Fairlie's biggest and best family dining


The Red Stag Restaurant serves traditional Kiwi classic meals for A La' Carte evening dining and buffets for functions and other special events, with a focus on top quality food and dining experience. Walk-ins are welcome but we strongly recommend booking for groups of 4 or more, as the restaurant can become busy during dinner service. .

We're located in the historic 130 year old Rimuwhare Homestead - about 5 minutes walk from the center of Fairlie, on the road west towards Lake Tekapo. Our fantastic site can accommodate up to 100 people for seated dining, and up to 150 guests for casual functions outdoors on our lawn and inside. We don't charge for venue hire, only for the catered food and drink for the day. We can handle a range of special requirements so please don't hesitate to give us a call to discuss your event.

We also offer Bed and Breakfast accommodation in our self-contained apartment above the restaurant and of course invite guests to enjoy dinner in the evening as well! You can contact us directly by phone or email for booking enquiries.
