“The lamb shanks are great”

We stopped in for dinner a couple of times on the way back to Queenstown after skiing.
The shanks were great, its a nice place and reasonable prices.
Highly recommended

“Dinner & Breakfast”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 1, 2013

Lovely warm fire with comfy couch to sit in. I could have slept there for the night. Service was great, friendly staff. Food was good - nothing spectacular, just nice food. The cheese roll for breakfast was awesome - it looked like a piece of rolled up bread with cheese - but tasted great. Nice coffee. Relaxed atmosphere.

“Below average food and service”
1 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 30, 2013

Such a shame and poor experience for such a beautiful town.
We picked Jonesys for the sunny outdoor area overlooking the river.
Thats about the only positive remark about the place.
The food was greasy, poorly presented, very slow to be delivered.
$3.00 for an extra side of mushrooms was a joke as this saw one mushroom cut into 3 pieces.
Toasted bread on 3 dishes was burnt.
Sausages were stone cold and were not eaten and the waitress was reluctant to deduct the charge when paying. Personalities were not to be found. The place was quiet. Probably for a reason. Hospitality and service was on par with some of the worst Ive ever experienced in 45 Countries.
Such a shame.
My advice to all. Avoid!!!!

“Good food”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 28, 2013

Great food, quick service and a nice atmosphere but we could hardly understand the waitress and she was also very ditzy. If they had better staff I would return.
