The Prospect of Howick is the place to be seen in Howick Village, an icon that is very well known locally and has had generations through its doors. It has recently been redesigned into the vibrant and welcoming Good Home Howick, creating a relaxed homely atmosphere where diners can enjoy a long leisurely lunch or evening meal in a number of dining areas throughout the Restaurant and Bar areas. We have the classic “Den Area”, the “Library” for those wanting a quiet nook to get together or the “Private Dining Room” for up to six diners which is a very popular table for families. There is a seamless flow out to the sun-drenched leafy courtyard which is ideal for after-work socialising and to take in the village atmosphere that Howick offers.
The cuisine is modern New Zealand with some dishes offering the classics and of course good old home cooked meals, with regular changes to the menu with seasonal produce. Current Proprietor Barry O’Shaughnessy has had a long association with The Prospect.
In 1978 Barry worked as Chef and then as Duty Manager for two years. Barry moved on to other Hotels and then returned to take over the lease in 1993. The Prospect of Howick is very community focused and hosts “The Point to Pub” fun run and fishing competitions each year. We have Live Music every Friday night and during the summer months we also have Lazy Sunday afternoon live music for all to enjoy.
Barry is helping the community by passing on money raised at The Prospect for Kidz First Children’s Hospital.
