Had lunch at Apiary Sat 5th December. One of our favourite places and our recent visit was as good as always. With current tier 3 restrictions I was expecting to be on the juice, but they had a really good non alcohol drinks list with...More

We went as a party of 12 for a Christmas meal and had a great time. There was something for everyone and the staff checked in advance regarding any allergies anyone may have. Everyone enjoyed their food.

Not long home from a family dinner at The Apiary. A cozy little Newington restaurant I've passed thousands of times but never ventured in. That was definitely my mistake. It was midweek in January, before payday, so the restaurant was fairly quiet. There was a...More

Have a look at their website, it says 99% gluten free, and that they can also adapt dishes to suit. You can also see typical menus in the website. The staff are extremely accommodating so you could even email them in... More
