We ordered chicken and chips, and imagined it would be a piece of chicken, and some chips. The chips were good, but the 'chicken' was three large-ish chicken nuggets arranged in a fanciful position on top of the chips. We added ketchup as a nod to one of our 5-a-day! Shouldn't have chosen one of the cheaper options on the menu!

I had the hamburger and my boyfriend had the bangers and mash. Both tasted like microwave meals (pretty sure they were actually)!
Who in their right mind puts cucumber on a hamburger? The hamburger and sausage tasted like crap, deepfried from some giant food fabricant and no taste at all, except for a chemical one.

As a West Coaster I was delighted to find a really decent Whitebait meal. It was is the starter/entree section of the menu but made a very adequate meal. The two large, delicious whitebait patties were served with a small serving of fries and a fresh salad. My companion had the Blue Cod fish and chip meal which was larger (too large for me) but equally delicious. Both meals were excellent value for money. The atmosphere in the bar/cafe was lively and the staff were hardworking and polite. Highly recommended evening meal stop!!

My sister and I stopped in Haast during travelling the South Island.
We were served by the most polite, friendly, lovely guy called Patrick at the bar. He was very helpful and so sweet! The food was tasty and just what we needed after a long day of driving. Although the area is very much deer hunting country, they still had some nice veggie options on the menu. They do have quite a few deer heads on the wall, just warning anyone who may be upset by this. There really isn't a lot of choice of places to eat in Haast (this was the only place open when we went)! But the friendliness of the staff made our experience enjoyable.

We had a really nice meal here. I had the lambshank which was lovely and my other half had a burger which was also good. We had a lovely sunny table in the corner of the restaurant. The drinks were also good and not a bad price. The barman was friendly and helpful. A very pleasant evening.
