Service was speedy and friendly. Big range on the menu. Lamb roast was how you'd expect it. Blue cod fine though may have been pre frozen instead of fresh. Would eat here again.

We had a great meal here. The food was delivered quickly and was delicious, ranging from roasts, burgers and schnitzels. The desserts looked delicious too - we just couldn't fit them in. Well worth a visit.

Ordered a burger and fries. Not sure if you can judge the whole menu on this order but it was awful. Service friendly. Decor dated but clean. Would not return.

We finally found a restaurant in this country that is reasonably priced. My friends got a burger and beer for $20 and I got the schnitzel with plum sauce which was very sweet but I liked it. Nice atmosphere. Would recommend.

This is a bar restaurant serving comfort food. The menu was extensive with lots of choice for different tastes. I had the chicken schnitzel with plum sauce which was tastybut could have been moister. My daughter had the Pumpkin soup which was a generous portion and tasty. They had a good selection of wine by the glass.

Our family ate here on 2 consecutive nights and we were realy pleased. It was good pub food, everything was cooked well and tasted great. The service was friendly and very efficient. We were very pleased with our visit here, it was perfect for a family after a full day at Milford Sound.

Food was quite good, and service friendly and attentive. Good beer on tap. Ribs were quite tough, rather than meat falling off the bone. Bangers and mash were tasty.

Situated in the main street this pub / restaurant was recommended to us by a local that said you would get great NZ tucker. It was a Sunday and I had the Lamb roast special, the wife had soup and kids had kids menu ($13-15). Overall the food was good and it has a pleasant atmosphere. Just be mindful if... More
