Enjoying a glass of local Pinot noir in a cosy, friendly pub - what could be better? The food at the other tables look and smell great. The huge variety of craft beers look great for a future trip too!

I doubt it, but to be honest I don't know. I assumed it was a walk-in pub arrangement, but maybe they take bookings too. It would be easy enough to give them a call to ask. Enjoy Arrowtown!
