The Best Eatery Place in Upper South Island!
Jun 2021 • Friends
We bump into this place when we were waiting for train to Christchurch from Greymouth. First impression, the place was amazing; very thematic and spacious. The food was very tasty with reasonable price. We ordered chicken burger, lamb rack and eye fillet. They were all good and fulfilling. There is a souvenir section as well that sell clothes, keyring, etc. Overall, no complaint - this place was definitely the highlight of our trip.

Beautiful brunch and sensational service
Apr 2021 • Friends
Made a flying visit to Greymouth and dropped in to the brewery I’d heard so much about. It completely exceeded my expectations, with some wonderful whitebait for our brunch and superb service from the friendly and welcoming staff. We were made to feel really special and will definitely be back. Thank you for such a memorable experience.

Great Venue, Disinterested Staff
May 2021
This place has a great look and nice atmosphere. Definitely the place to go in Greymouth, the food was great, the tasting paddles were great and we tasted beers we probably wouldn’t have ordered otherwise and enjoyed them very much. We got a 10% discount card from our accommodation and also got discounts on merchandise from the passport from purchase. The only let down were the staff, unfortunately they do nothing to add to such a fabulous place. No interest in the customers, constantly on their phones, cleared our own table when required to make room for food and more drinks. Overall I would definitely return but think the staff could do with a shake up on customer service.

Thanks for taking the time to review us your comments are much appreciated. We will have a chat about the service during our next team catch up and make sure everyone is reminded about the 'no phone' rule. The tasting paddles are a super way to experience our selection of beers - super happy to read you enjoyed them. We hope you stop in again soon - and note a difference in staff attitude.

Iconic Monteith’s

Fantastic setup with great tasting ideas such as the 3x200ml or 6x. Great food too.
You can see some of the brewing and the bathrooms are very cleverly set up.

Good food and local brews
Apr 2021
Visited a couple of times when we were in Greymouth, and it was great to come in to a roaring fire when it was nippy outside. The first meal (lunch) was OK - a reasonable salad, while dinner the next night (fish and chips - with gurnard) was pretty delicious and generously portioned. Great to have their beers on tap too, though quite a few of the top-end ones were out of stock. An easy walk from the centre of town, and spacious inside. Worth a visit.

Thanks for your review of Monteith's here in Greymouth. We agree the fire is pretty fabulous especially at this time of year. Awesome that you got to try a couple of dishes, the fish n chips is a classic. Hope to see you again soon.

Would Go Again
May 2021
Although the brewery is non-operational a tour shows you and explains how it did all work, the young girl who took the tour was bright and knowledgeable and made the tour interesting, at the end was the sampling and you got to takeaway a 6 pack of your choice, We ended up staying for dinner and drinks and although was very busy all the meals came out with a wait and were delicious.

Thanks for stopping in, and glad to read you would come again! We can get busy but trust you were well informed there was going to be a bit of a wait, and good to hear the meals were worth sticking around for.

Great if you're on a diet
Apr 2021
Wanted a light light meal but really? Had the Mexican tacos - 2 (very) mini tacos for $18 - somewhat overpriced. Arrived tepid - were they supposed to be warm or cold? Ah, well at least I'll have room for dessert but alas, BOTH cheesecakes were not available; that's 2 of the 4 possible desserts (!) and on a Saturday night at 6 p.m. - I wonder what it's going to be like tomorrow? Staff were efficient but certainly not helpful or friendly. Even with the 10% discount from my motel, a very, very poor meal. Just as well I love their beer.... but buy it from your local supermarket as it's likely to be cheaper than buying from the brewery direct!

Fantastic lunch
Apr 2021
Went to the brewery for the tour for there early and have lunch the Asian salad was 10/10 the Caesar salad was lovely and others that ordered food were all impressed. Did the brewery tour the young guy can’t remember his name short with moustache he was excellent very knowledgeable and delivered the information well. Disappointed that we didn’t realise that the brewery wasn’t a working one now so the tour was a bit flat for us. Had a good day as I said the food was excellent
