Christmas functions? We don't just do them... we do 'em good... list yours today.

We have lovingly refurbished the historic Bush Inn Hotel, situated on the corner of Waimairi and Riccarton Road. The “Bush” is a Heritage Building, protected by the Historic Places Trust. Instantly recognizable, the façade has changed little since it was established in 1865, when it doubled as a hotel and horse training stables. 

Join us for a drink in our beautiful Johnny Cash Bar- admire the memorabilia and relax to the sounds from “The Man in Black” and other Country Music legends whilst waiting for your table. 

Our restaurant seats around 160 guests and in addition we offer the use of multiple function rooms that can accommodate most groups sizes. Simply give us a call with regards to your needs and we’ll look after the rest. We also have an outside dining area that will seat 20-25 guests. 

We offer extensive parking space for your convenience and any occasion is welcome - simply get in touch and we'll look after you. Children are always welcome – they have their own menu and don't forget to tell us if it's your birthday!
