After the earthquake it took 5 years to rebuild the building. To be honest, they did the most incredible job to make it look original with the pressed metal ceilings and the carved wooden stair case. I think due to Covid19 it's only open for functions

They he the best buttermilk scones around! We usually get there just after 9am when they are fresh out of the oven - highly recommended.

Stunning gardens and a property that has the Avon river as one of its borders. Mona Vale gardens exceeded expectations. The grounds are easy to walk around and has many pathways and garden sections. The rose garden and fernery were favourites. A gorgeous bridge over the river is lovely to sit beside to watch the birdlife. I can see why it is popular as a wedding reception location. We enjoyed a delicious Devonshire tea in the grounds of the homestead where the cafe/restaurant is. Lovely afternoon, would recomend a visit while in Christchurch.

Our enjoyable Sunday lunch far exceeded our expectations with food beautifully cooked & presented, servings were more than generous & "doggy bags" were required. The restaurant setting is lovely with attractive views over the gardens. Definitely recommend a visit

This is beautiful and I spent a long time enjoying the ambience along Mona Vale- The historic house is amazing and if inclined you can have coffee or a meal there but you can look around the house and take a picnic nearby so you can just enjoy being there for no cost. Apparently sometimes in the weekends music is played on the grounds which would add to the experience but as we went during the week we were captivated by the beautiful gardens the lovelys steam and the lovely houses overlooking the park.
