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

It’s a modern looking building with it’s own large car park and we came here on the recommendation of a member of staff at a nearby service station whilst filling up the fuel tank. It’s on the main route heading south out of Invercargill. Fairly typical of a refurbished/new brewery owned pub - spacious bar with various sports showing on... More

An excellent menu, way above the old food served in the old tavern, before it's upgrade. Tasty, filling and affordable.
