Welcome to Pilkingtons

Pilkingtons – Located in the heart of the bustling Auckland CBD. Surrounded by flora and fauna – Pilkingtons is an award winning space to eat, drink and enjoy.

Being awarded a place in Metro’s Top 50 Restaurants 2015, national finalists in the Hospitality NZ Awards for Best Beverage List, Best Dish Over $25 and Best New/Redeveloped Bar or Restaurant - the hand-tooled joinery pieces sit alongside bespoke fabrics, natural stones and an abundance of greenery, creating a sophisticated atmosphere of celebration designed by award-winning Nat Cheshire. From the carved wooden bar to the tropical upholstery, ornate red ceiling and hand-blown glass light fittings – Pilkingtons literally is an oasis in the middle of Auckland’s inner city.
