We didn't actually stay here as had accommodation booked in Wedderburn but ended up here by accident. Our dinner booking in Wedderburn fell through so our accommodation hosts organised a shuttle transfer for the 6 of us from Wedderburn to The Falconer restaurant at the Naseby Trail lodge. The host and his son who picked us up were so friendly and patient, the food was the best we'd eaten in some time - delicious soup, amazing green-lipped mussels and steak and even though we were so full we couldn't not try the banoffee pie for dessert which was also excellent. All topped off with a few bottles of Central Otago Pinot Noir by the roaring open fire made for a very enjoyable evening. On our (complimentary) shuttle back to Wedderburn we were taken for a quick sight-seeing tour round the town.
This was definitely a highlight of the rail trail and if we ever find ourselves in Naseby again we'll stay here too.
