Disappointing food and service. Had to send my steak back twice and waited far to long for our meals at a quiet lunch service. DO NOT RECOMMEND!

Slow service and kitchen struggled with medium rare steak. Some meals were good. Prices ok but for the cost we expected a medium rare steak to be cooked appropriately.

Went in for lunch, barely anyone else there and waiting over an hour for the 8 meals we ordered. Food was very AVERAGE, and OVERPRICED! Steak ordered medium rare came out well done, sent it back and it came out blue!!! Service was very disappointing also. Wouldn't recommend a visit.

Walked off the street. Ordered drinks and one of the specials of the day which took 30 minutes. So all happy as we sat out on the deck enjoying the evening in the lovely fine weather. Good value for money and nice beer.

Stopped off for a drink with friends over the Xmax break, and enjoyed our stay sitting in the rear balcony. Great atmosphere with the layout and decor in keeping with the Arrowtown theme.

My partner Claire and I enjoyed a great evening here in a really packed pub, yet still the staff were helpful and friendly The food was what I would call typical pub food, but there was nothing wrong with that, it was hearty and delicious The only slight issue being, as the pub was so busy, our food order was...

We stayed at the hotel and had dinner at the New Orleans Restaurant. The staff was extremely nice and helpful! The menu was quite large and the food was good. And the music was great!

We ordered from the Asian menu and it was terrible. The stir fried chilli chicken was more like stir fried chilli bone. Why you would use the boney bits of the chicken in a stir fry is beyond me. We also ordered the shitake mushroom and broccoli. The broccoli stalks were like trees and some of them eere clesrly not... More

Fabulous outdoor area. Great customer service. Yummy pizzas. We were there as part of a huge group. There was a band playing that got us all up and dancing. A wonderful atmosphere was created in the different areas

Thank Ongeliqu
