We were a family of eight, found a great corner lounge with table & stools where we all fitted in easily. Great staff and drinks and nibbles were dished up quickly.

We went in for tea and a few drinks after driving to Queenstown. Food was very hearty and big portions! Definitely recommend the lamb shanks or sirloin steak! Only downside was we ordered a side of steamed vegetables and most of it was peas!

Yes, it was pub fare which was good. Price was good. The food seemed to take more time to arrive even though they weren't overly busy, on a Sunday night.
