Housed in a for­mer shop on Lyt­tel­ton’s main drag, Free­mans Din­ing Room is an un­pre­ten­tious, friendly lo­cal that’s se­ri­ous about the qual­ity of its food and wine. Ev­ery­thing is made on site us­ing high-qual­ity in­gre­di­ents – house-cured Akaroa sal­mon is joined by red pep­per puree and creme fraiche in a sim­ple, sub­tly de­li­cious starter, while tortellini of con­fit chicken in a blue cheese sauce, dot­ted with hazel­nuts and crispy pancetta, nails the win­ter com­fort food brief. De­cent thin­based piz­zas, Three Boys beer on tap, a small but in­ter­est­ing wine list, with most avail­able by the glass, and friendly, help­ful and very knowl­edge­able ser­vice com­plete the pack­age. 47 Lon­don St, Lyt­tel­ton, ph: 03-328 7517, free­mans­din­ingroom.co.nz Break­fast Sat, lunch Sun, din­ner Wed-sun; mains $25-$39 IN BRIEF A lo­cal favourite with in­tegrity
