“Good pub grub, service equally the same.”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed January 26, 2013

They haven't changed the grilled fish for 2 years since I last visited. Except for the serving size used to be bigger. Service was fantastic and I felt looked after. Good job for getting simple things right.

“Overpriced”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed November 30, 2012

We had a stop over in Timaru. We chose this restaurant based on the reviews on Tripadvisor. Unfortunately the reviews did not match our restaurant experience. Expect to pay $30 for a slice of poor cooked salmon and potato mash. Vegetables comes extra. We were almost forced to have a starter as well since the waiter told us that it would take "long time" to cook our meal if we didn't have a starter. We chose not to since the starter menu was poor and we were not that hungry. The meal came and we were rather disappointed, not much food at all (we now understood why she tried to force us to choose a starter). So if your very hungry you should probably choose a starter in order to be satisfied..

“reliably classy”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed November 14, 2012

always delicious and tempting food, presented well and in tasteful surroundings. Our favourite is to sit outside under the gas heater and indulge in the calamari with a glass of wine on a sunday evening. Great service - always friendly and professional.
