Just ate a the Bonnie Jean restaurant in the Glenorchy Hotel. Well that was a surprising experience!! Went in at 5:30 first customers. Waitresses really friendly, welcoming and fun. Within 20 minutes were served our meals. Our choices: the Blue Cod with lemon pepper seasoning...- baked with potatoes, peas and spinach. So very good. We also had the seafood chowder - really yummy with lots of nice fish chunks one of the best we’ve had. Oh, and almost forgot to mention, it was freezing outside and the warm roaring fire made it a cosy place to be. We’d go back, and given we’re pretty picky, that says a lot!More

We arrived in Glenorchy in a campervan and our chosen site the eco lodge wanted $94 bucks for one night - cheeky buggers. However, they did recommend the Hotel which also had a few spaces for only $12 bucks #legend. Plus it was only a...10 yard walk to the pub. We ate pretty much alone but the food and service were fabulous. Thank you - enjoy……More

I would’ve taken a photo of my bone in rib-eye steak but I’ve devoured every delicious morsel! Having eaten at the Botswana Butchery in Queenstown last night I’m amazed that this was actually even better and that really is saying something! Charming service and a...great experience all around this is a highly recommended location for dinner in Glenorchy.More

Ate here 3 times over a weekend stay with a number of family and friends. The weather was fantastic so we only used outdoor seating - good shade offered. Varied menu options, some GF. Food was fantastic and service quick and friendly. Also a great...place to settle in for a couple of quiet drinks.More

We stopped in here when we arrived in glenorchy to get a coffee before going on a walk around the lagoon. I ordered a mince and cheese pie in a spur of a moments decision. I kept the pie until we got to a picnic...spot on the boardwalk of the lagoon. Let me tell you something, I've had around 10 pies over the past month, and none of them have even compared to this one. You can tell the filling and dough are all homemade and fresh as can be. the crust is so flaky and the filling ever so savoury. I expected to just get an average pie, but was quickly shocked to find that this could be the best pie I've had during my time in NZ. If you're going to Glenorchy, get this mince and cheese pie, you won't regret itMore

It was pub food, nothing special. The seats outside were a bit uncomfortable and needed a cushion or something soft to make them better to sit on. We only got wedges and a drink so not much to comment on really, but would have had...something else if the choices were more and better.More

How can it be pub food when you only had wedges....really, there are dozens of other choices on the menu which are not fried food. We do have spare reading glasses at reception should customers require them. Unfortunately due to the seats being out side...More
