Welcome stopover after long drive from Wellington although it was the Saturday between Xmas and New Year so for a pub restaurant pleasantly quiet. Good value - $83 for 2 mains, salad & 3 drinks. Staff pleasant. Menu small but interesting - rabbit was one choice & not a hamburger in sight! Varied drinks list with fair prices.

Stopped in for an early lunch with the family as a break from wine tasting. Had the platter and pork sliders. Delicious, freshly cooked and the platter was more than enough for two. Friendly, attentive service. Son had the steak sandwich which he tucked into happily pronouncing it to be good. Worth visiting.

Second trip back was disappointing a lot of the things that were meant to be on the menu weren't available had a Tiger beer... More

We ate at the corn exchange on a Saturday night (having booked a table near the fire which was really nice). The restaurant is at one end of the open-plan space, and the pub at the other, so it was pretty noisy especially as there was rugby on the big screen (NZ/SA) but that was to be expected. We had...

Food was not as described on the menu. Potato was luke warm. Overpriced for what we got. Service was average, but friendly. Nice setting - pity the food didn't match.

Went to the Corn Exchange for lunch, were in a bit of a hurry explained this to the waitress from then on she made sure everything moved along quickly though we didn't feel rushed. Lunch was nice, pretty much upmarket pub fare but just what we were looking for. The thing that made it better then average was the friendly... More
