We brought my 16 year old son here for his birthday lunch, and we weren't disappointed! Our meals were great, and my son was even impressed haha. His perpetual demands for bbq sauce were greeted with a very courteous and quick response. Thanks Fat Sallys!

Lovely pub. Great atmosphere. Limited wine selections, but certainly makes up with the food. Had the slow cooked lamb and was not disappointed. Excellent dinner, great Pinot to accompany it. Didn't need to eat till after 2 pm the next day . Two thumbs up

The meals we had were fantastic, really lovely. The waiting team were very nice and despite being busy you weren't left for long periods of time. The meals came out in good time, the decor was stylish and drinks menu had something for every taste. Would highly recommend stopping here for a meal

We went on a Friday evening to have a meal and watch some rugby. There was a good atmosphere about the place and the staff were really friendly. The portions were very big, so you get plenty for your money. There is a choice of bar food as well as a more gourmet restaurant menu. Overall a good evening out.

Fantastic meal, I had the lamb shank and it was cooked brilliantly with the meat literally falling off the bone. Servings were generous and we didn't go hungry. Would certainly recommend and go back.

Just ok, big meals but a bit ordinary. Nice beers and wine. There are better places here but if you want a lot of food, quickly- go here.

When in Oamaru in the dinner hour we always head to Fat Sally's. Good atmosphere and a varied menu. Having tried quite a few things from this menu I have never been disappointed and always leave a little bit full! Can get pretty busy so maybe a booking would guarantee satisfaction, although we usually just wander in and get seated... More

As soon as we entered we were warmly greeted. It was a Saturday night so they were busy with nearly all tables taken so we were shown to a high table with high stools. We chose the special of Lemon Sole, chips and salad. Huge portions and very good value. Would thoroughly recommend eating here.

The owner of our motel recommended this place and we weren't disappointed. It's a bit noisy but there is a real bustle about the place. The food was good value and plenty of it and the staff were helpful (although we did get a couple of mix ups on our drinks which were soon rectified). Also a great place to... More

Visited this pub / restaurant without any great expectations, but was excellent. Had shoulder of lamb - best lamb here on our visit to New Zealand and very large portions. Very pleasant place to eat. strongly recommend.
