Eating and Drinking
The Matchbox is self-catering. Just bring your own food, and cook meals using the facilities provided in your cabin kitchen. Your hosts at the Matchbox run their own farm to plate butchery and can supply all manner of purebred, heritage beef, lamb or pork for you to enjoy during your stay. You'll find all the cutlery, crockery, pots and pans that you'll need. Read more about the kitchen facilities under 'Essentials'.
If you want a break from cooking at any stage, award-winning, fine dining restaurant Riverstone Kitchen is just 20 minutes away. Also recommended by your hosts, is the amazing Indian restaurant, Fishtail, or the recently renovated and refurbished Waimate Hotel. For something slightly more casual, The Barn is a hearty and tasty option. You'll also find takeaways such as fish and chips and Chinese in Waimate.
A supermarket for stocking up on supplies can be found at Waimate (15 minutes away) or Oamaru (30 minutes away).
