Please note this was cellar door only and not the restaurant. My husband and I visited today on a boutique wine tour and Murdoch James was the first winery we went to...and the best! The selection of wines available to taste was quite extensive and...More

The restaurant is set in a beautiful rural setting, with a view over a portion of southern Wairarapa countryside. The ambience of the dining room is of a by-gone age. It has a large deck off one end, perfect for a lovely sunny Wairarapa day....More

Thank you for your review. We are of course disappointed that your experience was let down by poor service. The Holiday period is a busy time, and unfortunately, we have been short-staffed. Although not an excuse for poor service, it does put pressure on those...More

An awesome place, they looked after our big group really well. We changed a few things last minute, but the professional team at bloom handled it with out a hitch. Great meal, great time, would recommend bloom to everyone.

Description
Bloom Restaurant is located just south of the beautiful Martinborough Wine Village at Murdoch James Estate vineyard, one of New Zealand's most highly regarded Pinot Noir producers. Just 10 minutes drive from the town square and located in a stunning elevated setting with panoramic views, Bloom offers a range of dining options, or just a coffee and/or a glass of wine to relax with after an afternoon exploring nearby vineyards. Sit on the deck in the summer months and watch the river trickle by at your feet and the grapes growing nearby. Or, in Winter, sit indoors by the crackling fire, and enjoy a slow, relaxing meal. Our cuisine is always sourced locally and only the freshest ingredients are used. For a sample of our menu, check our website, or call for more information.
