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.

Called for evening dinner as we had read the reviews and was close to our accommodation. A real step back in time (in a good way) 👍 playing 80s music and remember pubs in the UK being like this. A reasonable selection of pub fare,...absolutely fine, and with a bonus on Tuesday night of 2 for 1!More

My partner can’t stop raving about this place, it’s all he would ever want in a pub - pool table, dart board, great beer and delicious food. The girl serving us was so sweet and friendly (sorry we didn’t get your name).

We had the nicest evening. Great menu and generous portions. Such a friendly place with the loveliest staff who could not do enough to ensure you have a great night. One of the best steaks I've had in ages. Can not recommend highly enough.

A little way from town, but I can see why people rave over this place. Lady who single handedly managed bar AND restaurant was so friendly and took time to talk to everyone. She could teach many hospo staff a thing or three. Meals amazing...and a wide variety to choose from. Had pork crackle as an entre! desserts superb. Ate too much but one of the best meals we have had for ages. ThanksMore

Extremely disappointed! Owners are mean. They will harass and argue with you if you mention anything wrong with the food(the food is very inconsistent). Sent back a steak that was raw and cold, kindly asked for it to be cooked for another couple of minutes...and was met with an angry owner who was unreasonable and awful and argued for a solid 5 minutes and did not return with any food at all. Made myself and my family feel frustrated and upset. This has happened on multiple occasions to myself and others that I know, including issues with paying for meals that we did not receive. I would not recommendMore

Shocking service and food. Went with a large group , some finished their meals before others got theirs. Female manager argued with us when we complained about undercooked chicken and raw steak . Won't be returning

We drove to the Woodstock Hotel which very looks run down from the outside! We entered by an old door to bar area and were warmly greeted. They were expecting us and there were other groups booked for dinner also. Quite an extensive menu to...choose from - everything from burgers, to pizza to pasta and more. All printed on a crumpled piece of paper. And there was a dessert menu, laminated on one side! No idea how you do that. My husband had a steak and I had the chicken in filo pastry. Both came with a bit of salad & some chips. It was tasty but certainly not the most amazing meal we had but way better than I thought it would be. Overall, a very cheap eat out for NZ.More

This pub/restaurant has a lovely vibe with views over the river and live music most Fridays. Parking is easy, service was prompt and friendly and the meals appeared to be good value on the menu which was what intially what was the deciding factor in...picking the tavern for where we would go to dinner. Sadly the kids, hubby and I didn't really enjoy what was served - steak that was predominantly gristle, boiled chicken, tasteless meals and gravy and heat and eat pizza for the kids meals.More
