Dinner was served pretty quickly. Nice relaxed pub atmosphere. Minus a couple of issues trying to sort out what was or wasn't actually being served on the menu that day we settled for steak and salmon. Both meals were cooked exactly how we wanted so thumbs up to the chef.

Got the takeaway roast for $18 which was unexciting but convenient. Outside the Inn, it wasn't so nice as inside due to people smoking and very loud. That is not the fault of the facility but it didn't make us want to stay.

We went to A.V.I. last Friday night, we had a very nice meal, my husband had the spare ribs, where they seem to be famous for, and he absolutely loved it. I had the chicken Schnitzel.

Going here has become something of a tradition with me with about 5-6 visits in the past two years. Going to Hanmer automatically leads to a meal here. What's so special about it? Well, its just a basic pub. Average beer, average food, average service, and awful 1980s music that NZ pub radio is currently stuck on. Turned up here... More

We had some really nice food here on a busy Saturday night. Seated after 10 mins in the bar, food took some time to come out, burgers were great, pot pie was OK, chicken schnitzel was also good. Service was friendly. A nice pub to eat in if you have time.
