We had looked at this before but it just didn't look like much. The ambience isn't anything to write home about, but we decided to give it a go anyway. Our reward was one of the best meals we have ever had in Hanmer, the food was delicious! Hubby had the bacon and chicken burger and declared it the best... More

After a very nice meal at Whatever Cafe and bar we retired to here for drinks. Great atmosphere. music not too loud so you could still talk to your mates and it was nice and warm.

LOVE going to Alpine Village Inn. Our trips to Hanmer always include my partner with a pint at Alpine Village Inn while I'm shopping, then I will always text to ensure a glass of wine is ready for me on my arrival. Great food, great service!

We couldn't get into our restaurant of choice and eventually ended up here, the AVI as the locals call it. It is very much a pub and the decor is rather tired however in a town where meals are expensive their prices are quite reasonable. There were 4 of us and one is gluten intolerant. When asking about gluten in... More

Wow, OMG This would have to be the worst attitude & service by a Restaurant owner I have ever experienced. After ordering our meals we sat down and our hot chocolates came out very smartly. great service here, however they tasted a bit strange. after a couple of minutes our scrimp cocktails arrived and they were very nice. However from... More

All the locals said it was so wonderful. Only thing on the menu is a steak. The meal was ok but you can get a better steak and meal at Applebees

We arrived for lunch but what a disappointment. The food was cold, obviously not freshly made and didn't even look appealing. The food was cold in the center. Yuk ! We will not be going back there again thank you.

We were a group of 10 that had made a booking for dinner, we ordered our food at the counter and paid then were informed at the table 5 minutes later that there was no more battered cod on the menu and we needed to change our order. Three people changed their order and the inn sucked up the extra... More

We had been here before a number of years ago and it was great. Now it is poor. Food was very plain and had no taste. Service was very unfriendly. Tables and chairs could do with updating. The price you pay for the meal you could go to a nice place down the road.
