Tipsy Trout

A visit to the Tipsy Trout in Kinloch will not leave you disappointed. With sweeping views across the marina, lakefront and children’s playground, our location is unique.

A comprehensive cabinet selection, along with a brunch and lunch menu offers a great range of dishes, with gluten free, dairy free, vegetarian and vegan options available.

The evening a la carte menu is available from 5.30pm, focusing on fresh, seasonal produce and delicious flavours.

The Tipsy Trout uses Hamilton’s Manuka Brothers’ coffee, a unique and rich coffee lovingly roasted over Manuka wood, and features a hand picked wine list with a New Zealand focus.

Kinloch is an easy drive from Taupo, situated on the shores of Lake Taupo, nestled between two of the Great Lake Trails premier tracks - the W2K (Whakaipo to Kinloch) and the K2K (Kawakawa to Kinloch), great for mountain biking and trail walking. Kinloch is also home to New Zealand’s only Jack Nicklaus signature golf course, and is a favourite spot for boaties and trout fishing fans.

Please feel free to call in, phone or send us an email and we would be delighted for you to join us.
