One of my favourite places in Gisborne is The Bushmere Arms. An old colonial pub beautifully restored and extended offering a great dining experience. The day we were there it was pretty quiet but that didn't change the outcome of excellent food and service from Robin. My lamb fillets were some of the best ever and complimented with veg grown...

Had lunch here with two adults and one toddler. Our meals were divine and absolutely faultless. The food took quite awhile to arrive but we were allowed to walk through the amazing gardens while we waited. Would love to try the dinner menu!

Came here on a winter's evening and sat in front of a roaring log fire while having a drink and reading the menu. We had booked so our table was ready and we went through just before our meal was served. The food was beautiful. There were 3 of us and we all had something different. We all had three... More

I got married here on the 12th of October and it was the most wonderful experience. Right from the beginning Robin was accommodating and helpful, he did not hesitate to help in anyway he could and the food was to die for on the day. It was the best decision we made having this as our venue and it was... More

Located on the outskirts of Gisborne, the Bushmere Arms has always had fantastic food, so when in Gisborne recently my wife and I decided to try it again. As usual absolutely outstanding. We eat at a lot of top restaurants around NZ and Bushmere Arms would be the pick of them. Great food ( Not a huge menu but it... More

Old traditional country pub in the most amazing gardens. Service can be slow. Take nana out for Sunday lunch on a fine day and enjoy a walk through the gardens while waiting for your meal
