Great pizza's !

The owner bakes fresh pizza's and they taste great, some of the best I've ever had. He used to live next to the founder of pizza hut in the US, who taught him how to make great pizza's (Pizza hut used to be very good in the beginning)

I wanted the meat pizza but my current squeeze said that he really wanted the salmon pizza. Since I went for the salmon infused vodka in Alaska and loved it, I went along with the salmon pizza in New Zealand. And I'm very happy I did. It was delicious! Capers, artichokes, smoked salmon, great pizza dough... YUM! And the Baileys... More

Went in and had a pizza and a pint. The atmosphere was very relaxing and the pizza was delicious. The bartender was very friendly and I felt very welcome. The open fire was brilliant as it was freezing outside. There was a great selection of drinks, and did I mention the pizza was amazing!

After travelling all day (ChCh to Greymouth to Picton) we arrived in Picton with a couple of hours to spare before our late ferry left for Wellington. We went to Seamus' Irish Bar to have a relaxed and quiet drink and also got a bowl of fries (they were chunky ones) and a plate of Wedges with melted cheese and... More

We found this pub with Trip Advisor while staying the night for a morning ferry. The owner Neil is originally from the U.S. and we went to see if all of the postive reviews about his pizza were correct, because there is not much going on for dinner in Picton. We loved the pizza and garlic bread and would go... More
