I came in for the blackboard lunch menu - outstanding value. An excellent meal, much better than the usual fare for the same price. Great fish, great chips, great salad. The service was excellent, the atmosphere most enjoyable.

We had a 30th family dinner. We were able to reserve the courtyard for our table of 15. We had lovely service from the staff. Drinks constantly refilled. All meals arrived within seconds of each other and were superb! Heaters above us to keep us...warm when needed. Great spot with hearty mealsMore

We had a drink here late afternoon before going off in search of the evasive little blue penguins! We enjoyed the atmosphere and staff, so booked for dinner and they even let us leave some of our gear in the office. What a great find,...this was a great pub, with fabulous food. 2 days into our South Island adventure and our foodie expectations have been set extremely high. Fantastic staff, fantastic food, lovely surroundings - what more can a North Islander want.More

Decided to have dinner here regardless of the fact the menu looked very basic pub grub. We were lucky to get a table on a Thursday night as booked out and can see why, the food is definitely a step above usual fare, our burger...was Devine and the assorted dishes going past were equally impressive.More

Loved this quaint little pub (we only saw the first room so maybe more space out the back). The food was good and staff really friendly and managed to squeeze us in on a busy Saturday evening when we had just arrived from Dunedin in...the dark and knew no other place in town.More
