About
Restaurant 1840 is a fully licensed unique dining experience. Renovations on this former Methodist church began in 2016 following 10 years of neglect. The lovingly restored building has maintained its heritage, all tables have been converted from original church pews, stained glass has been designed to replicate the originals and even the altar has been restored in the reception area.
