My wife and I dined there in late August 2016. It is a charming restaurant, and it was one of the best dinners we had during our trip to the South Island. Be sure to read about how the restaurant got its name.

We had a nice meal there. Great selection and fast service. Tables a bit close together but apart from that definitely no complaints. Would eat there again if we are back.

Had beef creek match with Pinot Noir. The beef has good texture and yet melts in your mouth. Stepping into the restaurant gives u a Christmas feel. Service is excellent. Good place for good food on a holiday.

As warm and welcoming, as a traditional English Carriage House. The white walls and exposed rafters are adorned with riding tack, farm tools and other historic artifacts. While the wooden floors, wagon wheel bar stools and open fireplace add to the warmth.
