THE HOUSE WITH NO PEERS

Landing Page

 

“The Backbencher is an historic gastropub opposite Parliament located in Wellington.”

 

Notorious as the venue of the long running political TV show Backbenches, our menu boasts an enticing mix of local wines, craft beers and delicious dishes.

A quirky mix of MPs, policy wonks and discerning voters regularly dine beneath the curious display of puppets and caricatures adorning this timeless bar restaurant.
