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.

Good service, great food. Seated on time after booking online. Menu was varied so plenty to choose from. Staff very friendly and helpful. I chose one of the steak meals, very good price and cooked to perfection, the sides were tasty and included in the...price. Recommend to other diners in Invercargill, make sure you book ahead as the restaurant is not big, you can dine in the bar if you want a bar meal or snack with your mates. Not too many good value pubs around, long May it last.More

Great restaurant- booked online and when we arrived we were shown to a table near the fire. Menu was extensive from small plates to larger meals. Both meals were excellent. Highly recommend this to anyone visiting or living in Invercargill.

We have been here several times on our trips to Invercargill and they never fail to impress. The menu is comprehensive and there are even light options for those who can’t manage a big main meal. The service is exceptional and a credit to the...management. We were treated so well by the young waiter and others who served us. The meals were absolutely beautiful. The restaurant has a lovely cosy warm atmosphere and the tables are very well presented. There is a great carpark too. Thank you Thar and Feather😊More

Extremely unpleasant to be sitting eating tea and all you can hear is the extremely rude manager yelling and disrespecting people who looked to be picking up orders. Will absolutely not come back after seeing and listening to the way she treats people. Good luck...to her business 👍🏻More

Save your time and money if you want class and proper hospitality, we arrived after an hour journey to this place, the Maori lady served us walking in with a “no were closed”, not even a “Hello”, at 7:30pm when on their website it says...10pm? we booked days prior for 7:30pm, this imbecile manager opened her book and to her surprise their was our booking. She said “ugh go sit down”. The entire night was ruined by her unpleasant, unprofessional and just disgusting attitude. I will never recommend this to anyone, the food was DRY and tasteless.

Fresh steamed vegetables with perfectly cooked pork- tender meat and crispy crackle on a generous creamy mash; just as described on menu and what I hoped for. Nice ambience, friendly service. Other meals I saw going out looked good too... all looked good size portions.

We were a party of 5, three adults and two children. We were seated promptly and were impressed by the fact two coloring sheets and pens were on the table already. The meals came out quickly even though the restaurant was busy on a Friday...night. A nice touch was having the kids meals come out first. Our meals consisted of two Chicken Sage and Salads and one roast of the day. The kids demolished there hotdogs and chicken wings. Special thanks to Carter for her friendly professional service. Your service made our evening at the Thar and Feather all the more enjoyable. Well done Team.More
