The exterior of this establishment belies the grandeur inside its doors. What a great place to pop in and have a quiet drink or coffee. Warning though, once you are there you will end up staying for dinner. The staff are very friendly but professional and we were certainly looked after. A bit of a gem in the deep south... More

There were a number of appetizing looking ideas on the menu but we just settled for the good ol' kiwi shark and fatties (fish and chips) which were better than average. Saw a good atmosphere, the staff guys = helpful, and the overall value quite good. May pop in again "thanks".

We had a family celebration at the Thomas Green. The food was very good overall, with excellent presentation. The venison shanks could have done with a bit more slow cooking, but were still tasty, but the pork belly and fish & chips were cooked very nicely. The service was fast & friendly as well. The wine list was good and... More

After reading the reviews I thought we were in for a rocky time. However, the ambience has been achieved well with a pretty good fit out of the interior. The place was crowded and the waitresses seemed to be getting things done. Though not overly friendly at first they did get warmer the more we smiled. Maybe that's the answer?!

We had one lunch and two dinners at Thomas Green while in Gore. The food was delicious with a good selection of beers and wines, however the lunch portion could have been larger. It was a great place to relax and enjoy a beer, before dinner. The decor presents extremely well providing a very welcoming feel as you enter. Staff... More

We had a steak, with a glass of wine and a coffee. An average range in the menu. The steak was rare as requested. Coffee very good. Service a bit slow. Well presented restaurant. It would be overall the best in Gore. Heartland might give you a run for your money. Definitely swish though.
