The AGA Kitchen

Cassels & Sons at The Tannery presents the AGA Kitchen private dining room, of indulgence and fine food for you to host intimate corporate functions, small weddings, or celebrate a special family event. The ‘old world’ inspired style combined with a fresh take on New Zealand cuisine is the perfect setting for your next festivity.

The iconic and exquisite AGA creates a unique and timeless ambiance of refined luxury that takes the concept of the chef’s table to a new gourmet level. The bespoke open plan kitchen with its British AGA oven, French tiling and comfortable, on site-built solid oak furniture, are taking pride of place where Executive Chef Michael Falls and his international team cook your dinner to perfection.

All menus change seasonally and are tailored for our guests and any specific dietary requirements. Our chefs take advantage of the unique qualities of the AGA oven: the cast-iron heart guarantees a very gentle cooking process that preserves the dish’s flavour, juice, and goodness. The AGA releases a distinctive gentle, welcoming warmth into our private dining room creating a unique atmosphere that your guests will cherish.

Booked exclusively for business breakfasts, lavish lunches, tempting high teas and delicious dinners for up to 50 guests (up to 80 for cocktail receptions), Cassels & Sons assures an undisturbed dining experience in serene privacy. Additional services such as birthday cakes, flower arrangements, music, AV systems and projectors, or a photographer can be arranged with our Events Manager.

A minimum charge may apply depending on the day of the week and number of guests.
