Stewart Island and Southland and that is something we don’t need to apologise for, after all, we are surrounded by some of the best produce in the world.

When you combine great produce with a desire to deliver quality cuisine, in a quality setting, with friendly and personal service you get a restaurant like Church Hill.

We are very proud of where we have taken our restaurant and invite you to share it with us during your time on Stewart Island.

Food should always have a story; for us that story starts and ends with "homemade". We have a personal connection to growing it, sourcing it, maybe it was caught by my uncle on the west coast or maybe we waded in the cold waters to gather it ourselves.

We change our menu regularly to reflect what is available on the day. Sometimes things are not available for seasonal reasons, or the weather when it comes to fishing, or maybe we run out and await more, so please be aware that the listed items may differ from what is available during your visit.
