“Good Food & Atmosphere”
Reviewed October 12, 2013

We enjoyed a family dinner on a Monday night. Surrounded by some history of Matamata and seated at a large wooden table with church pews as seats. Comfortable and warm atmosphere. The host for the evening was lovely and the food was fantastic. My husband enjoyed the pork, I had the duck and the portions were enormous for the price. Kids shared a pizza which was also very generous in size. Would recommend this restaurant to anyone as the food is prepared well and would be one of the better café /bar meals I have had.

“A Big Meal and Good!”
Reviewed September 30, 2013

Very popular, winter and summer. Great menu and huge meals that are very palatable. Nice surroundings with big gas log fire in winter. Lots outdoor seating too for summer nights. Very good food. Just avoid Friday nights if you don't like it too noisey. The music on a Friday can be far too loud and you can't hold a conversation . Live bands come in on Fridays and the sound is far too loud. Apart from this, any other night is just wonderful and you always know you'll get a great meal.

“They Got the Paua”
Reviewed July 20, 2013

Has the atmosphere of a country pub and all the staff are friendly, remembering to call you by name. The "I Got the Paua" is an interesting dish worth a try - it's part of the Monteith's Wild Food Challenge. My steak was tender & as special of day very well priced. Lovely warm fire.
Great Lunch spot.
