“Good food”
Reviewed July 27, 2014

Good food, quite big portions and fast service. We had the ribs and it was delicious with an excellent sauce. Typical pub type decor / atmosphere with friendly waiting staff. Good for a hearty, quick meal.

“The food is to die for !!”
Reviewed May 2, 2014 via mobile

We were the first to sit in the new round booths in the Village Inn. And i thought the booths were lovely and so was the food. I had good old bangers and mash with gravy and it was DELICIOUS ! Then I enjoyed a chunk of chocolate mud cake which was amazing. Thanks to the Chef and the waitress who served us (to whom we gave many tips for her great service) and the resteraunt is amazing.

“A real find”
Reviewed April 15, 2014

A genuine little gem with a good variety of beers, wines and food all wrapped into pleasant surroundings and country hospitality.

Would definitely go back for more of the same.

“inexpensive and very good food.”
Reviewed March 28, 2014

We were staying overnight in Geraldine, couldn't find much that attracted us so decided on The Village Inn. It's a strange set-up of a cross between a bar and sort of clubhouse and I honestly didn't expect cordon bleu food but we were pleasantly surprised. I had baked blue cod that was served with a selection of prawns & scallops in a really nice white wine sauce. My only complaint was that there were too many chips - but I guess I am unusual!
My wife had a roast ham dish - which she said was also very good.
We then shared one of the best sticky date puddings, 2 glasses of Mud House & 2 coffees - all for NZD80!

“Great Value pub/restaurant”
Reviewed March 26, 2014

On a hot February day we sat outside in the garden enjoyed an ice cold beer. Then had a very tasty meal at a good price served by friendly staff what more can you ask for!
