Rocked up at the Brown pub having been unable to get a table at the rival Blue pub. As it turned out this was a fortuitous event as the food and service in the Brown pub was exceptional. The food was very good and at a very reasonable price. Would definately go again.

We only eat here once, but the staff were friendly, and the meals good. The portions were very large, and very reasonably priced. Free wifi was supplied if buying over a certain price, and a meal was easily enough. The wifi was excellent. The decor was rather tired and old, but seemed to be similar to the local competition.

My sister and I had 5 days in Methven/Mt Hutt for the start of the 2014 ski season. The Brown Pub became our much loved local for well earnt beers and delicious meals after days on the slopes. Friendly staff, ice cold beer and delicious meals, what more could you want?

We stopped for a drink and dinner. The food (pasta special and roast beef) was very good, piping hot, and super portions. There was too much for us both. The waiter was from Prague, Czech Republic, and was very pleasant. He was training a new girl, and we were happy to let her (nervously) wait on us, and play with... More

We Just called in for a drink & dinner. We were met by a male staff member behind the bar who was quite unfriendly, almost rude. He made no attempt to welcome us or speak to us and when we tried to make conversation with him we got one word answers and not even a smile. The food was nice... More

We love this place. We gather up the snow Crew and think we take over for a week. The place keeps us warm and gives us a bed, thats all you need on a budget snow trip. The staff are always fantastic and helpful. The food always helps us come home about 5kg heavier. THE CHOCKIE BROWNIE is one that... More

Went here for dinner after a big day on the slopes. Staff were friendly, meals were reasonably priced and the food was delicious. They offer free wifi, you just need to request the code from the wait staff. Lovely big fireplace to take the chills away.

Our family visited for Father's Day after a hard day on the mountain. The staff were on us as soon as we walked in. Menu wasn't huge, but did more than cater for us. Prices were very good and kids eat free. Meals were a lot better than what we expected from a country pub and the staff were very... More

Went to the brown pub twice during our stay. Meals were slow to arrive which is difficult when you have tired children.... However they were very nice and well priced. Staff were accommodating and pleasant.
