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.
Learn more about our review moderation.

Having travelled all over NZ I can honestly say this is still the best pie in NZ! Great pies, great selection. Great service. Well worth the trip to Invercargill

We only had the opportunity to eat hear once…as we were in a hurry to continue our road trip. That’s really too bad as the meat pies are truly excellent! We had the Butter Chicken one and the Creamy Chicken Farmstay. Both highly recommended.

We had heard from some food writers that these were the best meat pies in New Zealand - and they are! We tried the mince/cheese, seafood, chicken/brie/cranberry and steak/mushroom and all were delicious! They are busy from the time they open in the morning too....When our visit in Invercargill was over we picked up some sandwiches and pastries to take in the car with us, which were also really good. They are on the main road and have easy parking there too so you can quickly stop and pick up your pies. When we are next in Invercargill we will be stopping again to enjoy their meat pies.More

While we didn't get a pie, we did go in and have a look because it was so highly recommended. What I can say is the line was long, and the pie case was soooo well stocked. Just sorry it was the wrong time of...day for us. Next time for sure.More

Had to try this place as the name cracks me up. We all became fat bastards after trying this place because it was delicious. I got the Mutton and my wife got the farmhouse chicken. They were both amazing and very filling. Can't wait to...return to be a fat bastard again.More
