The Hilltop Tavern, which is 470 metres above sea level, is famous for its view and is worth a stop if making a trip to Akaroa from Christchurch.
The Tavern, which is located at 5207 Christchurch Akaroa Road (SH 75) is open 5 day a week; Wednesday 10 am – 4pm, Thursday to Saturday 10 am – close, Sunday 10 am – 4 pm.
Even if the Tavern is closed it is still worth pulling into the car park to check out the view.
The original Hilltop building burnt down in 1930. A new building was built in 1931, which still stands today.
Hilltop Tavern serves a range of meals including wood-fried pizzas, fish & chips, nachos, burgers, salmon, prawns and ribs. They also have a breakfast menu and do a range of cafe cabinet style food.
