I was a regular at this bar for a number of years and the waitresses were all very friendly & pleasant. I don't know what has gone wrong with the place, but now they have a number of unpleasant and obnoxious waitresses serving there. Avoid...this bar.More

Great place for a meal. Visited as a party for 15 and had upstairs all booked for ourselves and kids. Wednesdays deal of 2 for 1 Stone grill is an absolute steal! Food was tasty and wait time was quick considering the restaurant was full....Our waiter was so patient with our big order and very lovely throughout the night. Will certainly be checking out there other deals and menu in the future.More

Heard about the steak at this place. Had to book for dinner. Friendly staff. Did not wait long for food. Steak was excellent. Enough, tasteful. Good pricing. Nice atmosphere.

Wow, very impressed. Our upstairs table over looking the restaurant was great, tucked away from the big groups. Service was great, our waitress checked to see if we needed anything and was super friendly. We ordered the 2 4 1 Stone grills. The meals were...a great size and delicious. They have a kids menu for $11. Make sure you book as it’s busy with this deal on a Wednesday. They could do with investing in some better sharp steak knives. Overall a great night.More

Average Dining experience. Unfortunately the chicken burger was raw. They did replace it and remove it from the bill. The steaks were under done and over seasoned.

Good variety on the sharing platters although the brisket was a little dry. Pork belly was well done. Pizza was good. Well received on Easter Friday while other were closed.

Came here for a stone grill and honestly was blown away by not only the service but by the food. Amazing experience topped off with incredible staff ;)

My husband and I popped in for lunch while visiting from Dunedin. Fabulous bar with an awesome vibe. Struck by the amazing service, attention to detail and the best burger I have ever had. Hubby had chicken and waffles, also incredible. Totally recommend.

We visited for dinner and found the mains and dessert absolutely delicious. Portion sizes were great value and it was nice to have a main with some veges. We had the pork belly, can highly recommend! Staff were very friendly and service from all of...them was amazing. We will definitely be back on our next visit to Christchurch and will recommend to others!More

The Fox & Ferret is everything a pub should be. Great atmosphere, very good food, a fine selection of well kept beers and excellent service. The staff are attentive without being intrusive and best of all the Happy Hour is for two hours and offers...value for your money. Do try the Fox & Ferret - you won’t be disappointed.More
