September 2015: Pumice Restaurant Rebuilt

Discerning Hamiltonians will be looking forward to the resurrection of the former Pumice restaurant, which was destroyed in fire. The spectacular new-build is nearing completion and will be well ready for Christmas festivities. It will include some special architecture – part of the new restaurant will be cantilevered over a cliff looking towards the Hakarimatas - and will be a valuable addition to the already impressive portfolio of venues Pumice Food Group can offer.

The smorgasbord of breath-taking dining locations includes the only Hamilton venue on the banks of the Waikato (The Ferrybank), an elegant venue located on the Mystery Creek vineyard (Coopers Function Centre), and a magical place on Turtle Lake at the Hamilton Gardens (Hamilton Gardens Lakeside). That’s just a taste of it.

These captivating venues, coupled with the talents of Kerr & Ladbrook Catering, equate to a second-to-none festive experience. Kerr & Ladbrook has a well-cemented reputation for consistently offering exquisite catering and exceptional service, thanks to highly acclaimed chefs David Kerr and Ryan Ladbrook and their talented team.

Kerr & Ladbrook menus are created with a determination to serve fresh, free- range and organic produce, which is locally sourced whenever possible. Various plated and buffet menus are on offer. Off-site catering is also part of the service.

Diners love the food, and the Kerr & Ladbrook team love the unfailingly positive feedback. Commentary is often along the lines of: “Your food quality and presentation exceeded our high expectations” – little wonder really given that Dave and Ryan have long been recognised as synonymous with superior cuisine. They’ve had more than 20 years’ experience, plus time overseas, to fine-tune their innate talents.

Combine those taste sensations on offer, with the venues we can provide, and the end result is a memorable dining experience brimful with magic.
