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.

Probably one of the worst dining experiences I have ever had. We had booked a table for 10,2 weeks ago. No table when we arrived , even though they had text to confirm it. Meals were all cold, very reluctantly the waitress took them back...to the kitchen to reheat. Salad was terrible, cold coffee. Ordered cheesecake for dessert, none available. Won’t be returning even though we live locallyMore

Went to OGH Avonhead on Thursday 29 Dec to another excellent meal of ribs and great hospitality. They never fail to impress. My wife and I have been patronizing this place for the last 5 years. Yes, their prices have gone up a bit but...whose hasn't? Nevertheless, it's always a high standard of friendly hospitable service, great, delicious food and a homely ambience. Well done OGH Avonhead.More

For a party of 16 - the food was served in a timely manner. We sat close-ish to the kitchen so were away from the more nosier side of the tavern TAB etc. Kids were given colouring pencils to wait out the time which was...useful, when they exhausted that this tavern offers a wee games area and pool along with virtual golf. Majority of the party ordered steak for mains and there was no complaints, portion wise very considerate & their ribs were tasty. Kids meals included tall glass of either milk/juice or soda and sundae. Only a few had dessert which were great in portion after a big main. We found the staff very attentive and helpful especially as we bought in a birthday cake too. Overall experience we will most def visit again.More

Excellent service by staff but wouldnt return for food. Seafood chowder was not as described on menu. Eventually found one deshelled muscle in a milky watery soup that lacked taste an had a few shrimps an left over fish pieces. Meatlovers pizza was ok but...far too much sauce sqirted over it. Yummy chibata bread came with the soup.More

This was our 3rd meal here. The food is tasty, large meals and good value. Much better than your typical pub grub with great variety on menu. Our waitress was helpful and friendly and took all 6 people's orders without needing to write them down....You can eat inside or outside. We had a quiet indoor table. My pasta meal had heaps of bacon and mushrooms and all the other meals were very generous and well presented.More

0 for service. 0 for food. 0 for atmosphere. Over an hour wait for food. We had to chase down our waitress to re-order drinks. We will never frequent this establishment again. Bar staff & wait staff couldn't have been less interested !! Food was...well over-priced for quantity & quality.More

We needed to eat and found it in passing and thought a pub meal will do, but were surprisingly happy with our choice. The food was well presented and fresh with a reasonable wine selection at a reasonable price. Wait time a bit long but...it was peak hour Friday night, but staff were very good.More

Really good portion sizes too! Love the fit out for the restaurant. It's really family friendly. Good selection of beer on tap. Heaps of parking. The staff were really friendly and the food came quick and hot.

As a family we've been there before. We visited on a Friday night around 6 o'clock. The place was very busy but still there were tables available. Service and food come fast enough. The place is a bit noisy. Most of the patrons were tradies...at the bar side. On the restaurant there were families with grown up children. They have screens everywhere so sports people can follow the action with no sounds. The patrons make all sort of noise. The food orders are fairly sized, never to small. The meat doness as requested. The flavours as expected. Prices a bit inflated.More

I was really impressed with the vegetarian options here. I selected the Chop Chop Salad vege option with haloumi (the regular version come with bacon if that's your thing). It's a generous main-sized salad consisting of shredded lettuce, cherry tomatoes, feta, cucumber, boiled egg, and...a really tasty vinaigrette. The haloumi was tender and delicious. No raw onions or limp lettuce here. Keen to come back and try the bean and lentil nachos too.More

One of our favourites for a great value family meal. We visit often on a Saturday evening. We love the buzz of the restaurant, bar and sports TV. Great family menu, friendly service and delicious familiar ‘Kiwi’ food. This is a fun place to be....Plenty of parking !More

Have been to One Good Horse twice now. First for some drinks and pub platters. Platters were big and easily shared around the group of us. Second time was for a family meal and didn't have anything to fault. It was quiz night and a...large group of people in the restaurant and still the service was great and didn't have to wait long for food. We all left feeling very full barely able to walk and eat our desserts. Great food! Would definitely come back here on our travels to ChristchurchMore
