The good was nothing short of great - I had the roast pork belly, and my wife had beef cheeks, and both were excellent. To be fair, we ate there during peak season, but the service was a bit slow - everything together took well...More

Not only is the beer excellent and the food marvellous, this place had some of the best music going everytime we went in. Inside or out, a little oasis from the turmoil of glacier visits.......

We had a good time over here- I had some good seafood with lemon fish, my husband had some green curry. Rather go for seafood - the curry had cream in the sauce and didn´t feel like a curry - everything else was good!

Had a great dinner outside with my love in Jan 2018! The NZ mussels were divine with a glass of Sauv Blanc. That view of the glaciers and wild sheep walking around the area wow, it was a beautiful dinner and memory!!

What a lovely spot! The $20 meals are great value. We had the red curry and pork roast - perfect for a very rainy day. Good service and friendly staff.

As warm and welcoming, as a traditional English Carriage House. The white walls and exposed rafters are adorned with riding tack, farm tools and other historic artifacts. While the wooden floors, wagon wheel bar stools and open fireplace add to the warmth.
