Second time having lunch at this renewed restaurant. Great setting - pleasant atmosphere - correct music - beautiful lamb dish with perfectly matching pinot noir and very friendly, helpful staff. Highly recommended - will definitely return!

Beautiful surrounds. Pleasant views, friendly and helpful staff and a few good wines too. I had the duck salad which was awesome and my colleagues enjoyed their food too. Portion size is spot on. Not too much and not too little. Goldilocks would be happy.

This is a must for locals and travellers alike. We were entertaining a band from one of our events. The food was amazing - everyone had something different and it was all top class. The staff were friendly, helpful and extremely welcoming. The surroundings are beautiful. Highly recommended.

We stopped at this winery whilst on the Marlborough Wine Trail and were a little late for lunch so just had a couple of coffees. The service was great and we would like to have eaten there so definitely worth a visit. If you do make sure you go downstairs to the toilets where you can view the wine cellar... More

Having limited time while on a day off the Emerald Princess cruise, some of the locals recommended this winery to visit. The lunch menu, while not extensive, delivered beautiful food accompanied by suggested wine choices that hit the mark. The Venison and Lamb were magnificently prepared, while the Pumpkin Risotto was so good my wife wanted to lick the bowl!!!... More

It was an absolute pleasure to have such a beautiful lunch here in the stylish new surroundings. Attentive, friendly, professional service. Our meals were superb, including the delicious side dishes. Spectacular wines as always (try the Benmorven Chardonnay!) We will most definitely be back soon.

We had a wonderful lunch here last Sunday. Great menu and superb food. People in our party enjoyed the venison and the lamb dishes. The cheesecake was the best. Well done to the new team here in this wonderful environment.

We had been cycling on the amazing river trail and went in search of wither hills. It was worth it! Beautiful ambiance sitting under a wisteria arbor looking out on vines marching towards the distant hills. Friendly attentive service a little wait for amazing food and matching wines. We had two starters - pork belly and mussel fritters. Beautifully presented... More

Wither Hills was probably the best Marlborough restaurant we went to for matching good food with good wine. The venison was a food highlight especially when matched with their single vineyard Pinot Noir. The restaurant was nicely set out with plenty of space and good indoor and outdoor options. Service was friendly.

We went along having already eaten not realising how reasonably priced the meals would be here! We opted to do a wine tasting instead and were blessed with beautiful weather! The scenery is amazing and the place just oozes class! We bought a couple of bottles to the tasting was free - the hostess was also very knowledgeable and helpful... More
