I had the lamb shank which was very good. My husband was also pleased with his choice. The beer was tasty too. Good value for the price.

The seafood chowder hit the spot on a cold rainy day. The fish & chips were well prepared--especially the chips. They became the standard we compared others to on the trip.

We waited 55minutes for our meal...to be fair we were told it would be 40. The kids pizzas unfortunately were frozen in the middle. If you are going to heat food up in the microwave at last make the service quicker.

My wife and I loved this place while we stopped off the Queenstown. So easy to just pop in, have a beer, and stay for food. The staff are very accommodating and the food was excellent.

Started us off on eating at a few of these venues around NZ - great value, great food, and great service!

After a decent stroll you'll feel very happy to try their tap beers. And after relaxing you'll find the menu pretty good. We really enjoyed our meals and the friendly service. Highly recommended.
