RESTAURANTS AND BARS

Dine out in Russell village at one of the numerous restaurants and cafes, or hop on the ferry and take the 10 – 15 minute crossing to Paihia, for an even greater selection of eateries and bars. Or drive to Kerikeri (20 – 30 minutes). Or, if you prefer, eat at home !  The well equipped full-sized kitchen is at your disposal – or dine ‘alfresco’ – cook on the BBQ – and enjoy your meal with a glass of wine on the deck !
