Had dinner there, the whitebait was to die for so light and fluffy, blue cod meal heaps of flavour, best vinaigrette I have had in a couple of years, owner even gave me the recipe... thank you. Highly recommend stopping in for a meal.

Delicious, melt in the mouth beef cheeks on a smooth butternut mash. Pork belly was enjoyed by two of our group.

A charming and historic tavern visited in the quiet season after the closure of Otago Central Rail cycling. Good food to complement the character of the tavern.

Real experience and great Otago Hospitality. The landlady goes out of her way to give you a good time. She even lent us her car. Very comfortable accommodation and wonderful meals in cosy surroundings.

Great lunch while we were on the Rail Trail. Generous portions and great atmosphere. Busy place and I can see why. Lovely to sit inside with all the history on the walls or outside in the lovely gardens with the smallest post office in NZ

Great cosy stop with delicious food! We came in here to seek shelter after getting soaked by the rain - the soup and fire were amazing to lift our spirits! Thanks for a lovely afternoon stop!
