“Went there to have a good kiwi fish meal..not disappointed.”

Nice meal, plenty of food, great hosts who could not have been more ready to assist in any request. Cosy fire, good pub meal.

We ordered 4 different meals and each one was very tasty and a decent portion. The service was excellent and the log fire cosy.

“Great Mussels”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 16, 2012

I had steamed Green Mussels and there was a huge bowl of them with the most delicious tomato sauce. My daughter had the Blue Eye Cod which was equally delicious. We had a window seat in the sun and the whole experience was very enjoyable.

“Odd and expensive”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed August 4, 2012

We never booked but didn't need to, we where seated and given the menu's, all good so far. On the bottom of the menu it has EXTRAS: chips $6 Salad $4 etc. This on top of a steak at $34ish makes it a very expensive place to eat. We did question what came with the main and where told that salad, chips, veges etc where indeed extras. We got up and left, bit beyond our budget for 5 hungry people

I was sorry to hear that your experience in our restaurant was not up to your expectations and that your main concern was the cost.As we have several competitors in our industry you would have to expect our prices to be consistant with other eating establishments otherwise you know what would happen.Pehaps if you were to try what we had to offer you may then be able to reflex on the price

“Delicious food cooked to perfection”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 22, 2012

Love the mulled wine to go with our meals. This is our favourite restaurant in Hanmer Springs and we always enjoy the soup to start with and then the gorgeous flavours of the main meals.
