Welcome to the Tavern

The Gibbston Tavern sits in the heart of Central Otago in the deep south of New Zealand and has a rich history going back to the gold mining days of the 1800’s.                          The Tavern has recently changed hands and as the new owner and operator, I am excited to be currently working on a new menu including delicious platters of local produce and pizza options from our handcrafted pizza oven. We are also working on a new beverage list that not only celebrates the best of local world class wines the area is famous for, but also a diverse range of local craft beers.  We are of course still open 7 days a week while working on these exciting new offerings and would love to hear from you regarding your upcoming event so we can create a package just for you. We can cater to any function from birthdays to weddings.

Contact us to discuss your next get together.


I’m really looking forward to sharing the freshly updated Gibbston Tavern with you next time you’re passing.

Gemma Finlay.
