The Denniston Dog Restaurant & Bar, Westport

The Denniston Dog does it all!

We are based near Westport’s historical Denniston coal fields. Our photos and memorabilia give you an insight into the life of a Denniston coal miner.

You can come in for breakfast, lunch and dinner and a snack menu runs when the kitchen is closed. Our outdoor area means you can get some fresh air.

We use Fairtrade coffee and have a carefully selected list of New Zealand wines and ales. We have a pool table and a large screen for the rugby fans.

We can cater for big bookings or do dinner for two.
