We enjoyed this lovely town, and had one of the best meals out, after a cold day this warm and inviting restuarant provided a much needed hearty meal. We left very satisfied and raving to each other about our meals.

This is a cafe cum restaurant cum pub. Service was friendly and efficient and the beer and house wine were great. The high point however was the meal. I had the lamb back straps which were truly magnificent and it was a very generous serve. Before leaving the South Island I drove out of my way to stop one more... More

We dined here recently. Firstly the 2 young female waitresses were lovely and very efficient. Yes it a bit of a mixture of pub and cafe....with lots of quaint curios and ornaments giving a U.S. Western style ambience! Drinks are a little pricey but meals reasonable. We had the veg lasagne$18 and seafood chowder which was tasty but all the... More

We arrived in town quite late and this place was accommodating in serving us just before closing. Good, traditional food which felt like we were getting a proper slice of New Zealand! Friendly, good value, and the roast - which my partner had - looked excellent.

A large group of nearly 50 of us descended on the Barn Cafe for a buffet roast meal. It was brilliant. Lovely food, great atmosphere with an elderly lady 'tickling the ivories' for our entertainment. Awesome night.
