From the outside this looks like a regular country pub. Step inside and you'll find amazing service and outstanding gourmet food. Our favourite place to bring friends visiting from other places.

I've been to the Gladstone Inn twice now. It is a very special place. Quite unique. One of the special things about it is its location on the banks of the Ruamahanga River. Although only 10-15 mins from Carterton and Masterton it feels way out in the country. I hear it has recently changed hands and was very impressed by the friendly service and the developments to the garden bar. Will definitely go again.

We were staying in Carterton and our host highly recommended this place. So pleased we tried it as our meal was just great. Lovely friendly staff too. Ever we are over that way again, would certainly go back.

This was a return visit after many years. The Gladstone inn is an awesome wee eatery off the beaten track. We had an awesome lunch of scallops and bacon and a steak sandwich in the outdoor dining area. Awesome food and service. Well worth the deviation off the main road.

After visiting with my sister & kids I decided to book a Christmas lunch here for our staff from Christchurch & Auckland & nobody was disappointed. We had a set Xmas menu which catered for all tastes, the food came out in a timely manner & the service by Rhiannon & her team was exceptional. The owner even came out & thanked us for visiting.
I Have already recommended the Gladdy to others & will continue to do so. It is a great place to go to eat & drink. You will not be disappointed!
