Our Story

ten27 is a locally owned family run eatery and bar in the heart of Ferrymead in Christchurch.
Bringing upmarket food offerings, craft beer, New Zealand wines,and live music performances to the area, 
ten27 is a refreshing departure from the city.

The polished, sophisticated feel is complimented by the beautiful furniture and homewares store,
Casual & Country with which it shares both premises and ownership.

Owned by the Turnbull family, Jenny, John, and their sons, Matt and Ben, 
the Ferry Road destination stocks Garage Project, Cassels & Sons and Three Boys craft beers, Canterbury and Central Otago wines, and serves local produce.

New Head Chef Adam Harrison has recently moved from Queenstown to Christchurch and it is a privilege to have
him leading our kitchen team.  
His previous roles include Head Chef at Amisfield Winery, and Head Chef at the Sherwood in Queenstown.
Adam curates a new Friday night dinner menu each month,
as well as introducing daily fresh bread, including Sourdough or Rewena bread from the ten27 kitchen.

The breakfast and lunch menu has also been refreshed,with Adam focusing on fresh and local produce.


The airy, pristine interior is championed by the stunning exterior - architecturally designed by Greg Young, in a post-earthquake rebuild on the same site which has housed Casual & Country for 30 years and the cafe for 20 years.

Enjoy live music on the first Friday night of each month from local, Christchurch talent.

Seating for up to 100 people makes ten27 a great party venue choice, and provides excellent peace of mind that there will be a spot available for breakfast, brunch, lunch or Friday night dinner and drinks.
The eatery also houses two courtyards, one is dog friendly and the other features a stunning outdoor fireplace setup.
