At Flowerpot Bay Lodge our aim is to provide a homestyle, fresh, hearty range of Island fare including local meat and seafood and homegrown, organic fruits and vegetables cooked to your liking. As a Homestay Lodge, we operate a set menu dining experience.

All meals are complementary and included in the listed Flat room rate and package holidays.

While we do not encourage excess taking of our marine resources, we do invite you to indulge yourself in our fresh range of local seafood including cod, paua, crayfish and hapuka, better still, we'll help you catch your own. And be warned: once you taste Pitt Island beef and wild mutton, you'll be sold.

Sample Menu


Continental or full cooked Pitt Island breakfast including free range eggs, bacon, pan fried cod, home style hash browns and island mushrooms, toast, tea or coffee.


In-house lunch menu varies including Paua patties, Cod Mornay, Pitt Island beef burger, open sandwiches, Beer battered cod, cress salads and Wild Mutton. In the field, lunch can include a wild mutton BBQ, cold meat and salad sandwiches.
