Peel Forest Cafe and Bar

Welcome to our slice of heaven – a place where laughs (and beer) flow freely, the food is moreish and the atmosphere is one we hope you’ll fall in love with.

Peel Forest is located along the foothills of the Southern Alps by the Rangitata River near Geraldine and Methven in Mid Canterbury.

The nearby Peel Forest Park, covering 773-hectares, is managed by the Department of Conservation and is a remnant of a forest once covering much of mid-Canterbury. The wide range of walks and tramps available in the park attract visitors to the area, along with the nearby Rangitata River which lures fishers, canoeists and rafters.

Live Music

Music is a big part of our lives and we love to promote Great Musicians from NZ and beyond.

Most of our music nights are free and all music lovers are welcome.

NZ has a great range of musical artists and Geraldine and the rest of Canterbury has its own Hub of artists. Our aim is to act as a showcase for all of the talented people that we are lucky enough to have living in and visiting NZ.
