“Pub grub with a difference”
Reviewed February 21, 2014

Think of pub grub, and you think of steaks chips etc. Here you can get local food, brilliantly served and cooked, and at a reasonable price. Add to this some good beer and what more can you want. Had we had more time this could easily have become our local.

“Fab food at a great price!”
Reviewed February 14, 2014 via mobile

This place has the most beautiful setting over a pond with ducks and the stone grill is just amazing. We were here 2 weeks ago have since travelled up to the top and down the west coast of the south island. Back in Christchurch for 1 night before we fly home and we have chosen to go back to the brewers arms! Great meal at the right price! Love it!

“lovely food in a great setting”
Reviewed February 8, 2014

the menu offers a very broad range of options - so something to suit everyone. Lovely 'pub' type food and setting, with a view onto a pond with ducks swimming around which was a welcome contrast to the sport on the tv screens.
A bit smoked out by people on neighbouring table having meals they cooked on their own smoking stone, but other than that a great place to eat

“Unusual food”
Reviewed February 5, 2014

Had the hot stone meal. A 400 degree stone and chunk of meat. You cook it. Big menu, big portions. Really an interesting place. Cricket and rugby on the TV's. Don't miss the Black Forest cheesecake if it is available. You can get kangaroo or ostrich or venison if you are adventurous.
