Every time I have been into craft we have received amazing service, great beer and exceptional food. On Saturday we went in with a large group and they were super accomodating on very short notice. We were looked after by one of the owners and...he was incredible. Absolutely love it, couldn’t recommend it any more highlyMore

We visited at 9pm on Friday night and the place was busy, we had not booked but were promptly seated by a lovely gentleman and served. Within 5 minutes of arriving we were on the balcony with a nice cold beer, hazy ipa and pilsner....What a way to start our trip to Christchurch, Oxford terrace is definitely the place to be if your looking for some great food and drinks. We recommend the Buffalo chicken burger with the best blue cheese sauce, and the crispy pork belly salad, both fresh, spicy and filling for a couple to eat. Well done to the staff and management, we can't wait to come back to check out what they offer next time. Thanks again Craft Embassy!More
