Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

Stopped here for dinner and highly recommend it! It's got a warm, inviting vibe and the locals are kind and funny. Definitly worth stopping by on your way through or crashing for the night! And the churros are incredible!

Rang to confirm motorhome friendly and were met by ‘crackers’ who guided us into a parking spot. Thereafter Blair (owner) and staff were very accommodating and provided a very tasty meal. Far superior to the Sheffield Pub down the road. Highly recommend

A group of 8 of us had dinner at the Springfield hotel to celebrate a birthday. This is a long drive out of Christchurch, but worth the effort – particularly on a lovely late summer evening with such lovely scenery. This hotel, in the small village of Springfield, excels in providing top quality food, prepared and presented to an excellent high standard. The hostess (owner?) was very welcoming and service from her staff was very good. I had a terrific salad containing original ingredients and my wife enjoyed a top quality ribeye steak. All others in our group appeared very happy with their choices.

We rode our bikes down from where we were staying on our last night on the South Island and it was such a great finish. As vegetarians, we don't hold high hopes for pub meals generally - we prepare for pasta, pizza or salad but here, we were greeted by the awesome Michelle and the wonderful Shelley, along with a creative stuffed peppers meal with rice, corn tortillas, black beans and sour cream. Delicious! We played a game of pool, had great chats with the two Shells and felt like we were home. Thanks Springfield Hotel for adding to our amazing time away.

A huge thanks to the Srpingfeild Hotel who fitted 23 tired climbers in for a meal with an hours notice. We were warmly greeted and very quickly the owner knew our names and had us settled in a separate room from the main bar. They had advised up front that they would need to stagger the cooking but we got the kids meals underway first and brought out some complimentary Abe’s bagel crisps for the others. The food was great, large portions and nice and hearty. They also catered for the wide range of dietary needs in the group, from vegetarian to gluten free. I would thoroughly recommend a visit here for a meal or a drink if you find yourself in this beautiful part of the country.

This is not "pub grub". We always enjoy having dinner here. Really. good food and great value. The gnocchi is superb, and my husband always enjoys the chicken curry. Well worth stopping after a day's skiing
