“Tasty fresh food”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed January 9, 2014

Highly recommend the Thai Chilli beef salad, it was scrummy! The service was quick but the staff seem a little too preoccupied to provide a friendly service. The food is fresh so I forgive them for this -room for improvement though.

“Great lunch venue”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed January 4, 2014 via mobile

We had lunch here before a matinee session at The Court Theatre

The small plates and sliders are really good. Three small plates and two sliders was ample for three people. Overall good value, nice venue with good staff
Will go back and try their breakfast/brunch

“OK but...”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed December 8, 2013

For a standard burger and steak house, this had prices a tad out of keeping with the non-exceptional service, non-exceptional food and general 'it was just somewhere to eat'. Cheapest bottle of wine was over 40 NZ dollars and that was an Aussie brand you buy in the supermarket for around 11 NZ dollars. Maybe that was why the restaurant was empty by 8.30pm from having been only around a third full at 7.30pm.

“Worth a Visit”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 23, 2013

We have eaten at The Pedal Pusher three times over the past year. It has a quirky theme and funky decor and, despite the name, no lycra shorts adorned the bicycle-seat bar stools! Good food, reasonable value and lively friendly staff. Good range of beers and wines are affordable. Best in warmer temperatures when the courtyard doors are open. There is no seperation between bar & dining so can be rowdy, especially Friday after work.
