Colenso is savvy, deservedly popular AND a bit tricky to find.

Once through the gate, and up the path, you're there.

We are open Monday through Saturday.

We start at 8.30 for breakfast.

Care and attention is paid to coffee service. Lunch kicks off at noon. Dinner service runs Friday & Saturday, by reservation, from 6pm and is a really delicious way to spend an evening. We have a well selected range of wines on our list and in our 'Eurocave' with 8 wines by the glass and carafe featuring great value and talented producers form near and far.

We always like to know you are joining us & reservations are most welcome. 

We have a wonderful wood-fire for the winter weather. Join us...
