My wife and I stopped off in the area whilst touring New Zealand. Pleasant place to dine. It's nice and quaint with downstairs or upstairs dinning. The food and service is good and the place is very welcoming.

We wanted a quick bite to eat late in the afternoon and found this place. It had both indoor and outdoor seating and has a good pub menu.

Enjoy the ambience of our fully restored 1876 stone building. Open for lunch and brunch from 11am with dinner being served from 5pm. Our al fresco setting is extremely popular during the summer months or take a step back in time in our beautiful interior for fireside dining. Our food is classic and hearty, focusing on slow cooked New Zealand produce, Aged steaks from the grill, and fresh seasonal produce. An excellent array of Central Otago wines. Feel free to join us for a full dining experience or enjoy some beverages and tapas.
