Stopped in for a beer. Nice pub. Friendly barman and had a laugh with the décor in the toilets! Unfortunately didn't stay for a meal as the menu didn't have a lot to choose from

Apparently you get banned if you don’t give a good rating/review. The place isn’t that good, must be a few people banned lol

Donlt give this place a poor Rating even if you think it deserves it at the time of your visit, otherwise you will be served with a banned notice like I was, although that maybe it's only issued to locals, l

Outside this place is a huge sign claiming to be Seafood specialists. Faulse and missleading. We went in for dinner expecting a high standard of seafood dishers. It seems that all they have is a deep fryer and cook up prepacked fish fingers and fish...More

Basic pub meals, plenty of it, but not as good as home-cooked. One had the small roast $13, another had the large $22 one and there was hardly any difference in size. A lovely young woman was serving at the bar, otherwise everything else was...More

We stayed in the overnight carpark and went in to the Crow for a meal. We were pleasantly surprised at the choices and quality of the meals. There is a really warm welcoming atmosphere and clearly popular with the locals.

Nestled in the picturesque town of Picton at the top of the South Island, New Zealand, and at the gateway to the beautiful Marlborough Sounds, is the ‘Crow Tavern. A home away from home for the local residents of Picton and tourists as well. Located on the town square it is the only Tavern in town and is surrounded by a residential area. The Crow has a full restaurant, public bar, lounge bar, bottle store, smoking area, gaming room and garden bar. It is a place where business is done, jokes are told and celebrations are held. The ladies feel comfortable in the bar and the staff and patrons are one big family. Customers share their family occasions here and sit outside in the pretty garden bar all summer long. In winter the huge open fire is a big draw card along with the big screen TVs for watching the rugby.Around the tavern are many photos of local rugby teams, fishing excursions and boats in precarious positions previously owned by local patrons.The Tavern was first built in 1855 and has been rebuilt twice since. The Crow is one of the few places in Marlborough with history of the area on the walls. The restaurant has a wall dedicated to ‘The Echo’, one of the oldest ships in the world which is now beached at Shelly beach near the town center.
