We found this place by accident and decided to try it out and are very glad we did. The staff were all very friendly and polite and made you feel at home. The food was excellent and there was a good wine list or very good beers on tap. The atmosphere was very friendly. We would recommend a visit.

When you're new to a city, you tend to gravitate to a place that feels familiar. The Pegasus, for us, is like a gastropub we'd find back in Yorkshire (UK). They serve Monteiths Ale on tap, a fantastic menu, and live music/quiz (depending on day of the week). We love the Pegasus burger and seasoned fries; reasonably priced and portions... More

Had dinner here and got a bonus of listening to a wonderful group of Irish musicians. They gather here every Monday evening to play together, just a group of friends, and it was just amazing to watch and listen to them play. Spent a couple of happy hours here. The menu has a couple of veggie items. I had a... More

Reading other reviews it seems we went on an off night. Two of our group asked for mash instead of chips with their meal and apparently normally this isn't a problem. However tonight they were told they had to pay $5 extra for mash (even though it's offered on other meals). No explanation as to why. Also disappointed that there... More

This old bar just across the street from the boathouse on the Avon is well worth a visit. The fish and chips were above average. The beer selection was generous and the young bartender even gave us a short lesson on understanding cricket!

Wow love this place. Stumbled upon during an emergency trip to Christchurch. Fabulous food with lots on offer. Had yummy chicken wrapped in bacon. Indoor & outdoor seating, bar & restaurant. So much on offer. Band Saturday night too. Did takeaway burgers for me too. Staff were lovely & it had a great atmosphere. A must visit.

Pegasus is a nice pub with a good menu and selection of drinks, including NZ wines and several craft beers on tap. What blew me away though, is the fish & chips. Several different fresh fish varieties were available and prepared as you like; choices include traditional batter, breaded or pan-seared. We went back on another night because it was... More

This is the first time myself and my family have visited this bar/restaurant, however it won't be the last. The staff were extremely friendly and super accommodating with the children. We waited a little while for the food, it was worth every minute. Lamb roast with Yorkshire pudding and confit of pork with crackling, it was fresh, tasty and plenty... More
