Orchard Garden

The Orchard Garden is a large country garden, licensed café and function centre situated between Alexandra and Clyde.

The café provides contempory casual café lunches and home made desserts, cakes and slices. Indulge in the seared lamb fillet with warm kumara and potato salad accompanied by a local pinot gris and then a slice of lemon meringue pie and great coffee.

The Original mud brick walls of the old fruit packing shed have been exposed inside the cafe to create a unique dining area which retains many features from the stone fruit grading and packing days. The old fruit grader serves as the front bar and the chunky nailing up bench as a sideboard. The café also acts as the tasting venue for four local vineyards and guests are welcome to select wines for a tasting tray.

The café opens to the garden where there are outdoor tables for dining in the courtyard and garden areas. Mature trees provide much needed shade in the hot Central Otago summers an a large open fire warms the area on colder days.

There is a seperate dining area called "the old tractor shed" which opens through french doors to its own private garden courtyard, this is avaliable for larger private groups by reservation
