Brantry Eatery turns 20

Celebrating two decades of memorable dining experiences

Amazing food, attentive service, lovely atmosphere: these are the phrases repeated in the hundreds of glowing reviews left by Brantry Eatery’s diners. This stylish restaurant has become famous for its immaculately presented cuisine, served with passion in a beautifully converted 1950s house. This year, co-owners and sisters Prue and Felicity Campbell celebrate 20 years at the helm of the Taupō fine dining institution.

When the Brantry Restaurant came up for sale back in 2002, the two sisters were struck by the potential of both the restaurant and the building and made a family decision to purchase the business. Having honed their hospitality craft in New Zealand and overseas, Prue and Felicity were thrilled by the opportunity to put their stamp on the Taupō hospitality scene. Prue’s creativity and passion for cuisine has seen them win several excellence awards, while Felicity’s dedication to creating memorable experiences has become a trademark for the restaurant.

“Food for us is the opportunity to gather together with family and friends, to chat, connect, and, best of all, leave with your cheeks sore from laughter,” says Prue. One of the things the sisters love most about running the restaurant from Taupō is that it’s home – it’s where they grew up and made fond memories. “A highlight for us is being able to reconnect with people from our childhood when they come in to dine. We are a family owned and operated business and as soon as you walk in the door, you become part of our family,” they add.

Prue and Flelicity from the Brantry in TaupoThe restaurant’s ethos is to support as many local suppliers as possible, using fresh local produce, including from their own garden. The kitchen champions seasonal New Zealand ingredients, combined in modern and tantalising ways. Recently the team also began running cooking schools, a fun and interactive way to hone your own skills, alongside their immensely popular themed degustation dinners. The Brantry team say they are excited for what the future holds for them and look forward to celebrating their anniversary with friends and family, old and new alike.
