about nosh


Nosh's history has been that of ups and downs opening in Feb 2010 in the CBD of Ashburton and having built a reputation of good honest food, great coffee and good service day and evening... after losing our building due to earthquake damage, 31 May 2011 and not having a premise for 6 months it was crazy times.


16 December 2011 we reopened our doors once again and now can continue to share our passion of what Nosh is about... On finding our little gem at Ashford's Village Ashburton, in the majestic Mill House, it just suited nosh and we haven't looked back...


With inside outside dinning in our beautiful gardens, building on the edible garden theme... we have an extensive range of food with Vicki and her team working hard to keep the cabinets full of premise made goodies and also working from the extensive menu... plus many catering jobs weekly... our specials board changes daily and pride ourselves in catering for all diets and tastes.


Our tea is from the T Shop in Christchurch, and our coffee is organic fair trade from Christchurch's Switch Espresso, with whom we have had a great relationship with for 3 years now... we have two very experienced barista's Kelsey & Courtney... and not to forget Kendra the first face you see... she is awesome with everyone... and with Rangi and Betsy working front of house... and Lorraine our allrounder.


Rangi takes pride in choosing our music which ranges from 1920's to modern music and jazz to NZ music...


Nosh is fully licensed with an extensive range of NZ wines and beers.


We pride ourselves in great food, great service and great coffee and invite you to come and enjoy with us...


We are proud of where Nosh has landed (thankfully on her feet) love our new location and with our green walls and wooden panelling plus the addition of Alfresso dining and lots of light we feel that Nosh has a relaxing atmosphere for all ages to sit and enjoy our space, food, coffee, tea or a wine...
