...go to Grape Escape.Really nice surprise outside Richmond, we've had a late lunch, fish of the day was nice and juicy, just perfectly cooked, accompanied with tasty side salad and steak sandwich was also really lovely, good size too.Just a service needs a little bit of improvement, we had to get a menu ourselves after 10 minute waiting to draw attention of waitresses but after that it was all good.

A beautiful mid week lunch enjoyed by all in our group. The menu is quite extensive and offers good variety, the service was superb and food delicious. It was school holidays and very busy but that certainly didn’t deter the service we got or the food quality. Would definitely return.

17 of us came for lunch on Mother’s Day. They have a huge menu at this place which always freaks me out a little, makes me worry things won’t be fresh. I ordered the beef Wellington, it was really good! I was surprised, it was defiantly not medium rare like on the menu, but it melted in my mouth. We all ordered different things and it was really consistent around the table. One thing I would suggest for this place, is some of the staff looked great and some looked really untidy. A little presentation goes a long way. It was a fabulous Mother’s Day lunch.

Everytime we visit we enjoyed it very much ,and try something different from the great selection on the menu ,I tried the the chicken roulade pistachio wrapped in bacon ,broccoli florets, potatoes roasted in duck fat ,olives mushrooms finished with a tarragon reduction ,it was absolute Brilliance ,my partner had the venison pie ,and also was amazing in a delicious crispy crust and a generous portion ,keep up the great work , looking forward visiting again soon.

During Easter, the Grape Escape was open and hosted twenty for a family reunion brunch. The booking process was easy despite the day, Easter Sunday - when many other venues were closed - and the service and food was excellent. The staff couldn't do enough to make our visit a happy occasion. We were seated at two sunny tables on the verandah, supplied with coffees and other drinks while brunch was cooking and were able to enjoy lots of chat and interaction while not feeling at all intruded upon by the many other customers. This Nelson institution is highly recommended.
