“Spot on. Delicious food, generous portions”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed March 24, 2013

Plenty of choices on the menu. I had the roast pork, it was tasty with loads of vegetables and well presented and the other diner had a burger that rated highly. Service was friendly and fast. Take the opportunity to inspect the Argosy aeroplane and watch a movie on its history plus sit in the cockpit of this restored freighter. A pleasant experience combining good food and a history lesson.

“Huge portions”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed March 16, 2013

Had supper here last week. Quite a way out from Blenheim (need a car). Cafe style. Huge portions, so excellent for anyone who is really hungry. Fresh food, pleasant service, standard dishes.

“Long wait”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed March 16, 2013 via mobile

Well I know I only went for a coffee and it was early well 9am and I think there were 5 staff there may be it was 4 , two were on the serving side and two I the kitchen. They took my order took my money and I was asked to take a seat and they would bring it over, I went and sat down and waited, waited got up and looked around at all the photos, went over to the counter where one af the counter staff was on the phone having a long chat.
After 25 minuets waiting and being the only customer in the place I gave up walked out and would not go back in the place again

“Large meals”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed January 2, 2013

Large wholesome meals. Management are very obliging and welcoming. One can climb into the Argosy aircraft parked right next door. This plane has been restored to a very high standard

“Flying beautifully”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 25, 2012

Excellent wholesome, freshly made and served food. Lovely, really friendly service.

The Argosy is a wonderful plane to have a look at inside, fascinating for adults and kids.

The restaurant is simple but well run and the prices are excellent value.

We dine at the Argosy regularly on our way home from Blenheim.
