The Backbencher is an historic gastropub opposite Parliament buildings in Wellington city.

Notorious as the venue of the long running political TV show Backbenches, the menu boasts an enticing mix of fine local wines, craft beers and delicious dishes priced to attract the quirky mix of MPs, policy wonks and discerning voters who dine beneath the curious display of puppets adorning this timeless bar restaurant.
