Great pit stop

Firstly good to find somewhere open all day on Sunday - so many NZ cafes shut at 4pm. The café/micro brewery is on highway 1, a bit quirky, with a good range of beers - available for $4 for a selection of four tasting plate. The food was good - not great choices but the seafood chowder was really... read more

We stopped for a meal enroute with our two children, aged 6 and 9, and were so pleased we did. We were able to sit outside under a covered area and appreciated the shade. The food was excellent and great value. The kids thoroughly enjoyed the kids platters which we couldn't recommend more highly. Service was great - very friendly... More

We stopped here for lunch and was glad that we did. It's a nice cafe which brews it's own beer so lots of options. There is indoor seating, outdoor marquee seating and then an assortment of outside tables if you fancy sitting outside. The service was really quick and the food was outstanding. I highly recommend the corn fritters. Will... More

We stopped at the Brew Moon passing through on our way to Christchurch. The service was a little slow, the staff were very friendly and the servings were quite large. I ordered the sausage roll and salad, and it was very filling. There was a nice outdoor eating area. We did not try the beer. A nice place to stop... More

I know I've written before about this 'Brewery-garden cafe', but I've made a few more visits this month with my Berlin pals ... it has quite simply (on a nice day) become our default eatery (and drinkery) in the North Canterbury area ... The situation is an unpretentious and green beer garden, the beers are excellent, and -- well, I've... More

Been a few years since last here, heard was in new ownership. A sunny day so a light lunch in the shade was desired, pleasantly surprised by the interesting menu and very reasonable prices. Sign proudly stating no surcharge for the holiday weekend. The cabinet food had me before I saw menu, the mushroom filo and salad were just great... More

Coffee was average, too hot and took far too long. How hard is it to make this Cafe staple? The service was also lacking in speed and attention.

I am not a beer drinker so my friend suggested that we go here. I chose 4 tasting options and so did my friend. I learned a lot about different beers and changed my mind about my regular drink option which is wine. Lovely presentation and nice little appetiser snacks to go with our beers. It was a cold day...

To be fair we weren't expecting much out of an unbooked Tuesday dining experience. We were surprised to find the place busy and full of atmosphere. I was left baffled by bad reviews on service as the two female staff on, who were both sharing the load, were really upbeat and bending over backwards to make everyone comfortable. Great little...

My partner and I went for lunch at the Brew Moon the other week. I've heard good things about Brew Moon, but unfortunately we were both disappointed. We sat in the court yard out the back, which was lovely. We ordered some drinks and after 20 minutes they still hadn't arrived. There seemed to be plenty of staff around clearing... More
