The restaurant, which we have visited several times, is located in the historic National Hotel in the heart of Cambridge, adjacent to the Town Hall and overlooking the Town Clock.
The original hotel on the corner of Alpha Street & Lake Street was The Alpha Hotel, built in 1866 and destroyed by fire in 1912. The current version of the National Hotel ("The Nash" to Cambridge locals) was originally built in 1913 and, with a few modifications over the decades, has retained its elegant art deco style.
The quiet elegance and generous dimensions of the building enhance the contemporary, relaxed style of the restaurant. For decades the National Hotel has been pivotal in the social life of the residents of Cambridge. Alpha Street Kitchen & Bar carries on the tradition of a welcoming place to meet at any time of the day. www.alphast.co.nz...
COST: Transport $35.00: Lunch cost - your choice from the exciting menu.

Last weekend Paul took a Papamoa retirement village group on a 2–day trip to the wonderful Gibbs Farm & other North-Auckland venues.
Gibbs Farm is an open-air sculpture park containing the largest collection of large-scale sculptures in NZ.We had permission to drive around the park to help with mobility issues.
Prior to the park, the group viewed the gannet colony at Muriwai. A bit sparse on gannets! On Saturday, the group headed from our accommodation to the Matakana Farmers’ Market, before travelling on to Morris & James to view their beautiful range of hand-made pottery. Several hours were then spent exploring the gardens & galleries at the exceptional Sculptureum

En route for home we visited Chocolate Brown Chocolaterie for a tasting of their hand-made beautiful, award-winning chociolate

A really enjoyable tour & we’ll look forward to doing it again later in the year.
