Allely House - Selaks Vineyard Restaurant

Allely House - Selaks Vineyard Restaurant

Allely House restaurant is the perfect Auckland wedding venue and function centre. Allely House ‘the vineyard restaurant’ is only minutes from Auckland’s city center. A scenic drive along the Northwest motorway & 6km down Highway16 will bring you to the door. The turn of the century villa is set in beautiful grounds and charming country gardens.

The style looks formal but in fact Allely House caters well to the casual diner, offering indoor & outdoor seating & a menu that gives the option of very light dining to the works.

A real find and a worthwhile trip out - maybe adding a visit to the fantastic Bethells beach at the same time.
