Oamaru’s Star & Garter Restaurant

Oamaru is the proud home of the Star & Garter restaurant, one of New Zealand’s oldest restaurants, serving continuously for 100 years! Unlike many other restaurants in the area, the Star & Garter is open seven days a week, from 10am until late, including public holidays (and they don’t charge a surcharge on those days!).

The menu of the Star & Garter is full of traditional Kiwi delights, from excellent fish and chips, to lamb’s fry, to soups and salds, and everything in between. And their prices are very reasonable, especially when you consider the size of the portions. On the walls of the restaurant you can view countless photos of wedding parties that have taken place over the years here, and there’s even several Steampunk items on display. As though all that were not enough to entice diners here, the welcome from Lisa and her team is always friendly and welcoming, so there’s really no reason not to pop in.

The Star & Garter is located just around the corner from the Oamaru i-Site information office, on Itchen Street at the edge of the Victorian Historic Precinct. And here’s a wee video of the restaurant to further whet your appetite:
