Great atmosphere with wonderful outdoor area. Food is really well presented and the scampi is the best I've had. Found the service a little slow at times.

Great menu and very reasonable. The staff were very helpful and we sat outside under the shade sails. The inside was like an English pub and this bought back many great memories of my recent holiday in England.

Late of the ferry from Wellington and ready to eat, we stopped at Captain’s Daughter with no expectation of anything better than standard pub grub. Service was a bit slow but the food was delicious. Strongly recommend.
