We celebrated my partners birthday here with a lovely dinner. It was busy due to business Xmas outings but the service was outstanding and the atmosphere good. We enjoyed it immensely! Make a reservation as they are always busy. Excellent choice!

Stopped here for dinner on way to Dunedin from Te Anau and wasn't disappointed. We both had the surf and turf and presentation was excellent. They were both cooked to our preferences and was very tasty. The hotel itself is amazing.

A quiet day in Gore. We were pleased to find the Thomas Green! Great food; nice presentation, lovely atmosphere. A highlight was the build-your-own burger on the kids menu. We were almost a bit envious!

Hi there Thanks for taking the time to review our restaurant I'm glad your partner enjoyed her Pork, we agree it is enjoyable. The "saucy stuff" on the Lamb is a Jus and with the salad being a generous sized Cannellini Bean salad it is a little difficult to keep it in one place. We do have a lot of... More

Waiter not happy, and waited more than 45 minutes for our meal. It should be a great place but needs staff training.
