Due to the one in a hundred year amount of rainfall in Canterbury, our restaurants are currently closed for renovations. But never fear, we won’t let a little rain get us down – we’ll be back before you know it!

Madeline and Sean Brown welcome you to Stronechrubie Restaurant & Accommodation. Nestled in the township of Mount Somers, one hour’s drive from Christchurch, we are located near Mt Hutt Ski Area and Mt Sunday, the location of Edoras in ‘Lord of the Rings’.

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.
All dishes are prepared in our kitchen, including desserts, ensuring freshness and the highest class of presentation.

Please check out our opening hours and contact us to book.
We look forward to welcoming you!
