Average sort of road house

Willing staff, ok food - nothing bad about it. With a reasonable menu it's a safe enough bet if you're not looking for anything special

Food was ok, but not a lot of choice on the menu. Quite expensive for what you got. Good sized dining area. Polite staff.

Stopped in to our old stomping ground the night before we flew home. Same awesome atmosphere apart from kelly the new bar maid. Swore at my partner after he paid our tab. This is not on and no reflection on most of the other bar/wait/kitchen staff. Not a good thing to do I understand customer service gets hard at times... More

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.

We decided to go out for tea as a last minute decision.. this was the first restaurant we visited and were greeted by friendly staff, wasnt a problem that we hadnt booked and they let us pick a table. Restaurant was busy but we ordered and had our meal in no time. Service was excellent, didnt get to the bar... More
