"Wonderful food, very fresh and tasty. Stone grill was amazing. We were a table of seven and everyone enjoyed mains and desserts. We found the staff attentive and happily accommodated some of our particular requirements and changes. Will definitely be dining here again."

What has been your proudest moment?

"Every day when you open the restaurant up & you realise that you are part of the community that supports you, the staff & our CBK,

It is truly an honour to earn the trust of the community, to see & meet the locals every week & make new friends along the way.

It is very cool when your locals bring their family down to meet you & experience our CBK."

Why did you get involved with CBK & Stonegrill?

"We have loved Stonegrill product & working with Tony Scott (owner of Stonegrill NZ & the CBK Brand).

I worked with Tony & Stonegrill as a Chef, 20 years ago, at the Brewer Arms Merivale. We have always found Stonegrill to be a fun & exciting part of our menus.

When we were looking at growing our first business we teamed up with trusted friends Tony, Stonegrill NZ & CBK Craft Bar & Kitchen. We thought that Kaiapoi & North Canterbury was the perfect place to start, our CBK Craft Bar & Kitchen & LOVED every day since."
