The staff here were awesome. We had a group of people for a birthday lunch. The staff were actively there to help us get what we needed and give us space to enjoy. They were wonderfully friendly and efficient. Often as a big group you can come up against a bit of an attitude in restaurants and feel like your... More

The Fork and Tap in Arrowtown is a must. Cosy pub with a wonderful atmosphere, good food and drink! The staff are fantastic and very knowledgeable about the different beers and wines available. We were there recently for an Irish trad night, where I was pleasantly surprised by how good the band were. Sam was our barman for the night... More

A great spot for an afternoon lunch in the sun. We love coming here on our days off, a great break from the daily life in Queenstown. The menu is what you'd expect from a pub but the people are super nice and the food is yum. Cheers guys, we'll be back!

A wonderful cosy bar with great pub food. Our favorite to visit for a few drinks, and a casual dinner. Definitely worth a visit if you are in Arrowtown. Staff are friendly and surroundings are excellent.

Had a great meal in super surroundings, had that real old fashion pub feel to it. Warm welcome great staff children were well looked after and welcomed with some colouring books and pens, this was a great touch meant the adults could enjoy meal and liquid hospitality, have booked a table for the weekend.

This is by far the best pub in NZ! The staff here are some of the most friendly staff I've ever come across and are always happy! Love the menu, I do miss bangers and mash tho!!! Will be a returning customer for sure! Don't change any thing and keep doing what your doing!!

Sitting in a cosy pub, by a warm fire, how good is that!! The first snow fall of the winter in Arrowtown makes us thankful that we have a great pub like the Tap to take our guests out to for a meal. A Monday night and it was full of happy people, a lot of locals as well as... More
