LONG LUNCH ARROWTOWN – Friday 1st December 2017


The Long Lunch is back for its 6th year on Friday 1st of 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 between 12pm and 1pm on Friday 1st December and take a seat at your chosen restaurant’s table on Buckingham Street. Lunch will be served from 1pm

If you’ve been to the Long Lunch before you’ll know that it can get very hot out in Arrowtown. We now have plenty of umbrellas but we recommend bringing a hat. There will be plenty of free water available.

We are pleased to welcome Cargo Brewery as our official beer sponsor. Cargo’s full range of refreshing beers will be available for you to purchase at the Long Lunch.

Wine from Premium Sponsor, Chard Farm, will also be available to buy during the lunch and we will be in touch closer to the date of the event to offer you the chance to pre-order wine.

The Arrowtown Long Lunch holds a Special License for the Sale and Supply of Alcohol. There is no BYO permitted at the Long Lunch. View our host responsibility policy here.
