“Great Interesting Venue”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed June 8, 2014

Large facility, with restaurant, party room, pokies, pub. An arounder this place. Meal was very satisfactory but the waitress was new and was very friendly and professional. North of Timaru, 24hr dairy and fuel all handy at this site so ideal for families. Great family experience.

“A great Pub Meal.”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 9, 2014

A great Pub meal, simple food well served and plenty of it. So much in fact that we did not quite eat it all. Friendly, efficient staff. Place exceptionally clean. A great place for families or oldies with good parking close to main highway.

“Very much a pub meal”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed December 17, 2013

As far as a pub meal goes its fine. My partner had steak and fries,I had a poor attempt at Thai beef. Service was good, and the place is clean and tidy. Sports groups are well suited as it caters for them well.

“Basic Family Restaurant”

Not much atmosphere, but a good place to take the kids. Well priced, basic food, but it tastes good.
