The staff were very friendly. Menu choices were good, and the quality of the food was excellent. We were able to choose to sit inside or outside which was nice.

Big fan of the owners Aaron & Cate. Patroned at their precious establishment around the corner by cave rock. Aarons new menu is an extension and reflection as an international cook. Big A making big meals with even bigger tastes. I struggled to finish the ribs but man was it good! Didn't get to try the breakfast challenge or any of his newer creations from the menu but I at least know where I'm heading each time I visit home.

The Village Inn is a MUST for anyone visiting Christchurch. I highly recommend a trip out to Sumner to have lunch, dinner, a few drinks or even coffee at this place. The staff were so lovely. It is a place run by two locals and you can tell the owners work hard to make it such a great establishment as they were the ones who were actually in the kitchen and behind the bar. Very good service and so friendly. The Chef Aaron was a good laugh too ! Outdoor seating area had a good cozy vibe and there were plenty of nice sunny spots to sit. The food was delicious. Not only that but they were very generous sized portions for the price you pay. You can tell everything in this place has been done or made with love. Awesome local and craft Beer selection and some great NZ wines too. Family friendly and Wheelchair accessable also. Would definitely be interested in going on a Sunday for their Sunday sessions Music and 'Roast meals with Home made Yorkshire puddings'. I read on the notice board that they do a pub Quiz too. What a gem of a place !!!!

Fun bar/restaurant with super-hospitable staff. Good drinks list and food. Understated local place that you can eat or drink and enjoy yourself. These guys were great.
