A sum­mer se­ries spe­cial.

main was the chicken stuffed with chorizo, warm­ing and sat­is­fy­ing with a de­li­cious creamy mash. The veni­son burger was re­ally tasty but it was a lit­tle over-cooked; a tad burnt on one side. For an ex­tra $2 you get fries with the burger. Fi­nally, the le­mon tart was zesty and light.

Verdict

Billed as a ‘‘lo­cals’ se­cret’’ the Boat Shed of­fers ca­sual, fam­ily-friendly eat­ing and drink­ing in a fan­tas­tic lo­ca­tion. Any kinks as­so­ci­ated with a new restau­rant ap­pear to have been ironed out. The menu is sim­ple with lots of good break­fast op­tions, shar­ing plat­ters, in­ex­pen­sive mains and freshly baked sweets avail­able over the counter. They also of­fer juices, milk­shakes and a Cen­tral Otago-themed wine list. Open­ing hours vary de­pend­ing on the sea­son, at this time of year the Boat Shed opens at 7.30am but closes at 5pm from Sun­day to Wed­nes­day then it’s open un­til 10pm for the rest of the week.
