3x adults plus child for dinner. Great selection of meals, some a little more off piste but still excellent and very tasty. Nothing bizarre or likely to turn a stomach, just great food cooked well. We sampled fish & chips (Teraki), fried rice balls, soba noodles, beef and chicken kebabs, calamari, knickerbocker glory, bread and butter pudding, creme caramel. $153... More

Decided to try this restaurant for the first time this year, after trying just about every other place in Hanmer over previous years. Will definitely be back! Service was exceptional. Food was very good and reasonably priced for the good quality that we received. The Pork-3-ways was very tasty and well presented! Thanks.

Great food, excellent service and kid-friendly. We had a lovely meal which was brought out promptly (important with a toddler!). Very impressed. Didn't book, but got there at 6. By 7 it was getting busy.

We went in for dinner on a Friday night, it was quite quiet that night (which was not normal) got great service, atmosphere was great, we both choose the fish of the day with chips and salad, really nice god size meals which we could comfortably eat.

We rolled up here with no booking for dinner on our first night in Hanmer and were greeted like regulars, with old school personalised service, warm and friendly but not overbearing. Dinner was delicious - especially the venison which was perfectly prepared - and we also enjoyed a shared desert. A small hard working team here by the looks, and... More

We had a late evening meal on a very frosty night. It was very cosy with friendly staff. The menu was a little limited but it was nearly closing time to be fair.

Dined here on Saturday night - last minute decision and no booking so were lucky to be accommodated in a corner table in the bar area, but still received the same smiling personalised and efficient service. Menu was great, and delivered as promised. (Pate de fois gras to die for, and Venison was on point!) Restaurant emptied out by the... More

Just what your looking for. Friendly service and good food. Seafood chowder in a bread bowl! Yum And the stout on tap was crisp, cold and in a tall glass.
