Nice meal, reasonably priced

We have dined here on several occasions and the meals have always been good. Menu is quite extensive for the price with all mains being $20. Atmosphere was good and waitress helpful

This is a family run restaurant. The chef and husband in this partnership is a very well known and respected chef in Invercargill. His wife Glenys is in charge front of house and handles bookings etc. With a party of over 20 people we had a great choice of dishes and they were all delivered in a timely fashion. We... More

The meals are all $20 for a main ... and I was very happy with the quality of the dish I ordered. Good food at a good price. Even the dessert menu offered a great choice (all desserts are $9.90) This... More

Several weeks ago we visited this restaurant and enjoyed a very reasonably priced meal that, while not top quality, was quite nicely cooked and presented. Last week we visited again and were disappointed. The meals were small and overcooked (my 'medium rare' steak was somewhere between 'well done' and burnt). Drinks were ordered and did not arrive. The waitress seemed... More

This place looks lovely from the outside with landscaped car park and big windows. Inside, it's decorated loft apartment style rather than traditional pub. It has a cool custom wooden condiments tray on the table. Food is good at a set price so real value for money. Depending where you're driving from the sat nav may be confusing as it... More

What a horrible experience! The restaurant was unclean throughout with the tables grimy and sticky. We came here for lunch and ordered roasts. What we were given was a few shrivelled up nearly burnt veggies a mountain of minted peas (minted peas!) and some mystery meat that could have been farmer Browns old leather boots. To make our dining experience... More

My mum and son and I went out because my friends son works there so we wanted to see what it was like. We were all pleasantly surprised. The food was reasonably priced and was yummy. The sticky-date pudding was awesome and we all thoroughly enjoyed ourselves. The staff were lovely and friendly.
