“Wonderful in every way”
Reviewed July 3, 2013

My son (18) travelled to Methven from Perth Western Australia for a two week holiday to ski at Mount Hutt, Deb from the Brown Pub answered all my questions was so friendly with very speedy e-mail replies, Oscar has now arrived there, wonderful place, nice warm room, dinner yummy as on a cold night, the people at the Brown Pub are so friendly and welcoming to people travelling on their own, He is looking forward to the fun nights there after a day skiing, FANTASTIC VALUE FOR MONEY,

everything is right there, SO GO THERE AND ENJOY THE BROWN PUB METHVEN.

Very busy pub and restaurant where the local folks go. The servings are very generous. The staff friendly and quick.
We shared a plate and didnt finish. Outdoor seating also available.
A lot of menu options fried.

Thanks for the feedback - we have recently reviewed our menu and have added Tex Mex options to our existing NZ Pub Favourites menu. This means we have been able to eliminate a good amount of the fried food while still keeping our locals happy. We hope you come back and give the new menu a try sometime!

Right in the heart of town. Usually a good friendly crowd. Warm and inviting with a bit of fun mixed in. Food is good. Drinks are good. Easy access. Local Bands. A good stop on a Pub crawl. I had several enjoyable evenings here. Can be a bit slow getting a drink during peak times but worth the wait and you just order two.

Room Tip: One of the must places to stop on a night out in Methven.

Don't go here thinking you are in a big city and expecting that service, this is a quality kiwi pub. The lads come here in their socks as their dirty work boots are left outside, this is where you go if you want to chill, place a bet, watch some sport etc.
The toastie is a quick snack that is awesome!!

We only visited this location to eat. On entry there was no indication as to whether we should seat ourselves or wait to be seated - neither were there any staff. We found an empty table and were then kept waiting for ten minutes while the barman went to check whether the table was reserved. After another ten minutes we tracked the barman down - he hadn't had time to check; the waitress eventually confirmed the table was free. Due to the very limited choice for dining in Methven, we reluctantly opted to stay. The subsequent service was equally very slow – fortunately we weren’t in a rush. After clearing our table after mains, there followed a fifteen minute wait during which we were not offered desserts or coffee - we gave up. Throughout we wondered whether we still had our invisibility cloaks on. The service, enthusiasm and friendliness of staff throughout our entire NZ trip were not matched either here or at our Methven motel.

We had booked the hens night at the Brown Pub and we were very happy! Casey is fantastic and even judged our toilet paper wedding dress competition! Accomodation is clean and comfy for the price you pay and you have to expect noise when you sleep above a pub! Thanks to the team for helping us celebrate and send our Hen off in style!
