We have 8 Chalets set on 3 acres of landscaped grounds offering a private and peaceful stay. We can also accommodate weddings, functions and team retreats. We can tailor packages to suit your occasion and are more than happy to make activity arrangements for you. Some of the things to do in the area include hunting, fishing, ecotours and helicopter trips, please contact us and we can help with your plans.

Sean, our award-winning Chef de Cuisine, has extensive experience in the industry with a Menu that presents diners in our a la carte restaurant with a classic New Zealand cuisine, featuring locally sourced ingredients including lamb, beef, salmon and venison.

Our Bistro restaurant offers casual family dining with a modern twist on the kiwi bistro dining experience.

Happiest of birthdays to this great fella!
Quiet day ahead for him, hanging with all his gals at home whilst in self isolation.

Very surreal around here at the mo, restaurant closed & accommodation only open to ‘essential workers’.
Always wondered what it’s like to have weekends off...ours are now spent eating and drinking our way through Stronechrubie’s stock, the odd walk around the block, plenty of puzzles & time to catch up on odd jobs.
We are enjoying teaching the girls more in the kitchen & adding to their cooking skills.
Who knows when this madness will all be over but tell ya what we can’t wait to see all our customers & friends.

OPEN!
Don’t be shy & stay away, now is the time small businesses like ours need your custom.
We have to have the peeps through the restaurant door to make it viable to stay open.
Tables are not close together, we are awesome at sanitising & our staff are not sick.
Takeaway meals also available.

Just remember all those vouchers we gave to ‘your’ local community fundraisers...nows the time to give some love back 🥰🥰

We are concerned like everyone else to protect our staff & customers from the virus.
Please if you are unwell & have a booking with us let us know so we can cancel your booking.
We have had extremely good hygiene & sanitation policies in place for a long time & will keep being vigilant with this.

In the meantime we are open as per usual & love seeing all our ‘well’ customers, don’t leave us hanging in this downturn.

Maddy, Sean & all the great staff @ the Crubie.
