Market Place Restaurant & Bar

Inspired by local history, Market Place Restaurant & Bar pays pays tribute to the original centre of Christchurch, where the weekly markets created a place for the town to connect and exchange locally grown produce and meat.

Letting the fresh ingredients take centre stage, Market Place Restaurant showcases our local butcher, fishmonger, grocer and baker industries. Our experienced chef has created a market-style dining experience which showcases a selection of Canterbury’s finest and freshest market plates, served up in a rustic style, and designed to share. Continuing the shared theme, Market Place Restaurant offers up its signature dish ‘The Classic Roast’ – a ten hour slow cooked lamb shoulder and roast veges.


Market Place Restaurant & Bar is not just another hotel buffet, it’s stunning design elements and live cooking stations are curated to wow and inspire. Combined with our friendly local service it’s a dining experience to remember, and like all great breakfast buffets, you’ll come back for more. And more. We also offer an incredible á la carte breakfast menu if the buffet doesn’t tickle your fancy.
