- Special Occasions -

We at the Fat Duck Gastropub would love to work with you to organise your upcoming special occasion in Te Anau. We can cater for both large and small groups, with sectioned Function Areas within the Fat Duck able to be hired separately. We are one of the few venues in Te Anau with the capability to adjust table sizes to suit your group. Our set menu options include a range of either 2 or 3-course meals or finger food, along with flexible beverage options. Check out our menus and our range of cake options below. Let us know what your occasion is and we will ensure it is made special!

Beverage Options

The Fat Duck has a range of tap & bottled beer, wine, spirits and non-alcoholic beverages. We can be flexible and provide either a cash bar or operate a bar tab on your behalf. You are welcome to pre-select wines or other alcoholic beverages you would like served on a bar tab.


Our standard playlist consists of a pub/chart/pop music mix. Andres from Proper Sounds plays live music every Saturday in the late afternoon. We can accommodate you if you would like your own playlist or can assist you to arrange live music for your function.


We have a limited amount of parking available beside The Fat Duck. There is a large carpark located directly behind the restaurant at the Fiordland Events Centre. We can also arrange taxi transfers if needed, advance notice may be required for large groups of people.

Cake Options

Please feel free to bring your own cake for your occasion. We will supply storage, utensils and plates for a Cake Service fee of $10 per cake. You are welcome to cut the cake yourself, or we can have our chefs cut and portion. Alternately, our talented Chefs have some delicious cake recipes ready to go.
