Good selection and value

We visited on a quiet Wednesday night in May. Having been there in previous years we were hoping for a solid Pub Meal and we were not disappointed. There is a good selection of food options, including pizzas. I had the gourmet chicken burger, and my partner had Bangers and Mash. Both were tasty... read more

Visited this hotel twice during our stay in May 2015. Service was fine, food quality average, happy hour for beer and wine good value. We had lamb shanks and bangers and mash. Sounded great on the menu, but the lamb was not as tender as thought and the vegetables on both dishes were only tepid, definitely not hot.

Located on the corner in Franz Josef, this is a wonderful outdoor location for any meal. The food was prepared to a high quality and the bar was fully stocked with the standard fare. It is a bit bright during sunset, but worth sitting there to feel it. They have heaters for the colder days.

Visited for lunch on a very rainy. Very welcoming staff and place. We had the Nachos which were excellent and our waitress from Pwhelli recommended we come back in the evening as we had been complaining about wi-fi reception - great call!, it was superb and allowed us to catch up with family and friends. Tried the burgers for dinner... More

One of the busiest places to eat in Franz Joseph. Food is great with nice and friendly staff. Owing to the location, one cant miss the place. The outdoor area gives some very nice views. Try some local NZ beer for taste.
