When it comes to places to eat in Motueka, we’ve got plenty of experience frequenting our local hospitality outlets. For a relatively small town, Motueka has an impressive list of local eateries to inspire your taste buds and TOAD Hall Motueka is nothing short of an institution when it comes to hospitality in the region. TOAD Hall started life as a fruit and veggie shop before making a name for itself for their real fruit ice creams (hint – they’re a must try).
When Angela Morris and Hamish Fletcher took over, they got to work immediately on fulfilling their vision to see TOAD Hall become the focal point of the community by creating family-friendly shared spaces and nourishing local food for the community.
Since then TOAD Hall has grown from strength to strength and is now recognised as one of Nelson Tasman’s most successful hospitality outlets. There is something for everyone at TOAD Hall – from the children’s playground which is built entirely from wood by the owners through to the award-winning beer from Townshend Brewery.
It’s not uncommon for people to get stuck gazing at the cabinet at TOAD Hall as its stacked with wild game pies, salads, croissants, raw cakes and other tasty treats that are enough to make you drool in anticipation. TOAD Hall also now produce cold press juices and smoothies, alongside their retail selection including local craft chocolate from the likes of Hogarths and fresh farm milk from Oaklands. They have a range of fresh produce and a tap room on site for purchasing local craft beer and wine from the local whanau business Tohu.
In case that wasn’t enough to convince you of a visit to TOAD Hall, during the summer months they have an impressive lineup of local, national and international artists coming through for their evening dining and music nights on a Friday, Saturday and Sunday. Enjoy their pizza and evening dining menu alongside the selection of craft beers brewed onsite – enough said!
