About Jimmy’s Restaurant & Bar

Named after the proprietors father, Jimmy’s Restaurant and Bar offers a unique dining experience and an exquisite New Zealand menu. A reminder of the past, when food was honest and locally farmed, Jimmy’s combines the freshest seasonal produce and adopted cultural influences to create a menu steeped in heritage and adapted to the modern palate.

Situated in the new heart of the city, Jimmy’s Restaurant and Bar is owned and operated by the Horncastle family as part of the Pavilions Hotel Christchurch. With artefacts and pieces of “Kiwi-ana” on display throughout the property, collected over three generations from the North and South Islands, the Horncastle’s have created a menu to accompany the environment. Dine in the courtyard, surrounded by the collection or in the restaurant with it’s al fresco terrace under the stars for an evening of accomplished food, professional service and regional wine.
