Was taken to John Hill Estate Winery as a surprise birthday lunch by some friends. Not only a gorgeous drive from Howick though lovely countryside but what a treat when we got there. We fell in love with the delightful setting and the simple dwelling. We had a delicious meal and delectable wines from the vineyard (little tastes of the different varieties made our difficult choice much easier). The service was subtle and efficient. We had a great day and we all spoke of visiting again and introducing more friends to this delight.

Meal with friends. Lovely environment but disappointing meal. All salad and hardly any chicken. Although it was a lunch special I wouldn't go there again.

This is a fantastic little vineyard situated just out of clevedon. We spent a lovely summers afternoon drinking wine and eating fantastic food. I would definitely go back again

Been here before the food is still wonderful although light on portion size.The ambience is lovely but still the service lets them down.When asked if I can have a little more time to peruse the menu the answer was no.The wine didn't arrive and the plates we had to ask to have cleared .What a shame.No different from last year so not just a bad day.
