This place has improved out of sight, the service now comes with a smile and in a timely fashion. The meals were just excellent. Well presented, generous and tasty. Well done new people, this is awesome for a small town like wanganui.
My husband and I went there last night on a whim. We did a road trip to Whanganui for fun and a local man suggested this place. I'll admit the service is lacking. The servers were friendly but quite slow. We happened on a steak...night there. I'm a eye filet girl but scotch was on order last night. A big fat 300g piece of beautiful medium-rare perfection for both of us. We asked for sides of fried onions and they were also beautifully seasoned (it's those small things that matter). One of us had rosti and veggies and the other fries and salad. No issues. We would totally go back again. Chef got a $20 tip for a drink after work from us. Super yummy steak! Thank you :)More
We had a great dinner here & the staff were really helpful & accommodating with options for my coeliac partner.
The portions are large the wine portions & prices are really good also. Being able to book first table was a bonus.
Went there for lunch trying to find a restaurant over looking the river (nearly impossible). We were not disappointed the service was good and food great with little twists example loaded fries with vietnamese flavours and bacon and blue cheese pizza.
Next time we pass...through Wanganui we will be stopping here againMore
Prawn cocktail starter was beautiful, though some lettuce was brown. My sloppy Joe burger was o
Nice til I discovered raw chicken...so I left it on the plate, i mentioned it to waitress who said she would speak to the chef, meanwhile we went to...pay and again mentioned the raw chicken..she simply said oh that's a shame, no apology or discount....she was very blasé...wouldn't go backMore
“Pork belly with Kimchi slaw”?? “Undressed coleslaw garnishing a bland piece of pork with decidedly tasteless sauces” is more accurate. Disappointing. Service was efficient, but not particularly polite.
My wife and I had lunch there, shared a really nice pizza with generous and tasty topping, cooked perfectly.
The service was excellent, friendly and prompt.
The decor is very relaxing and the place is spotlessly clean.
We enjoyed our visit and wished we had...found this place earlier in our visit to Wanganui.More
Average pub meal - limited options for meal out over new year period. Pleased to get table here but disappointing service with waitress who we saw once to take orders with lack of knowledge of menu. Surf and turf well rated but other meals disappointing...particularly pork belly.More
