Went for dinner on recommendation of where we stayed and they were not wrong. Good friendly service, great range of beers and good food. I had the liver and onions, my wife the special of the day chicken and mushroom pie both of which we enjoyed.

Food at this place is excellent we couldn't fault it. Service was also excellent so warm and friendly. Wish other place's were like this. When we are in Wanaka we always go to this place for a meal, don't think anyone else can beat them.AAA+++
