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.

The USP of this pub was that you could go every night, have a different main and beer and a consistent bill at the end of your holiday. No more. Literally nothing separates this from every other place to eat on the wharf. But I...guess they are working that out themselves now there are three people sat outside versus it being packed all the time.More

I gave a 5 star review complete with photos of my meal for my Beef Wellington in 2023. This year with new management is not even average and almost double the price. I will not be returning.

The table where we sat was dirty and sticky. There didn’t appear to be anyone wiping them down. We ordered chicken Caesar wraps , which to be fair were generous in size. However, my husband’s chicken in the wrap was very undercooked . The staff...did replace it , however we had lost our appetite by the time it came and were put off by the poor quality of the first wrap so couldn’t face eating the second one .More

We were in Queenstown for three nights and a combination of bad weather, the marathon weekend and everywhere being heaving meant we ate here every night. We had six different mains between us, and they were all great, good quality and not too expensive. Place...was busy every night so the atmosphere was good too. A good selection of beers and wine, and an option to get a bigger beer at a discount, most enjoyable.More

We ate our first night in Queenstown at The Pub. The outdoor seating was great for people watching, and the service was friendly. The drink selections are good. The food tastes like home cooking. I had the barbecue rib platter which is huge enough to...feed two people. The rib sauce was delicious, and the ribs were tender.More

The pub is one of the many places located around the Steamer Wharf. This one is located on the Beach Street end of the building towards Earnslaw Park. They do have quite a bit of outdoor seeing so it might be easy to miss the...entrance to the place. Keep an eye out for the door and the menu located just outside it. The indoor area is quite large and has normal and taller tables to sit at. The menu has a range of standard pub food and drinks. You order at the bar and get a number to bring back to the table. I ended up grabbing some cheesy garlic bread and onion rings and both were nice. They also did have a Beef Wellington on the menu which looked nice. The portions were decent for snacks and a decent amount for sharing. It was a nice place to grab some food and relax for a bit.More

Went walking round Queenstown looking for a dinner option on a Thursday night. Pub on Wharf had a good number of food options for a great price. Went with work colleagues as we were at a work conference. The menu had something for us all....Meals came quickly and as we were all hungry the plates ended up empty! Good number of fries with my meal and a delicious all round mealMore

Cheapest Ribs in Queenstown! Our food was very nice and service not to bad. The establishment was fairly busy being a public holiday and was quite full of kids (who were running around getting in staff and other patrons way). And I have to agree...with a few other reviews about staff ignoring you so you had to go to the bar to find out what the food ordering procedure was. There was nobody at the door to guide you to a table/seat or advise on what you should do! Plus (as far as I know), this was the only establishment that we went to that night to charge 15% surcharge while others either charged 10% or nothing at all! Not a good look Pub on the Wharf.More
