The food philosophy at Five Stags restaurant is to create simple yet succulent dishes using fresh local produce, meat and seafood.
“Impressive plates of food and good hearty meals showcasing some of New Zealand’s favourite dishes is what the Five Stags is becoming known for,” says The Gate general manager Glen Christiansen.
Open for lunch and dinner the restaurant takes advantage of The Gate’s expansive gardens for outside entertainment.
“The outside area is very popular for meeting with friends at long tables in the sun and for relaxed weekend socialising. We do occasional live music with local bands and musicians and can easily cater for large groups of people, friends and families.”
Black Panther pizzas cooked in an authentic pizza oven are menu favourites. With six flavoursome toppings and more to come, the Kiwi style pizzas have developed a local cult following either for dine in or take out.
