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.

An evening family gathering for a grand daughter's birthday was a very pleasant occasion at Styx and Stone. The meals were all great and the service we received made the occasion most enjoyable.

Sad to read the reviews written by a a few whingers who dined here last night. I've been coming here at least twice a week since new management almost 4 years ago. I have always found the meals of a high standard, the service friendly...and efficient, with a good all round ambiance. I hope you guys come back again.More

Mothers Day. What a disappointment. Looked like they had a new manager & totally overbooked. Actually I saw walk ins fed before some of the booked tables who had waited 2 hours. Many tables frustrated. Looked like even the tables with children were forgottenMore

We reserved a table for two via email. The ambiance was good the wait staff although young were attentive. We both ordered steak mine Ribeye my wife Fillet. Mine was nice but her steak was so tough she couldn’t finish it. We returned it to...the kitchen and asked the chef taste it. The waitress came back and said they would give us 10 off the cost. Of the meal $4.00. We were going to order desert but paid and left. Overall not a great experience. Wine at $25.00 a glass overpriced. We won’t be going back!!More

I would like to recommend Styx And Stones in the Northwood Super Centre. My husband and I celebrated our 50th Wedding Anniversary there on Saturday evening, and we hired their event room to seat nearly 20 of our family members. We had a wonderful Waitress,...with a lovely smile, who looked after our every need. Our two daughters travelled here from the UK, with their families to help us celebrate. Our family group of 5 adults and 3 children, went back there tonight for a joint meal before we all parted ways again. We did not make a booking, but all turned up and asked if they could accommodate us. I have mobility problems, but they moved tables together so we could all sit as one group, and we had the same young lady tending to us again. We all enjoyed our meals, even our 3 ten year old grandchildren, who are often quite fussy about what to eat.More

Fairly average pub food, in a fairly average pub environment. The place smells like fried food, I was worried I’d come out smelling like it too (maybe get your kitchen ventilation sorted?). Loud music and tacky advertising videos on the tvs, again, average pub. Drinking...glasses were cloudy and had the miasma of fried food as well. Ribs should have had the option of standard barbecue sauce, not passionfruit, and the coleslaw that accompanied them was inedible according to my dining partner. My fish and chips were ok but the fish didn’t taste particularly fresh. Friendly service though, but won’t return, too pricey for the experience and many better options in Christchurch.More

Booked a table for 8. Got sqyashed into a table that would barely fits 6. When I pointed oit to empty tables that did suit the size of my family I got told that the tables were reserved. Thoight thats what I did when I...booked the table in advance. The table we were booked at clwarly was too small to fit six people let alone two more children. I bookex for eight adults. If we showed up as eight adults we would have had to sit on each others laps. Poor response from the person assigning us to our table. Obviously could not care about the small table. Even when we suggested moving some non reserved tables where we could be sitting more comfortably we got the too hard basket response. Poor attitude of the staff.More
