Angus Road Eatery

Angus Road Eatery is the winery restaurant at Mystery Creek Wines – a converted wooden homestead perched high on the banks of the Waikato River and surrounded by the Mystery Creek home block, a 5ha vineyard producing award winning wines.

The 85-seat restaurant was opened in November 2007 and has been an immediate hit with both locals and visitors to the Waikato.

Angus Road Eatery is located just 12 minutes from Hamilton, Cambridge and Te Awamutu on the Corner of Mystery Creek Rd and Angus Rd, Ohaupo.

The moment you arrive the ambience grabs you, from the floor to ceiling schist chimney housing a huge open fire to the sprawling decks and the secluded dining areas looking out over the river and surrounding countryside.

Winery Restaurant

The Winery Restaurant is housed in the original stables. The old timbers have been retained and the atmosphere is intimate and relaxing. A feature of the restaurant is the courtyard dining area , a little enclave in a garden setting. In summertime a classical guitarist plays in this area on sunny Sundays. Local artists also exhibit their work at the restaurant. In winter the open fire warms the atmosphere.

The winery restaurant offers a wonderful range of inspirational fresh seasonal food. Everything is made on the premises. All the herbs and many of the vegetables are organically grown in the winery garden or sourced locally.

The menu features popular platters, seafood, soups, vegetarian dishes, brunch and wholesome meals for the hungry. The menu changes frequently to match the seasons. Delicious desserts round off the experience. Of course the food is designed to complement the range of wines. Much of the produce is also available in the winery shop.
