The Millhouse menu is a divine blend of local, seasonal produce, coupled with a passion and knowledge of food.

The Millhouse is the only restaurant in the South Island to offer rare Wagyu Beef from Japan on the menu and our Organic Southland Lamb is also unique to The Millhouse.
In order to reflect seasonal changes, the menu changes regularly, so please ask reception or the restaurant for the most up to date menu.
