Have been to Luggate Hotel for several meals. Awesome meals weather it be lunch or dinner. As we now live in Luggate, it is great having an amazing eating and drinking establishment at our back door. Staff are all great and very friendly. AND SUNDAY EVENING ROASTS are YUMMMMMMMMO.

I always closed my eyes and drove through Luggate as quick as I could thinking this was a one horse town and not worth stopping (is it me or those banjo's in the background?). UNTIL I did some reasearch on Tripadvisor looking for local restaraunts to try out and Luggate pub came up with rave reviews! We decided to stop... More

We visit the Luggate hotel most times we come to Wanaka. It has a fantastic atmosphere with roaring fires keeping the whole place warm. Unfortunately we made a booking for a early Saturday evening and were one of the first to order food but kept being told that our selected dishes was not available. This pattern continued for a number... More

Visit this place and find a warming log fire decent food and decent ales. Generally away from the loud noisy style bar of queenstown or wanaka.

We are frequent travellers to Wanaka but having never actually been to Luggate we went for a drive and happened upon this hotel. The staff were very friendly and welcoming and the interior is full of character with wonderful open fires and leather couches. Now I have discovered it I will be sure to return.

We heard this place was a great lunch stop for when riding the trail along the river and it did not disappoint. From the outside its deceiving but inside or out back in the beer garden you are in an oasis. The service was friendly and the food was creative and tasty. Five types of pies to choose from and...

The garden bar here is fantastic, a wee sun trap. Great beers and vibes, the staff are really friendly and helpful. The food is really overpriced.

We decided to skip out a night from Wanaka and found this pub to be a welcome surprise. Salmon and venison cooked to perfection, sharp service and generous portion of accompanying salad and roasted vegetables. Highly recommended.
