Constructed in the early 1940s as a vital component of the war effort to address the linen shortage brought about by the attacks on Ireland and Holland, The Flaxmill stands as a testament to history. Among the 16 flax mills erected across the South Island during this pressing time, it served its purpose dutifully. Once the turmoil of war subsided, the need for the mill dwindled, and it stood poised for a new chapter to unfold.

Today, The Flaxmill has been meticulously transformed into a breathtaking venue, maintaining its original allure while offering an exquisite setting for various events. The venue can seat up to 100 guests, has a large commercial kitchen and provides the tables, chairs, plates, cutlery and glasses, so all you need is some food, beverages and your guests!

Professional kitchen

The Flaxmill contains a commercial-grade kitchen large enough to keep any Gordon Ramsay-level caterer happy. Fully stocked with all the cutlery & crockery you may need.

Cocktail bar
