Enjoyed the initial atmosphere but was sat away from others. Very poor vege option, long wait for food and not amazing when it did come out. Maybe just unlucky....

Pleasant staff, quick service which was important as we only had an hour before the theatre. Nice wine at reasonable price and all three meals were lovely. Will definitely be back.

They do a mean chai latte bowl. But the service is not as fast as would like as the scone/muffen is finished long before drink comes.

They squeezed in our large table of 10 on Sunday night (Mother's Day too so a big ask) the food was amazing, service was really really good and staff were great fun. Definitely great value for money and a return visit on the cards when next in town.

Called onto this restaurant on a busy weekend night. Dining area was fully booked but waitress said we could eat in the bar area. Staff were all very friendly, pleasant and helpful. We did not wait long before our food was served. A beautiful meal, fresh and very tasty. Would highly recommend this restaurant. Pleasant atmosphere also.

This is my favourite bar in Blenheim. A great place to meet up with friends for a social drink after work. Staff are always friendly and the beer cold. I wonder though, why no local craft beers?

Chicken salad served with skin on chicken tasteless and one tablespoon of greens. My wife's seafood chowder was good.
