Last night, we were lucky enough to be able to get a booking at the Thar and Feather. I now know why it is so popular. Everything was perfect. The dining room, the seating,(I am rather short and always need a higher chair), but these were the best. However, the Best was yet to come, The food was amazing, hot,... More

Typical pub meal. Service just adequate. The menu was ok but not spectacular and I thought quite expensive. I have been there a couple of times and would not go back.

A well priced nice meal. We had a nice meal and go there sometime to the front bar for a budget meal at the front Bar. The Seafood Chowder and Sausages and Mash and mine and my husbands favourite, everyone I have taken have loved the price and food.

We arrived no booking and quite late, but nothing was too much trouble. Warm welcome, warm place. Delicious steak with divine mushroom sauce, twice baked cubed potatoes and salad; dining partner had roast of the day - pork with the loudest crackling ever. We couldn't resist and had heavenly apple pie and cheesecae respectively. So so good.

This review is no so much for the Thar and Feather but the bar menu next door at the Southland. They utilize the same kitchen as the Thar and Feather and many of the same items on the menu but by far the standout is the chicken burger. It truly is outstanding and to date the best burger I can... More

We arrived at the Thar and Feather this evening and our first impression was "bland". Just tables and chairs and a little plain bar. The waitresses seemed more intrested about gossiping than they did in serving us. None of them looked like they wanted to be there, fair enough I wouldn't either. Waited around 15 minutes for our food which... More

We attended an 80th family birthday party and there were about 25 people in our group. We had a choice of 2 course menu for $30. I chose southland blue cod, chips and salad and ice cream sundae for dessert. I was impressed that the meals came out pretty much at the same time. I wish I had chosen the... More
