Be enticed by the aromas of all you can eat buffet breakfast, lunch and dinner at Wellington’s Whitby's Restaurant & Bar served on the 17th floor of the James Cook Hotel Grand Chancellor. Our buffet breakfast is the perfect way to start the day, offering an enticing selection of fresh smoothies, pancakes and eggs made before your eyes, plus the classics! Lunch and Dinner feature an array of dishes, alongside Whitby’s famous ‘live cooking’ station. It’s all the energy you’ll need for a day spent exploring everything Wellington has to offer.

Plus, look out for our daily restaurant deals and special promotions throughout the year.


We want to assure you that the health and wellbeing of our guests, staff, and community are of the utmost priority. We are following the guidelines set by the Ministry of Health and the New Zealand government and our very own Chancellor Clean programme. Unfortunately, the self-service Buffet cannot operate during Level 2 restrictions but look out for our new Buffet to Table service for lunch & dinner. Our lobby-level café, Sojourn is open for breakfast, lunch & dinner. 

Our fabulous team have been working hard to ensure you can still enjoy your favourite buffet dishes within the government guidelines. We are delighted to offer you the Buffet at Table during Level 2. Please find more information below.
