Home of 60 Beers
We always use fresh produce, locally sourced where possible, and like to showcase seasonal stars throughout. Combining classic cooking with creativity, we like to ‘smoke it and serve it’.
Our menu features CBK devotee favourites, such as juicy burgers, sensational smoked dishes, amazing steaks, and sensational small plates.
HOME OF 60 BEERS
We handpick the best of New Zealand craft beers and offer more than 60 different beers in each venue. Our favourites are Good George, Moa and Stoke beers, but we offer a changing selection which is determinedly Kiwi as. Of course, we also offer a solid line of wine, cocktails, spirits and non-alcohol options. If you need some advice on what might go well with your meal, just ask our friendly staff. They specialise in ingenious pairings.
You don’t know what flavour is until you’ve tried a cut of meat which is cold-smoked, then served on a sizzling STONEGRILL™. Some of the best cuts of meat are offered on the 400°C volcanic hot stone grill for you to cook to your liking. This is a truly unique way to dine, searing your cut, locking in the nutritional and flavoursome juices, ensuring you get a super tender and sensational tasting meal
A NOD TO NOSTALGIA
We are proud of New Zealand’s heritage and that’s where we looked for inspiration when we created CBK. We wanted to create a comfortable venue where people felt they could kick their shoes off and fully relax without sacrificing the quality of their meal or the choice available in terms of drinks.
We welcome young families, sports groups, tourists, corporate lunches and that romantic date. We have a special place in our hearts for the grandparents who love to bring their grandchildren in and talk about the old bicycle on display and the black and white pictures showing a New Zealand of days gone by.
It’s important to us that our guests feel welcome and comfortable. We hope you’ll remember us as a lively, cozy and unpretentious sanctuary in the city, where the service was brilliant, the food was exceptional and there were dozens of great Kiwi craft beers on offer.
Hidden in the back we have our smokers, the unique member of our crafty family, ready to 'smoke it and serve it' 24/7.
What makes it so finger lickin’ good?
The Meat - Top quality, free range, local cuts
The Rub - Before cooking we massage our meat with our own secret blend of herbs and spices to give it the unique flavours only found at CBK.
The Wood - Apple, Hickory or Maple each providing a unique taste infusion to your dinner!
STONEGRILL involves searing meat at high temperatures to lock in all the natural juices and nutrients. The stone is delivered to your table, giving you full control over the extent to which you want your meat cooked. This unique dining experience offers a taste beyond anything you’re likely to have ever experienced before.
And it’s healthy: all visible fat is trimmed from the cut of meat before it touches the grill and no oils are added during the cooking process.
