Good place to eat

A group of us ate at the Toot and Whistle, good pub food. Service was good, plenty of variety on menu. Everyone enjoyed their meal.

Very friendly staff, good atmosphere and good food at a reasonable price. We enjoyed our first visit so much that we made a point of going back again before we left and were not disappointd.

Have visited the Toot and Whistle regularly with family, as meals were always good value, although not flash, and service had always been good. But our recent visit was definitely our last. No-one wants to hear A "loud Banshee" using the most foul language to discipline a staff member . Atmosphere here has gone from great to "ZERO"

Good selection of veg, not your usual peas and carrots that I end up frequently with in uk. Beautifully cooked. Friendly pub.

One of the best Seafood Chowder in South Island. However, do not take their ordinary coffee. Ask for a Flat White or something else, not ordinary coffee that comes with a set.

Having a bit of time to kill before our wine tour started (and wanting to put a lining on our stomachs!) we ventured in and you got the vibes immediately of ‘stranger’! The food was fairly cheap but nothing to write home about other than it was literally drenched in salt – far, far too much for my liking but... More
