There’s an apt new name for the repaired and reopened restaurant in Riccarton House: Local. The restaurant focuses on seasonal and rustic food that’s clocked up low food miles, with many of the ingredients found in your tasty brunch or lunch having come directly from the popular Christchurch Farmers’ Market that’s held every Saturday morning in the historic manor’s grounds. You can also spot fresh herbs, salad greens and other seasonal produce used by the restaurant sprouting up from the five planter boxes outside the open working kitchen. It’s hard to get too much more local than that! It’s a red-and-blackout on the drinks menu too, with Wigram Beer, Pegasus Bay Wines, Hummingbird Coffee and the Aroha Elderflower range all on the list. Dine al fresco in the courtyard on sunny days, or cosy up in a heritage room with open fire and views over the Avon river. Local. at Riccarton House, open Wed - Fri 10am –3pm, Sat/Sun 9am – 4pm.www.localatriccartonhouse.co.nz...

Bringing some Victorian grandeur back to the city (hurray!) after an all-too-long quake-enforced absence, Riccarton House is now fully restored, which means Riccarton House Bistro has re-opened to serve up delectable delights for both lunch and dinner in magnificent surroundings. Recent offerings on the regularly-updated menu include the angus rib eye steak with fondant potatoes, pickled vegetables, and rosemary jus – please, try not to drool on your keyboard – while if you’re looking for a fantastic lunch option on a weekend afternoon, it’s tough to go past the pulled pork sandwich with slaw and smoked capsicum aoli.Christchurch colonial history never tasted so delicious! www.riccartonhousebistro.co.nz...
