We came across to Blenheim for the Food and Wine festival. It was also Valentine's day......We were staying at Omaka heights B and B (See my review) and decided to try Renwick 1st for food before travelling further to Blenheim as we thought the latter would be really busy (which we discovered later was true). We went first into the bar which was very busy and noisy and worse still bad karioke....but then we discovered the restaurant next door. Same kitchen but much much quieter. We were pleasantly suprised at the menu and everything seemed to be prepared to order. I had a smoked chicken fettucine carbonara which was delicious but unfortunately couldn't finish because the portion was so large (husband managed to though!). He had beer battered fish which he said was wonderful and the batter was nice and light. The waitress was helpful and friendly.
This place was a great find, definitely return when we next stay in the area.
