             Roaring Megs History

     

    1880 ‘ish            Original cottage built in Skippers Canyon to  accommodate  a “madam”    called Roaring Meg

                                     

     

    1922                    Gold rush ended, Roaring Megs cottage brought to Queenstown on horse drawn carts and placed on a site adjacent to this restaurant

    1981                    Roaring Megs Restaurant established in the cottage, as one of the first “fine dining”  restaurants in Queenstown

     

    1990                    Dominique Jeanneret & Peter Gertsch, both originally from Switzerland, purchased the restaurant and added a touch of European influence to the menu
