Guided by our Executive Chef Ryan McKenzie, our culinary team crafts seasonal menus utilising the finest local produce, including health-conscious options. 

The tastefully designed interior seamlessly extends into a spacious conservatory with a living wall and fire tables that echo the warm tones of the golden onyx wall indoors, creating an ideal setting for coffee, cocktails, bar snacks, or a meal throughout the day. 

Enjoy picturesque views of Hagley Park through the expansive picture windows, making 50-Bistro a perfect starting point for any day.  The lunchtime atmosphere is vibrant, offering versatility and value with a range of light meals, salads, entrées, grills, and desserts.

Wine List

Explore a wide array of wines to enhance your dining experience at 50 Bistro. Please note vintages may vary from stated.

From the moment you walk through the front doorway of The George hotel, it feels like coming home. Familiar faces with smiles and enthusiastic welcomes and a feeling that, although you want to rush up to your beautiful room, the idea of staying in the bar longe area for a beverage and a snack is so inviting also. This is a little haven of peace and luxury only such a short distance from the city energy that Christchurch has in spades. I am torn – I want to tell everyone how amazing The George hotel is – but a part of me wants to keep it to myself! Either way, when I am fortunate enough to visit again, it will feel cozy and luxurious because that’s what they do so well.
