It was the shoulder season so restaurant was very quiet. Staff were bored and you knew it. Pizza selection OK but bases could have been thinner. It was not helped by the base on one burning while in the oven and the smell of of blackened toast drifted across the dining area from the open kitchen.

I have been here twice and both times were great.
The atmosphere and decor is great, the food excellent and the staff friendly.
Much better than The Cow in Queenstown
Tip - the garlic bread loaf is HUGE.

Terrific building and ambience at the cow. Pizza was very nice although not our preferred style of pizza.

We took our 12 year old son and my mother inlaw. He loved the huge pizza and ate about 1/2 of it then he ordered ice cream and a huge Sunday with chocolate and nuts came out. He polished off the lot. We were in and out in one hour and even had a glass of red each. We didn't order a bottle as the one we liked was $70. You can byo so I would recommend that. Nice place, nice fire but very hard to find.

The food was great with a lovely fire and a pleasant atmosphere. I believe owned and certainly based on The Cow in Queenstown. It was fairly quiet when we were there but it was mid week, mid winter and before the snow fields opened! We were there to fill in time before State of Origin (Australian thing) so weren't actually looking for an evenings entertainment and this was perfect for us on the night. Thanks guys.
