We were staying at another motel in Methven while skiing for the week at Mt Hutt but thought we had to try at least one of the two famous pubs in Methven for a meal before we went home. On our last night, we decided to go for The Brown Pub, based off the menu's we had read for each... More

I ate several dinners here and loved the food. Huge portions Ordered my first jugs of Hard Cider. The locals were warm and welcoming. The locally made sausage was good and well as my first New Zealand steak was cooked perfectly. I did not stay in the hotel just ate at the restaurant.

The hotel and pub were nice but the staff were incredible. We had a bad car accident and they helped us out in every way possible - kept the kitchen open late, lent us chargers, gave us ice for our injuries, let us sit in the corner and use the internet in the daytime, stored our stuff and the waitress...

Beautiful meals here especially the chicken Snitzel. Very good pub meals and lots to choose from off the menu. Great staff as well. The wait staff are very efficient and it's a nice little country pub

Oh no we are so sorry you met with that response! We are looking into this from our end as this is not at all what we would expect from any of our wonderful staff members. Children are welcome to use the pool table as long as they are supervised by their parents. We also provide video games, toys and... More

Bought takeaway pizza. Wow! This was amazing. Best I have ever had from a pub. The service was friendly and informative. Told me about other takeaway outlets in Methven. Would be very happy to recommend to friends and family.

Rocked up at the Brown pub having been unable to get a table at the rival Blue pub. As it turned out this was a fortuitous event as the food and service in the Brown pub was exceptional. The food was very good and at a very reasonable price. Would definately go again.

We only eat here once, but the staff were friendly, and the meals good. The portions were very large, and very reasonably priced. Free wifi was supplied if buying over a certain price, and a meal was easily enough. The wifi was excellent. The decor was rather tired and old, but seemed to be similar to the local competition.
