Brinkley Resort Mt Hutt has quality accommodation, modern conference facilities and a multiple award winning restaurant that has earned the reputation as one of the best dining experiences in the Canterbury region.

If you haven’t dined at The Famous Brinkley's Restaurant in Methven, Mt Hutt Village, then it’s about time to see for yourself what everybody is talking about. If you are visiting the region from overseas than make sure you come in and enjoy our fine food and wine and our well known hospitality.

Pre-dinner drinks in the bar allow you to enjoy your favourite beverage or sample our wine after which you can be shown to your table by our friendly staff. We encourage our guests to linger and we are proud that our restaurant allows you to relax and enjoy the fine food and wine we offer. The open fire and modern comfortable environment combine especially well with the fine food and wines. 

Shackleton's Bar and Grill is again the recipient of the NZ Beef & Lamb Excellence Award for 2017, one of only 163 restaurants from across New Zealand to receive this. Our chef, James Loughnane, utilises the best local Canterbury and New Zealand ingredients to create spectacular dishes where you will want to return time and time again.  Beef & Lamb New Zealand CEO, Rod Slater, says the Awards have helped to take the guesswork out of choosing where to dine.

HOW TO FIND US

It will take you just over an hour to reach Methven Village from Christchurch International Airport - Driving south from Christchurch, take State highway 1 to Rakaia. Turn right at the big salmon, stay on the main road and you will drive straight into Methven. Brinkley Resort is the first place you will see on your right as you enter the town limits. Alternatively, take the Inland Scenic Route on SH72 through Horarata and Rakaia Gorge and turn left at the first signpost you see (at Mt Hutt Station) to Methven via the alternative route. You will drive straight into the Main Street of Methven - turn left just after the Mobil Gas Station and follow the road around to the left again. The entrance to the Resort is about a hundred metres on your left just past the paddock with the tame sheep!

Helicopter Transfer

Brinkley Resort has a helipad on site and can arrange helicopter transfers from Christchurch or from other locations. Please enquire directly if you are interested and we can provide a price.
