We decided to eat here after reading positive review and was a little disappointed. I had scrambled egg and bacon on toast and the egg was allotments strange on taste and texture. My wife had pancakes that were missing the banana as advertised. The Female...member of staff who may have been the owner didn’t wear a face mask behind the counter or when coming to the table. Wouldn’t recommend.More

Thank you for serving us the delicious country chicken. We ate like a hungry bear! Great value for money and Jazz was very friendly and smiled all the time. We loved talking to him. This was our lunch stopover at Kaikoura before we headed off...to Christchurch.More

We stopped for lunch and the chicken was made fresh. The coating was crispy and delicious. Fries/chips were just ok but the coleslaw was really good. The woman running the place was working hard but still very friendly. Could’ve done without the colorful locals hanging...about swearing.More

Firstly, what a lovely bunch of people working there. So genuinely nice and hard working. Secondly wow the chicken was of an amazing quality, so so much meat on every single piece of chicken with a great coating on the skin. Served super hot and...amazing in a plastic free way (way to go waaahooo!) Cheers guys for the nicest last meal of 2019.More
