Amazing food, drinks, service and atmosphere. We booked here for a hearty Saturday meal, saw the desserts and couldn’t say no. Absolutely delicious mains, epic desserts and great service. Safe to say we booked again for Sunday night and the roast was excellent. Definitely book...and eat here if passing through Te Anau.More

I know its a tourist town,but it is winter now with not many overseas tourists so I think that trying to "rip" the local tourist like I think you are,you dont get my support. Blue Cod (one small fillet-$39.00) with some over cooked chips (and...I mean overcooked even to the eye) and a nice salad is expensive.I was told when I questioned the waitress as to the chips and the size of the piece of fish that she would give me a 10% discount because of the overcooked chips. She was very pleasant to us and I felt sorry that she had to deal with someone-elses poor standards.Drinks expensive. We were around the lakes region for nine days and eating out and this was the worst value for money.More

We ate dinner here on recommendation from our hotel (Radfords) and it was such a hit the kids asked to return on our 2nd night for dinner. Mum & Dad had Roasts of the Day - delish and kids had a wide choice of their...favourites which were eaten to empty plates!More

Came in after a day spent out exploring the Milford sound, the staff were great and friendly, I had the beef schnitzel and it was super tasty, I would go back and eat that same meal over again. Would totally recommend this place.

Been here a few times over the years and it is still as reliable as ever to deliver a warm, southern welcome and darn good food and ale! Pub grub as it should be, done well.

We tried the bar first to check out the menu and went back for dinner a couple of hours later. Service was very good and the food (we had SCHNITTY) excellent. House red wine below average

Stopped in here for a beer after a long day cycling and then the next night for dinner. The staff are really friendly and it is the sort of place you feel just fine eating on your own. Good selection of options on the menu...and caters for vegan and vegetarian. Good range of beers on tap tooMore

Had a great evening with a group of friends. Meals were very good, great service, prices reasonable and would definitely recommend. Good choice for gluten free options which is important when two of us are coeliac.

We stopped in here with friends for breakfast as we have been several times before and they didn’t disappoint. Good meals and prices, so will be back again.
