I have visited Ormlie Lodge Restaurant for a high tea with relatives last Sunday, what a delight. We sat out on the veranda on a sunny Hawkes Bay afternoon and enjoyed a delicious high tea. The food looked fantastic and tasted beautiful. It is a great place to celebrate baby showers, hen's party, birthday's etc. If you dont visit Ormlie... More

My mother and I came for lunch at Ormlie. We sat looking out at the gorgeous grounds in very warm surroundings. We loved everything. The food was exceptional. We had three courses for lunch and each was presented beautifully. Each dish tasted devine! Staff very helpful and friendly. Couldn't fault anything. We will definately come again and recommend to friends.

Dear Chippie_7, Further to our conversation, resulting from the email sent to Ormlie I can again only apologise for the booking made on the incorrect day. As we discussed, we set about rectifying the missed booking by offering a stunning afternoon sweet treat platter and complimentary drinks. I personally saw your party when you exited your vehicle, therefore I would... More

My wife & I recently dined at Ormlie Lodge. The food was delicious, flavours were amazing & presentation spectacular. This is one of the best meals we have eaten in Hawke's Bay. Well done to Chef Andy Glover, Anna & team.

Went to high tea for a 60th birthday, paid £60 as a couple. What we received was cold coffee, limited milk available. No staff identifiable, as none wearing uniform. The high tea was scant in quantity. The food was stale. The presentation and quality was similar to a local Asian bakery. There was no flair or food that was amazing.... More

This is one of my husband's favourite restaurants. He loves the gracious old decor and the food. We had some friends we were catching up with and needed a restaurant where we would be able to hear each other talk. Ormlie was perfect. The food was also interesting and good.

Visited Ormlie Lodge last night for dinner and I must say it was brilliant. The meal was prepared by Andy and of his usual high standard. The wine of choice was from Abbey Cellars, as a suggestion try the Passion Rose, superb local drop, best Rose ever. Congratulations to Anna and her team, what a great location at long last.... More
