The Craft Embassy is an award-winning bar and restaurant, specialising in craft beer, and situated upstairs at The Terrace with a sunny outlook over the river.

Our offer:

  • Thirty taps of constantly changing, independent, NZ craft beer.
  • Exceptional wine list including local, NZ and international wines.
  • Extensive menu of outstanding food including plenty of vegetarian, vegan and GF options.
  • Friendly and welcoming staff.
  • A sunny terrace overlooking Oxford Terrace & the Avon river, great for afternoon sun.
  • Cosy booths and excellent acoustics indoors providing a great gathering place for groups.
  • Heated glazed pavilion – the ideal spot for a sunny winter lunch or to hire for a function.

When faced with the option of signing with one of the beer conglomerates, we chose independence so that we could provide you with a range of craft beers which reflects the ever-changing craft beer industry.
