My husband and I dined here on 4th January the pizza we ordered was ok, we sat at an outside table that we had to ask to be cleaned, with COVID rules the way they are at the present point of time we felt the...cleaning could have been a lot better and also the arms of the chairs wiped down, we thought the outside tables and chairs in general needed a really good scrub with hot soapy water. Another thing that we don’t like is the children’s play area .. when children are playing in the play hut with sand and this drifts over our food, this whole area needs tidied up eg. a load of gravel around the outside tables that are over by the play area…..better still get rid of the sand pit and the hut! It’s a really filthy area. We won’t come back here to dine if we have to sit outside amongst the dust.More

We always love going to the F&T when we are in AT. The new refurb looks really great and the outdoor garden is vastly improved, awesome job by management. The F&T is a great example of a busy restaurant that performs seamlessly even when super...busy, massive credit to Managenent and staff. The drinks and food were great as usual and it was fun a few nights earlier when they had live Irish music. The only minor concern was when I learned that the London barman was a QPR supporter which is always dodgy, but he seemed very pleasant which was a nice surprise, just joking. Thanks F&T!!More

Had a nice burger and a beer, service was great up until our meal arrived which was incorrect, the manager (I assume) came out to tell us what our order was (not ask) and said she would talk to the chef and see what he...could do. We didn't see her again but our burgers did turn up which were very nice. Clearly a miscommunication but sadly not dealt with in a nice manner. The waitress who served us was very nice.More

We dined here the other day and The weather was beautiful so we sat outside in the garden area. Great little area with a great atmosphere. Loved the range of tap beers from the locals suppliers and the food matched well. Highly recommend

Stopped by our favourite pub for dinner and drinks while in Arrowtown. They have recently renovated the bar, making the bar a bit longer. The decor is still reminiscent of an English pub (which I love). Great selection of beers and wines. Food was amazing...as always. The staff are really friendly and make you feel welcome. Highly recommend stopping by when in ArrowtownMore

We went here two days in a row. The pizzas are so yum! My fav was the chicken one with Thai green curry sauce on it. Also the bowls of chips were huge. Great value for money in a nice outdoor area. The outdoor heaters...are amazing and the staff are friendly. Thanks team, will be back.More

Nice ambience, friendly service, menu looked really great, but all three of our dishes were just a little disappointing... it's average pub food with bought pizza bases, etc. However we'd go there again for a beer and bar food, hot chips, etc...I think our expectations...were a little too high for the meals because they are written up so well.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!
