The menu, while not extensive offers a great variety for everyone. It routinely changes but keeps customer favorites. The bar menu is cheaper and just as good, The fish and chips are awesome.

Pattersons is a good mix between a bar and restaurant with some out of the way seating as well as larger tables for groups. The staff as very pleasant and obliging. Menu is very nice and varied as well as are the specials. Service is fast, price is up there a bit but then the food is good.

We ate here during our last night in the south island. Service was good (although they were a bit slow on the drinks orders) and the food was amazing. Its towards the expensive side of things - but not excessively so! Plus as the bar is adjacent to the restaurant, you can always relax with a beer after eating!
