We frequently visit Nosh for the great food. Plenty of menu and cabinet options. Suitable for kids too. Indoor and outdoor dining options in a lovely setting. Extra points from me for a great supply of gluten free options.

Very good- had a savory muffin with a delicious broccoli salad and my husband had the lamb sandwich (kebab) that he really liked. Would definitely recommend it. We are outside in the gardens which were sunny and beautiful though a bit windy.

Located just off the main highway in central Ashburton, Nosh is a great option for an afternoon out. It was slightly rainy when we visited so we we ate inside, which also co-exists with a wool and yarn shop in a historic homestead. There are other shopping options nearby, which are mainly tailored at the arts & craft clientele. Within... More
