We had dinner in the restaurant side. The service and food was great. We ordered the special lamb rack and it was fantastic. Mid. rare. with garlic sauce on it. Price was on the cheap side for New Zealand.

We went here for dinner and had crispy pork belly and a steak. The pork belly was nice however no crackling. The steak was average being very charred and fatty, was served with a crazy amount of chips and salad wasn't very well dressed.

We were staying at the attached Heartland Hotel and after looking at the menus of several other restaurants in town, we decided to eat here. The soup was delicious and the main courses were very good although on the smaller side. Good service.
