Went here twice. Once on Sunday afternoon for free music. Had some beers and a pizza. Shared a table with some other folks. Full of a wide mix of families, singles, locals and tourists. But all very chill. We got drinks about 7pm one night....More

This place has some really unusual, delightful beers ranging from the sour to the dark variety. Their food is well-prepared and very different. They used to have rabbit pie on the menu, but sadly, this has been removed. This has been replaced with rabbit lasagna....More

I doubt it, but to be honest I don't know. I assumed it was a walk-in pub arrangement, but maybe they take bookings too. It would be easy enough to give them a call to ask. Enjoy Arrowtown!
