To me, when I go out, I like to eat things I would not normally bother with at home. So when I visited Hopgoods, I was thrilled to see that this was offered.
I also chose the accompanyong wines - although not a cheap night out, it delivered all that I could want.

Being a high ceilinged restaurant with a wooden floor, it was a little noisy, but well worth such an inconvenience.

I dined at Hopgoods recently for my wedding anniversary. We wanted a good restaurant to celebrate a special occasion. We shared salmon croquettes to start and I was pleased when they brought us each side plates to serve it onto. I followed this with lamb rump which was meltingly tender. Nothing on the dessert menu appealed to our taste, so we chose a cheeseboard to finish. It was very good. The wine list is well represented and varied. It is a noisy restaurant when it is full, so if you are not noise tolerant or are hearing impaired, that could be a challenge.

Had the most amazing meal at Hopgoods last night. As always the food, wine, surroundings & service were all perfect . Between us we had the twice baked cheese soufflé, the Angus beef and the lamb rump. Delicious

‘Hopgoods’ is a centrally located restaurant in the town of Nelson. The restaurant is obviously a very popular among locals and tourists. We were lucky to get a table in a fully booked restaurant on a Monday evening. The interior decoration is nice and cosy as well as friendly and professional service. We had a bottle of Pinot Noir from the Nelson area. The food was excellent; presentation and taste of both appetizers and the main course ( john-dorry and potato and vegetable garniture) were the best we experience for the last week, during visiting the Southern Island of New Zealand. Highly recommended:)
