Our waiter (with a tattoo on his elbow) seemed very dis-interested in serving our table, couldn't make eye contact, lacked knowledge of the menu and was generally unfriendly. Our mains weren't cleared away from the table and after waiting for half an hour we left without being offered dessert. The food was ok but nothing amazing and to be fair... More

They have very good wedges, love them! The staff is really helpful! The manager/owner helped us restarting the car as it run out of battery.

The wife and I popped in to have a drink after dinner. Upon ordering a drink we were asked for id. That is fair enough. We provided them with our current Australian drivers licence for it to be rejected stating that they will only accept our passport. Seriously who carries a passport to a bar? So we were rejected. What... More

I have brought my family here innumerable times and never been disappointed. The food is good solid nosebag. Served in a comfortable pub/restaurant. The beer is good, staff remember my name which is always a plus. There is a wee tv/media area to keep the children quiet, pokies for grandma, and a well stocked bar for Mummy and Daddy.

We would have been happy to eat pub food at a pub price at Monteiths and indeed that's what we went for. Something simple, like a burger! But there was little on the menu between bar snacks (bowl of wedges) and enormous, expensive mains. So instead we ended up with huge, chewy steaks and mushy chips which were eye wateringly... More

Excellent little bar and food. We had dinner and breaking. I had the big break in and it was fantastic. The wife had a omelet te and she loved. Excellent decor, romantic for the couples. Excellent friendly staff. Well worth a visit

Very busy Saturday night with rugby on. Fish and chips were great. Observed other tables being served with huge meals. All looked great. Whole family was very happy with the food. Quite prompt in being served our meals considering how busy it was. A must in Hanmer.

We had a lunch there and had the seafood platter. Very reasonably priced and it was great. We also had dinner there and the service and all the meals were lovely. It is an easy place just to drop in for a quiet drink.

I visited Monteiths with three friends for dinner on Saturday 9 July. My steak was cooked incorrect and was chewy and uneatable, with the side salad being disgusting. And it cost me $35 for a meal I couldn't eat and I'm not one to complain on meals! The pasta was made cheaply and there was a hair found in the... More
