Foodies rejoice: voting now open

Calling all foodies. Grab your mates and help us scour the country to find the very best gastropubs in New Zealand and you could be in to win an Auckland holiday for two.

That’s right, we know Aotearoa New Zealand is blessed with an array of gastropubs that serve up delicious dishes using fresh, locally-sourced ingredients, so we want you to get out there and sample your way around, and then pick your ultimate favourite!

The inaugural Estrella Damm Top 50 New Zealand Gastropub awards aims to spotlight the best food-led pubs across the nation, with gastropubs from all corners vying for the top spot.

Public votes will determine the Top 50 list and a panel of distinguished hospitality judges will then crown seven regional winners and unveil the supreme champion at an awards ceremony in April 2024.

Whether you’re keen to indulge in wood fired pizzas and local brews amongst the hop vines  at GodsOwn Brewery in Hastings, sip on lychee cocktails at Milford Motel on Auckland’s north shore, or sample the local game flavous of the south at the Fat Duck in Te Anau, there is something for everyone, in all parts of the country.

Once you’re well and truly in your food coma, cast your vote and you’ll instantly go in the draw to win an Auckland holiday for two, complete with return flights from any NZ domestic airport, accommodation in central Auckland, dinner at an established restaurant, tickets to the awards evening and a pass to some of Auckland’s best tourism experiences.

Head along to to cast your vote and be in to win!
