Chef’s Table Dinner | 16 June – 23 July 2017

Wanaka Chef's Table 2017

Rippon is once again teaming up with Chef Sam Metcalfe for a 5-week opening of The Chef’s Table this winter at Rippon Hall, and we are VERY excited to say the least. Last year this was a big hit among locals and visitors alike.

Think roaring fire, local wine list, communal tables and absolutely delicious sharing plates!  Every Sunday afternoon from 4pm there’s also live music. Back again this year is the chef’s table itself in the Rippon Hall kitchen, seating up to 10 people where you can watch Chef Sam and his team working their magic. 

Chef’s Table will be open 6 days a week (closed Mondays) from 4pm for après-ski drinks and dinner. Bookings are strongly recommended to avoid disappointment. Larger lunches available where possible with prior bookings. This is one is a truly special and unique experience to delve into local life in Wanaka while you’re here – not to be missed!
