Vaccine Certificate required to dine or drink with us.

The Government has announced we have moved to the new protection framework from Friday 3rd December. From this date, and as a team, we have made the decision to require vaccine certificates.We feel this is the best choice for us.We deeply respect your personal choice and know this is a touchy subject! As a family business where there is plenty of close contacts, we need to provide a safe environment for our staff, guests, neighbours, suppliers, community and families. To be able to offer job security for our employees and business has been our focus from day one. We are effing sad if this means we can no longer fulfil your hospitality needs, and please let us know if you will no longer be able to make your booking both for dining and accommodation. We ask you to please have patience, kindness and understanding that things will be just a little different with us this summer.This is new to all of us!We are working through putting the most efficient systems in place to ensure we can check each person and also record our regular patrons status so we can cause as little disruption as possible. Again patience and understanding will be most appreciated. Download the passport to your phone, print the piece of paper...Brent, Kirsty & Team Otematata Eatery, Bar & Lodging
