The Long Lunch is back for its 5th year on Friday 4th December! Join us on Buckingham Street in Arrowtown for a unique lunch in a spectacular setting.

The concept is simple – have a read through the menus below and book a ticket for lunch from one of Arrowtown’s excellent eateries. Then simply turn up at 1pm on Friday 4th December and take a seat at your chosen restaurant’s table on Buckingham Street.

If you’ve been to the Long Lunch before you’ll know that it can get very hot out in Arrowtown.  We’ve found over the years that there aren’t enough umbrellas to hire in the area and the restaurants don’t always have enough umbrellas to provide shade for their guests. We have therefore made the decision to add $20 onto each ticket cost to help us purchase umbrellas for the street. This cost is included in the prices listed below.  We hope you will agree that it will add to a more enjoyable experience.

Wine from Premium Sponsor, Chard Farm, is available to buy during the lunch and you can also order it on-line when your purchase your tickets. The bars are often very busy at the start of the lunch so we recommend ordering wine here on the website or arriving early on the day. View our host responsibility policy here.

This year’s charity will be announced in November and will be fundraising on the day. We also have some great music and entertainment lined up.

See you on the 4th!
