The Black Sheep Bar & Grill is owned and operated by Daniel Moffat (Head Chef), and Hugh & Peta Clavis.
The Black Sheep is situated on Plummers Point Road just off State Highway 2 approx 17km north of Tauranga. The restaurant features two spacious indoor dining areas and a very large outdoor area which includes gazebos, a stage area, outdoor fires and a pizza oven. Great for soaking up the warmth on a sunny day!
Having only opened in December 2015 it is constantly evolving and is fast becoming a meeting place for locals and visitors whether for a quick coffee, a long lunch, or dinner & drinks with friends.
Daniel, Hugh & Peta all have a passion for community. They live locally and therefore where at all possible buy local, employ local and support local. They believe that this will create a domino effect and locals will in turn support their restaurant.
It’s the great setting, consistent high quality and variety of food, excellent coffee and passionate staff that will keep everyone coming back.
Expect the Unexpected!
Our Master Chef – Daniel Moffat
Daniel has been a chef all of his working life. His passion for food and cooking came from a very young age of around 10 years old when he cooked at home for his mum and brother!
Originally completing his apprenticeship in the far North of Western Australia. Daniel went on to manage a very successful and well known seafood restaurant in Broome, The Wharf Restaurant, for 15 years. Following that he then moved to the east coast of Australia on a working holiday.
As every chef it was Daniel’s dream to have his own restaurant and where better than in New Zealand! Daniel made the move from Australia and teamed up with co owners Peta and Hugh to open the Black Sheep in late 2015.
Daniel enjoys experimenting with the fresh local and seasonal food that is on offer here in Tauranga.
