We went along for a drink on a Friday evening reasonably late after having a meal elsewhere, we were mostly just interested to see what all the fuss is about in other reviews. The hotel is no oil painting but we got prompt, super friendly service from a young lady called Gabby, she is a credit to the place. Not such interesting patrons as the other pub we went to but certainly didn't bother us. Again on the Saturday we went back after eating elsewere and met one of the owners Chris I think? who looked after us for the rest of the night. Good to have a yarn to and even joked to him about being famous for bad reviews which he took in good spirit. We had no complaints and enjoyed both visits. Finished the night with a couple of generous ports and even met the family friendly well behaved dog. We went here with an open mind not attitude and got good service in return.

Went there for a meal no dining room to eat in but tables there so thought ok thats all good got the menu and asked the guy behind the bar what is in the seafood basket and the answer was seafood so said yes but what kind he asked the lady there which I think is one of the owners she said the same with a smug look on her face well I just thought bloody rude as before they were talking and laughing with the locals but little did they know my parents are locals which were with me, So I just dropped the menu and said we are leaving these people are rude and we went across the road to Dawsons which I would highly recommend to anyone

We were here on Melbourne cup day so it was pretty busy but we found a seat at the bar and then decided to order dinner as there was pasta on the menu , not often found in smaller pubs - it certainly didn't disappoint, a very large helping which I enjoyed. My partner had the roast which was also a very big meal.

Chanced upon this pub on a quiet Sunday night in search of a traditional Sunday roast meal while on a brief stop in Reefton. The roast beef was amazing and portions very generous. Served by very hospitable hosts. Squeezed in apple crumble dessert, also delicious. Can highly recommend.

Not one to write reviews but as our experience was so bad I decided to share. Sorry I've wrote alot! We travelled the South Island after the Covid lockdown and tried to spent our money at small and local businesses rather than chain stores and fast food outlets. Meeting some friendly cafe, pub and shop owners who were stoked to see someone new in their shop and always gave us a local sight to see or thing to do. Having just spent the last 2 weeks in a campervan touring the South island and visiting many pubs, cafes, restaurants, shops and dairys this was the only place we regret giving any of our money to. Funnily enough 5min prior to stepping foot inside Hotel Reefton I had just been at one if the local stores/shops and mentioned i was heading there for a beer and a feed, the person serving me said "Good Luck with that" which now I realize was not just a random passing comment. The lady who served us and looked like she ran the place, had a terrible attitude and was very snappy and rude, certainly did not appear to even want us in the bar. Simply friendly questions and comments from us were treated with smart remarks and death stares and very unwelcoming tones. Although as soon as a one of the locals said a word from across the bar her attitude would turn right around. Her husband ( I assume) was no better with grumbles under his breath while be served and trying to make friendly conversation with him. Had it not of been for them being the only place in town with a TAB to watch a horse race I wanted to see, we would of walked straight out. Decided we would cook our own meal in the campervan rather than give them our money so only ended up having a couple of quick beers and a garlic bread which was overpriced and undercooked. You would think given the recent Covid events that any visitors willing to explore and spend money would be welcome but certainly NOT HERE.
