The Blue Pub is hard to miss when passing through the small village of Methven. In winter, the place is packed with sun-tanned skiers and baggy snowboarders, combined with a few locals. Having a beer here is a good cooldown after you shred nearby Mount Hutt. Situated above the Blue Pub, the owner has decided to extend his business by... More

Ate here once during our stay, good menu and reasonable prices. Meals were slow to arrive but were quite good. Midweek meal so maybe not many staff on for quick service? Small dining room but we had no trouble finding a table.

The rooms are basic, yes, but they are clean, warm, and comfortable. No the showers aren't in the rooms, but the water is hot and abundant. If you're... More

Stopped in for lunch when passing through Methven. Food was superb could not fault it on taste or quantity and good value. One of the best tasting lunches of our holiday so far. Staff pleasant and helpful.

Interesting dinner, colleague squatted more then 25 blowflies during dinner (we were inside by window) last week. All it takes is a professional pest control guy to come around and de-fly the place. Can blame the dairy folk but there are solutions.
