The end of an era

To all our wonderful customers, friends and colleagues who have supported both us and our business over the past 3 years, we are sad to announce that on the 8th of October this year we will be closing our doors for good.

The Jolly Stockman has been a great business and home for not just us, but for so many before us as well. This historic New Zealand icon has been a country hotel, a cafe bar and restaurant, a community hub, a watering hole and so much more for almost 70 years.

Sadly we have had no buyers for the place since placing it on the market in 2017. With other opportunities, adventures and commitments on the horizon it is time for us for move on from the place we have called our own over the last 36 months.

We hope that you might get the opportunity to pop in and see us over the next few weeks.
