Don’t overlook Hotel Ashburton when you’re looking for a meal out, or accommodation for friends and family.
There’s been a quiet revolution going on at Hotel Ashburton over the last months, and you’ll be delighted to find that it is now quietly stylish, with refurbished rooms and a new winter menu that is both tempting and surprising.
Its always a good sign to walk into a busy restaurant – that’s the rule of thumb – so Hotel Ashburton’s in-house restaurant must be good. There’s a great vibe. Manager David Brown says the reason for the increased popularity has everything to so with the on-going emphasis on great service and extensive menu.
The new mains menu is spectacular, offering succulent steaks cooked to perfection, the very popular rack of lamb, melt-in-your-mouth lamb shanks as well as a selection of pork, chicken and fish dishes. It caters to all tastes.
To complement your meal, there’s also a revamped wine list with an emphasis on New Zealand wines including a number of boutique labels like Spy Valley. There are some rather sensational new reds on the list, and Asahi is a recent new addition to the beer selection. This is now available on tap, and is proving very popular, as are the selection of craft beers including Canterbury’s own Three Boys – well worth trying.
With the well-established team of dedicated chefs in the kitchen, functions and celebrations are easily and beautifully catered for. Menus are available on request, but David says it’s worth taking the time to chat with the staff and design a menu that specifically caters to your personal requirements.
