Dinnertime is the hero of this Redwood destination, where degustation dining centres around classic cuisine, done well. While Chillingworth Road is open for C4 Coffee Co coffee and cafe-style dining all day, and also serves an a la carte dinner menu - it is in the elegant rear dining room where the real foodie magic happens. Award winning chef Darren and restaurant manager Leanne are the dynamic husband and wife duo behind Chillingworth Road.

Located unassumingly in the upper Cranford Street strip mall, Chillingworth Road has a bustling daytime atmosphere which transforms into something more intimate come evening. Evening diners can choose from five-, seven- or nine-course degustation options, with dishes served in the elegant formal dining room adorned with chandeliers, plush seating and dark wooden tables. The culinary style at Chillingworth Road is classic European fare influenced by seasonal New Zealand flavours and ingredients - including fish caught by Darren’s dad in Akaroa, and custom-grown vegetables by a farmer friend of the chefs - accompanied by a mainly New Zealand wine list.
