This pub is an absolute must to go to in Queenstown. All the dinners were only $20 and were gourmet quality meals not your typical pub feed.

Like I said, good selection of beer and good views. Try the local Pilsner on tap. Closes a bit early for my liking.

We have got some great local wines available, and crazily the more local you get the more pricey they seem to be. But the real quality local winemakers produce small batches that are primarily only available to the local market, and they don't mass produce...More
