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.

Meals were better that I thought. Rack of lamb very good. Drinks nice and cheap from adjacent bar. Not much ambience. How come the bar staff wear ties?Must be the only people in Fox Glacier that wear ties.

Great pub food. It's not your conventional pub, it's a little more fancy. Got the chicken and the sticky date pudding for dessert. Great food, cannot recommend the food enough. I do have one criticism, while the wait staff's service was amazing and very helpful and everything you would want. When I went, I would have preferred if they had... More

The White Pub is in the centre of town so you can't miss it. You can order dinner then have a beer or two and a game of pool. Staff were friendly and helpful, the beer was cold and the food was delicious. I lost at pool but what the heck.

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.

We had some lamb rack as a main order. It was fantastic. A little on the small portion but was served the way that we ordered it. Medium. The service was good. the place of the side of the restaurant was clean and quit. It is connected to the bar with some pool tables and a little louder.

Very surprised at cost of the drinks which were very reasonable . Very strange place this - not sure if it's because it's a ski winter resort. We didn't really warm to it!

We had the salmon and it good, but overpriced at $21 USD. Small portions, so don't go there hungry. Menu was also very limited. Food prices are high in this area, so be careful of your expectations.

Serving staff was very pleasant. Broad menu with plenty to choose from but only one vegetarian meal that I could see. Short wait for our meals to come. Meals large. My beef burger was great but my husband's snapper was disappointing. A friend who was with us had lamb rack which he said was the most tender lamb he had... More
