My friend and I enjoyed hot chips and a beer hear. The view of the water ( make sure the tide is in) and the old English look of the pub made us feel relaxed as we sat outside in the lovely garden. Would be a great place to take kids, family or anyone lol

Wow what a presentation of food. Team work was out of this world. I have traveled many places between NZ & UK. Including stop overs in posh hotels. This was up there with the big companies. Just try it. Well done having to cater for over a 100.

Had a hamburger with chips and the trimmings and it was very tasty. Also had deals on wine, both bottle and by the glass.Good selection of beers. Staff friendly and on the ball. Not the most lengthy of menus but enough to cater for most tastes.

We recently met friends here for lunch while visiting Nelson. Our lunches were lovely - fresh, good portion sizes and exactly as described. I can recommend the fish and chips - the fish was super fresh with a lovely crunchy batter. The setting was idyllic with the large garden being a popular place for families to eat and drink in the sun while taking in the view.

Called in with friends after a walk, for coffee and scones and muffins.

Both the scone and the muffin were close to be uneatable. Very dry, tasteless, old, hard, really would be the worst i have ever tasted.

Service was slow, and there were not many diners

Coffee was lukewarm and did not have a nice big coffee flavour
