“The Best”
Reviewed March 7, 2013

Of all the Robbies I've eaten in, this one served the absolute perfect meal, mouth watering, cooked to perfection and delivered by friendly smiling staff. My wife and I were gobsmacked at what may have been the very best restaurant meal we have ever eaten.

“Pub Grub”
Reviewed March 7, 2013

Robbies was the nearest place to eat within walking distance of our Motel.
It is a very large bar with a serving hatch where you place the order for your food and are given a number for your table. The food was adequate and the ambience was relaxed.

“Average!”
Reviewed February 18, 2013

After a long day of driving heading to Robbies to eat. Recommended by the hotel unfortunately it was a order at the bar type place. More like a pub! The lamb chop was tough and overcooked, the fish burger was good; the whitebiat fish and chips was good. All in all, overpriced. Speights Cider very good

“Average food, over-priced, average service”
Reviewed January 29, 2013

Robbies Ashburton is typical of the whole chain I suppose. You get an order number and collect your own food, like a fish and chip shop. The meals we had were below average, very disappointing. And the same price as any decent restaurant. Save your money and head to Speights Ale House where the food and service is 100x better than what you will experience here.
