The restoration of Olivers Restaurant and the opening of the café, bar and brewery within the historic walls of one of Otago’s most notable buildings was completed in Autumn 2015.

The iconic landmark, originally named the Victoria Store, was built of local schist stone and provided provisions to the goldminers that came to Central to seek their fortune. The complex now includes Olivers Restaurant, a café-bakery-delicatessen called the Merchant of Clyde, and the Victoria Store Brewery.

Fresh, clean flavours are the hallmark of cuisine at Olivers Restaurant, led by head chef James Waite, featuring superb local produce and where a "level of uniqueness'' is providing diners with a memorable experience.

The Victoria Store Brewery, which is nestled between Olivers Restaurant and the bar, is producing a range of craft beers in the specially designed and custom-built brewery.

During the day, sample our beers and bakery produce under Otago’s big open skies and in the evening, dine in front of the fire within the restaurant’s ancient stone walls, under the maps in the Merchant Room, or outside under the stars in summer.
