It’s a great place with good atmosphere and offers a varied menu including sandwiches, burgers, fishcakes, Moroccan Falafel, plus roast of the day. Everything on the menu comes with a suggested beer match from the bar, but there's also a good wine list.

You should try the Sassy Red beer – it’s fantastic!

From the moment we made our booking to returning that night for dinner the service we received from all the staff was just outstanding - nothing was too much trouble when we wanted to change a few things on the children's menu to accommodate gluten free and when there was a mix up with the beer tasting tray my partner got an extra beer free, no questions asked. The fillet steak was to die for - without doubt one of the best steaks I have had out in a long time. All in all a lovely night out, a little noisy with people out for after work drinks but that just added to the atmosphere and given where we were seated didn't both us too much. I just reviewed another restaurant in Blenheim which paled in comparison from a service aspect - it really does make a difference and the staff here are to be commended (it was Friday 17th January!). Well done!

We had an Entertainment Card which made it great value for money - for those who don't have one you should invest, you get your money back in two nights out!

Great atmosphere and friendly staff, they have great deals on throughout the week too and do the most delicious fish and chips we've had on our entire trip of NZ! Love the Vic, open mic Mondays are great too. Definately worth a visit while in Nelson
