Boulcott Street Bistro opened in 1991, and has since become an icon in Wellington’s dining scene serving innovative, modern fare alongside classic bistro dishes, great wines and warm hospitality—earning the reputation as a Wellington institution.
Boulcott Street Bistro is a Wellington restaurant set in Plimmer House, a Victorian cottage named after John Plimmer, the notable Wellingtonian who was officially bestowed the title ‘Father of Wellington’.
This charming inner-city Gothic cottage was originally built as a wedding gift by a local groom for his bride-to-be in the late 1870s and came into the possession of the Plimmer family in 1911.
