“Great value Cod and Chips”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed March 6, 2013

For $10.00 each we had a very generous portion of the famous South Island Cod and chips to take back to the Drifter's Inn to eat in their pleasant outdoor area. The batter on the fish was crunchy, and chips well cooked and drained.

“trustworthy”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed February 24, 2013

Open quite late and food always good quality. Great chips and friendly helpful staff. Nothing like good fish and chips and an ice cream after the pool

“Excellent service”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed January 27, 2013 via mobile

For simple takeaways the food was fine. Service was excellent, really friendly. For a reasonably priced meal this is great after leaving the pools. Tables inside and out, or sit across the road under the trees. Really happy and friendly staff!

“Over priced and wrong order”
1 of 5 stars Reviewed January 11, 2013

Gave me the wrong item that I ordered and wanted to charge extra for ketchup! This already over priced restaurant wanted to nickel and dime me to death!

“unfriendly staff and disappointing mussels”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed November 25, 2012

i had an elephant fish, a scoop of chips, a mussel and an oyster for dinner. the lady who serviced us seemed impatient with her poker face. and the fries turned out not bad but the mussel was far too salty with a thick and sticky coating.
