Connected to an airy outside deck surrounded by 100-year old oak trees, The Landing Restaurant provides a fantastic relaxed dining setting. This is premium pub fare with a sophisticated edge, served with the down-to-earth charm of a true rural establishment. Our talented chefs insist on using only the freshest, premium quality, local and regional ingredients. These creations are matched with a handpicked cellar of fine wine & a wide range of refreshing premium & craft ales. Whether you’re settling down for a romantic meal, catching up with friends or treating the family, The Landing is a place you’ll love, and love to return to.

The Landing is an la carte restaurant with tables that seat groups from couples through to groups of 14. If you have a larger group, we may be able to accommodate you at a quieter time of the day across two or more tables.

For the dining pleasure of all our guests we request that larger groups meet first in The Portage Bar to welcome everyone first, then remain seated at the table throughout the meal in The Landing.

We also respectfully request that parents keep children at the table with them throughout the meal. We provide activity bags to help keep young ones occupied and toys that can come to the table.


Everything is fresh at The Landing, including our menus which we change seasonally. Our ingredients are sourced from local products whenever possible. We are passionate about cuisine and enjoy bringing you interesting choices that you’d expect from a leading New Zealand gastro pub. We prepare all the meals from scratch and we hope you will enjoy the selection.

The Riverhead is situated in one of New Zealand’s oldest wine growing regions and we’re proud to showcase our local wineries. Some weave their magic with grapes from the various regions of New Zealand while others grow their own ‘just around the corner’. We’re proud to offer you our selection of locally crafted wines.

Throughout its long history, The Riverhead has offered unpretentious genuine kiwi hospitality….we intend to continue in this tradition.
