In our cafe, we choose to use the highest quality wild game and free range meats. We also grow and seek the healthiest, freshest local produce we can find, to ensure all of our meats not only nourish the people eating them, but the community that grew, caught and harvested them.
Just like the 1800's, we want to create a place where locals and visitors can gather, dine, relax and socialise. Hence we have regular music nights, we produce healthy nourishing food and have created a natural space for you to relax and unwind.
We are a licensed premises with a variety of local beers, ciders and wine available.
We also have a large variety of Gluten-free options available and make every effort to cater to your dietary needs.
Trip Advisor review
“We were a large group with some people gluten or dairy/egg intolerant. All of our needs were understood and catered for. The food was tasty and well presented. The seating options are varied and the children had places to play and indoor activity options. The shop provided a great range of wholesome food and other natural products to buy and there was information about other local activities/providers. “

“TOAD Hall oozes character and charm, with exposed wooden beams, polished wooden floors, outdoor clay oven, billowing trees with lots of birds and a cute little bridge leading from the cafe to the treehouse eatery with it's warm fire. The best part for me though is the real, organic and fresh food”
Outdoor Evening Dining
T.O.A.D Halls famous Live music and outdoor summer evenings have become so entrenched in our community that we have decided to continue through the winter. Supporting local musicians and offering delicious winter fare on Friday and Saturday nights.
We will feature some of our great local musicians on Friday nights and have relaxed background music on Saturday nights. The fires will be blazing and our dining room toasty warm, regardless of the weather outside.
Trip Advisor review
“The food was delicious and prepared by a chef at the outdoor kitchen. It was fun to watch the chef - it was like watching a musical conductor. My husband and son had the steak and I had the bacon wrapped scallops. Everything was excellent, especially the presentation. Truly looked like a piece of art! We all splurged on dessert and it was worth every calorie. Highly recommend this restaurant.”
Great for children
We pride ourselves on being a great place for children and families to enjoy. Our playground is fully equipped with a range of swings and equipment, which is all made here. Even our famous tree house was made by staff at T.O.A.D Hall!
Our playground equipment is made using safe, high quality, non-toxic products that enhance children's play and protect our environment.
Our play area has been so popular with families that in 2012, T.O.A.D Hall won the Little Treasures magazine award for most kid-friendly cafe in all of New Zealand!
TOAD Tap Room and Brewery
This year we welcomed Martin and Keri Townshend owners of TOWNSHEND Brewery. All beer in our Cafe is from the new Brewery made right here on site.We have also opened a T.O.A.D Tap room with 8 pouring taps so you can now all take your favorite beer, cider or locally made wine home with you.
