OK beer, poor food and average service

This was pretty much the only gastronomic lowlight of our NZ trip, over cooked chicken stack and less that inspiring salad and OK beer. The service was all very 'tasked allocated' so no one seemed to really be looking after us. We won't rush back .

Sadly the chicken wings were just nibbles from a skinny chicken indeed. They were sent back. The fries were barely cooked and didn't arrive to our table hot - or even warm. The rest of the meal was passable.

Disappointed this time after a few good experiences in the past. Wedges are not flash food and suit this sort of establishment but they were below par. Service was also below par - staff lacked a bit of knowledge and understanding.

Went there with 6 of us, ordered all the food, but then they forgot one of my sons drinks. Food came and it was very nice and plenty of it, however hubby ordered the seafood platter. He ordered it because it had prawns, calamari, fish bites, plus mussels (which he didn't like) but when it arrived, no calamari of fish... More

I was here with my partner and friends of ours yesterday morning for breakfast. After talking up how amazing the meals are here, I was a little disappointed with my meal. The boys ordered the full breakfast which is what I would usually order also as I've had it twice before here but thought I would try something different so... More

We ate at Monteiths a few times while in Hanmer Springs this year. Once the salad was a little poor (not much variety, really just lettuce) but other times it was good. The rib eye done medium rare was really good, the pork chops good and the battered fish excellent. We admired the Monday & Tuesday 500 gram steaks but... More

The place was flat out when we got there and due to the busy nature of he night we had to wait a little while to be seated and served. But the service was sensational and any wait was soon forgotten once the food got there both our meals were simply amazing, being the pork chops and the carbonara. Fantastic... More

We had the beer and cheese tasting and the fish and chips. Both were excellent, as was the service. I recommend this place.

The beer was good, the chips were soggy and the pub lacked customers and any atmosphere, a bit disappointing really. Perhaps a makeover would improve everything

There were some good options on the menu. I ordered the entree steak kabobs with onion strings and it was plenty of good for dinner, didn't need a main. Was cooked well and tasted good. There was a beer flight that came with cheese, which I would have tried, but when I asked server about it, she did a terrible... More
