“Good pub style food”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed June 25, 2013 via mobile

Steak was not what i expected for $30+ price range. Beers also pretty expensive for $13+ (large). Generally okay for pub style food though.

“Fab Food, Beer & Service!!!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 19, 2013

We stayed over Queens BIrthday Weekend and Hanmer (& Robbies) was humming! We ate there most nights as the combination of excellent food (must try the Pork belly special!), great speciality beers and friendly service was hard to surpass.

When it was cold outside their inviting warm fire drew us in every time!

The two ladies (Aroha & Michaela?) were fantastic with welcoming smiles and worked very well under the pressure of a full restaurant.

Would receomend to anyone visiting Hanmer Springs!

“Bar meal”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed June 16, 2013

It was an Ok meal, the beef Thai salad didn't have flavour I was expecting, there was something missing. (this is a meal I often select and was one of the worsest I've had) My partner had the all day breakfast and was satisfied with it , but wouldn't say it was the best he'd eaten. Service was good, . Typical pub meal is how I'd describe it.

“Dinner out”

Robbies was a great place to go for a hearty meal. Enjoyed the atmosphere and the meal was fantastic. Close to the centre of town, a recommended stop if you are in Hanmer

“Great service and atmosphere”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 15, 2013

Nice and warm welcoming environment. Friendly and efficient staff that really wanted to accommodate. Great selection of wines, beers and ciders. Broad menu to cater for all. Food was delivered in a timely manner. When our meals arrived they were of excellent value for money along with great flavours and cooked to our specification. Highly recommend
