My wife and I stayed in Methven for one night and we used the Brown pub for an evening drink. We found it very welcoming the staff and the locals were so friendly. The food was good and plenty of it. Would certainly use again. Merv.

Meal and service was good BUT please watch menu my daughter who is allergic to nuts ordered a vega dish ( middle eastern )which had no mention of nuts used. Straight a way she went into arrest and we had a very worrying fast trip to the Ashburton Hospital where they spent five hours to get her stable. PLEASE chefs...

First of all we are glad that you were happy with your meal and our service. I do hope your daughter has recovered fully from what must have been a frightening experience. I have spoken to the staff and checked the ingredients for the meal which I assume was the falafels? In response to your comment for chefs, I would...

After looking at the Blue Pub who were adding a 15% surcharge for a public holiday we enter across the road to The Brown Pub. Alot of people had the same idea but we shared a table with 3 others and had a great meal.

My wife and I had an evening meal in the restaurant of the Brown Pub. Lots of choice on the menu - my wife chose the burger and I ordered ribeye steak. The steak came out tender and cooked to perfection with a rich mushroom sauce (would have appreciated some real mushrooms rather than just flavour) with home made chips...

We had dinner at the a brown Pub with our boys (6&4). Staff were friendly and welcoming. Toys for the kids and they were very accommodating of the kids. Good was typical pub food but they did it well. Exactly what you would expect.

Thanks for the detailed review - it makes it so much easier to remedy any problems if we know exactly what they are! We will pass on your comments to the chef both about the ribs and the burger. We're glad you love the ribs (they are awesome!) and it sounds as though the burger can be easily sorted. Cheers...

I ate several dinners here and loved the food. Huge portions Ordered my first jugs of Hard Cider. The locals were warm and welcoming. The locally made sausage was good and well as my first New Zealand steak was cooked perfectly. I did not stay in the hotel just ate at the restaurant.

The hotel and pub were nice but the staff were incredible. We had a bad car accident and they helped us out in every way possible - kept the kitchen open late, lent us chargers, gave us ice for our injuries, let us sit in the corner and use the internet in the daytime, stored our stuff and the waitress...

Good to hear and we hope you have recovered from the accident. There is something special about this town and no more so than when you need help. That's just one of the many reasons why Methven is where we live - amazing people. Take care and we hope to see you again sometime.

Beautiful meals here especially the chicken Snitzel. Very good pub meals and lots to choose from off the menu. Great staff as well. The wait staff are very efficient and it's a nice little country pub
