The Latest

  • 2017 – THE YEAR OF ‘THE HOF

    Happy New Year from the team at The ‘Hof! We hope your 2017/Year of the Rooster/Hof is off to a cracking start. We celebrated the start of the year and warmer weather by dropping our awesome new summer menu – if you haven’t been in to try it yet you need to add this culinary tour de force to your gastronomic to do list ASAP! Fred has been weaving his culinary alchemy to create a line-up of tasty new dishes to try (think summer crunch salad, steamed mussels Creole, an epic big breakfast and decadent Belgian Chocolate Sundae) that’s perfect for the hot nights and sunny afternoons (see the full menus below). Speaking of hot nights, Valentine’s Day is coming, and we’re giving all couples that pre-books and dines with a main meal each on February 14 a FREE decadent chocolate dessert to share – lock in the love now to take advantage of this sweet ending offer! We’re also opening on Waitangi Day (Monday, 6 February) from 12 noon, and, in true ‘Hof fashion there’s NO surcharge – that would just be un-Kiwi (and un-Belgian)!
