“Nice”
Reviewed March 23, 2014

Had dinner at the tavern. Had a great view over the lake. The food was well price and tasted great. We sit by the window and it could have been a bit cleaner and there were a number of flies on the window.

“Awesome locals!”
Reviewed February 28, 2014 via mobile

I was there a few years back and it was a great place to sit and have some pub food and a good kiwi brew. I see some of the complaints below and I imagine these people like to have their butts kissed and forget....you are in a PUB! The people were very friendly and the food was good to wash down with beer and play a game of pool. Go there and meet the locals and have a cold beer, try their tekapo burger!

“Good Atmosphere, friendly service”
Reviewed January 9, 2014 via mobile

Our two families, travelling from Australia, enjoyed drinks and icecreams here just before dusk. The bar staff were very friendly and service was great. The adults were able to enjoy a drink while watching the children enjoy a game of mini golf in the nice garden setting which all looked out over Lake Tekapo. Great way to finish off the day for everyone.

“Pub with a difference”
Reviewed January 9, 2014

With first glance trough the door this looks like any small town pub in NZ and in most ways it is. The difference with this is the view out the back. It backs right onto the lake and offers a few vantage points to take in the view and enjoy a good bit of food and of course a drink.
