My family and my boyfriend recently visited Geraldine and went to the Village Inn a few times. Every time we went we had great food and the staff were extremely helpful and welcoming. The lamb shanks were definitely a highlight but anything that was ordered off the menu was tasty and fresh. A great spot!

Good value, home style cooking in a friendly environment. Pork roast and lamb shanks were great. Large servings and quick service. Pub like environment with adjoining restaurant. Pick of Geraldine eateries for mine.

The Village Inn is a pleasant enough setting, being comfortable, clean, well looked after, and warm - a good thing at this time of year - a nice, hospitable place for a drink, but the food is expensive for a Canterbury rural town and the sports bar with is kind of a turn-off.

Service was excellent- especially the spanish/latin american (can't remember which) lady. Friendly and helpful. We both had the lamb chop- big and scrumptious. Just under $30 for the lamb chop, which we thought was maybe too pricey (this was the beginning of our NZ adventure, so by the end we realized it was quite reasonable). Would come again, if ever in Geraldine. Good pit stop. Also seemed to be open till quite late (by NZ southern island terms at least).

A meet for drinks with friends and enjoyed the selection on the wine list - Graham Norton - then a move to the bar area for the snack menu - our platter was amazing for $28 - so much food & best of all ample bread & crackers to go with the food - we also loved the supreme pizza - so much topping - so much food we had to do takeaway for the next day - great value for $$
