We met our family, over from Australia on holiday, at the Alehouse on the night we arrived in Dunedin. The meals were very nice and the Staff very welcoming.

Group of four, made very welcome by awesome staff. Beers purchased we settled in to one of the many different styles of seating. There was bench seating, bar stalls and low couch type seating. Very friendly staff looked after us very well. Great menu options catering for most tastes and wallet sizes. Could have easily whittled the day away in... More

The space is well appointed and the service acceptable. Alas, the braised beef was a mystery and accompanying mash and veggies bland. This was a real disappointment following the excellent brewery tour nearby.

Great food. This was recommended by staff at motel. It's right next door to the brewery. The food was excellent and there was plenty of it. A bit pricey.

A very casual, comfortable place. Our meals arrived in record time, which made me a bit dubious, but my black cherry chicken was sumptuous and my husband enjoyed his steak with peppercorn sauce. The pecan tart was just perfect ...not too sweet. Very relaxing restaurant, we would definitely return.
