On holiday from Australia we decided to try the brown pub for a couple of drinks. Lovely place to sit in front of the fire. Friendly bar man. Ended up here a few times. Didn't eat here but meals looked nice coming out. All round just a nice place to relax.

We stayed here in Aug 2013 for a weekend ski trip. Great value, nice clean warm room with comfortable bed. Would stay again but not really for families as it can be a bit noisy during the night from all the party people coming back to their rooms at all hours. Food was great and good price.

Ate dinner here with 12 others on a hens night, they were very accommodating. Good food arrived in good time. Cheap meals, would have paid more. Even the though we were loud, they allowed us to have a good time. Only down side was the 3warm bottles of wine they brought out to us.

I stayed here while heading back through Methven on my own and wanted somewhere cheap and cheerful. Staying here or the blue pub were my options. I stayed on a special that included a meal and it was a good choice. It is still in the style of the old pub rooms so people moving about in the hallway was... More

Very busy pub and restaurant where the local folks go. The servings are very generous. The staff friendly and quick. We shared a plate and didnt finish. Outdoor seating also available. A lot of menu options fried.

Thanks for the feedback - we have recently reviewed our menu and have added Tex Mex options to our existing NZ Pub Favourites menu. This means we have been able to eliminate a good amount of the fried food while still keeping our locals happy. We hope you come back and give the new menu a try sometime! More

Right in the heart of town. Usually a good friendly crowd. Warm and inviting with a bit of fun mixed in. Food is good. Drinks are good. Easy access. Local Bands. A good stop on a Pub crawl. I had several enjoyable evenings here. Can be a bit slow getting a drink during peak times but worth the wait and... More

Don't go here thinking you are in a big city and expecting that service, this is a quality kiwi pub. The lads come here in their socks as their dirty work boots are left outside, this is where you go if you want to chill, place a bet, watch some sport etc. The toastie is a quick snack that is...

We only visited this location to eat. On entry there was no indication as to whether we should seat ourselves or wait to be seated - neither were there any staff. We found an empty table and were then kept waiting for ten minutes while the barman went to check whether the table was reserved. After another ten minutes we... More

We had booked the hens night at the Brown Pub and we were very happy! Casey is fantastic and even judged our toilet paper wedding dress competition! Accomodation is clean and comfy for the price you pay and you have to expect noise when you sleep above a pub! Thanks to the team for helping us celebrate and send our... More
