Nice neat pub. Great staff, good food

Stopped at Robbies as a spur of the moment decision. The interior is welcoming with old school decorating and a gas fire which goes disown a treat on cold days. The staff were extremely friendly and the meals were good standard pub fare.

Stopped on way to Timaru not having booked but got good servicing and a average \ above average feed at a reasonable charge. Noisey but in a happy atmosphere sense. I would go back.

I tried "famous grill" dish and a local beer: very generous portion; really I wasn't able to finish my dish. Good meat with a "mountain" of french fries, 2 eggs and some becon. Very delicious. I am sorry to come back early and... More
