Went for breakfast, food was ok with a wait time of about 30min which was ok, the place seems dirty mayby because of the rustic look but the toilets were filthy and poor, mayby I'll try the cabinet food next time..

After a day of sight seeing we had a really nice early supper on the grounds of T.O.A.D. Hall with our kids. My wife and I had a local beer and shared an open face chicken sandwich. The kids had a great yard and play area to enjoy safely while we enjoyed our meal. I do love these pubs and... More

I love the styling of this place. Its very rustic and cosy. The outdoor seating areas are great and the food is beautiful. You can also get your fruit and vegetables on your way out!

Delicious venison pie and salads in a nice outdoor setting right on the main road to Abel Tasman. The highlight ... absolutely ... was a loaf of 50/50 rye bread. Yes, we'll stop again on the way back to Nelson in a couple days.

The food here is unbelievable and you have to stop by if you are passing through Motueka. We had the most amazing lamb burger and a very tasty seafood chowder. It was nearly too much food for the two of us. We loved the outdoor atmosphere. They also had really good fresh juices (we loved rejuvenate). The service is friendly.... More

An essential place for brunch on our trips to the region. Consistently good food and service. Great kids platter, good selection of food from the cabinet and/or menu. Casual, relaxed setting. Just watch the swings in the play area, our 3 year old flipped backwards of it last visit. Don't appear that safe.

We went on a Saturday night when they were open late with live music. A really nice family friendly restaurant! Pizzas where really nice. My only criticism would be that the waiter asked me for id which is fine but when I said I didn't have it on me but could pop next door to get it he said "I... More

Toad Hall is great! Pies, slices, ice creams, everything there is YUMMY!! Stop and take in the surroundings, or just grab a takeaway. You will not be sorry. My kids love Toad Hall and always beg to stop every time we go past.
