Wow, we were so hungry and tired and stopped in here on our road trip. Didn't expect anything too fancy being a pub and all, but we both ordered the "Pig Hunter" pork belly roast dish with Veges. It was incredibly good, one of the best overall dishes I have had.

After being at warbirds over wanaka all day we wanted a place we could sit down for a good meal, a beer and relax, this forfilled everything we wanted. Great pub food, nice relaxed atmosphere, great staff, cold beer.

I'm one of those rare creatures that likes green stuff on my dinner plate. Not only do the Brew House in the Cromwell Mall do great Fish and Chips at a good price, they will also do a side of green salad to take away. Great pub food to go. Thanks Brew House.

It was midweek when we stopped by here for dinner. The place is rough and ready but the welcome was warm enough. Staff smiled and were efficient, they took our order for drinks and a bit later our food order. Both drinks and food came promptly and was very good. The vegetarian pizza looked very good but I had ordered... More

When we walked in and asked for a table we were told that they wanted to keep the larger tables free in case they had a party of walk-ins, so would we mind sitting at a high table. We didn't mind, but when we were presented with the menu I asked where certain dishes were that I had seen on... More

Reading some of the previous reviews we were prepared for the worst, and one might ask why did we even bother going, but it was close by and the menu looked good so we thought we would check it out for ourselves. We found excellent food, especially the Scallops which were delicious. All the staff were helpful especially the guy... More
