Salmon Pizza? Just Say Yes!

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!

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!

Dad: "Guinness while you wait, can't get better than that". Mum: "best meat lovers I've ever had". 11 yr old: "there wasn't enough!" (she had her quota of four slices and wanted more!) 7 yr old: "it was super duper awesome".

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
