As part of the Hawke’s Bay Tourism, food and wine festival, Summer F.A.W.C we are hosting a wonderful food event at the hotel. The philosophy behind Mangapapa’s cuisine is ‘paddock to plate’.

Join them for this extra special evening at Mangapapa Hotel to discover more about the journey their food takes. Tour the kitchen garden with the garden team, learn about the history of Mangapapa and its famous connection to Sir James Wattie and his wonderful peaches, and soak in the atmosphere this stunning property offers. Enjoy bubbles and canapés outside before heading to the main dining room for a four-course dinner paired with Mangapapa wines.
