Lockdown Level 3 Menus

We are serving a range of both Cellar-Vate and Backbencher menus during lockdown level 3 via the Regulr app. Please see below.?        

Update: Covid-19 Level 3

Hello! We hope you are all safe and well in these uncertain times.

As of Tuesday 28th April, the New Zealand government will lift Level 4 restrictions and will be able to provide contactless click-and-collect orders for Cellar-Vate café.

We will be using Regulr to take orders. You can download the app on Android and iPhone here:

Order your barista style coffees, breakfast and bakery items as well as meals from the Backbencher tapas menu via the app and collect from the Backbencher Street Bar on Molesworth Street at a time to suit you.

We pride ourselves on the utmost health, safety and hygiene standards, which in light of the COVID-19 outbreak have been vigorously reviewed.

Please contact or ring 04 472 3065 for more information. We will share more information when we are up and running next week.

As always, thank you for all your support!
The Backbencher Gastropub and Cellar-Vate
