Hello, MOst people will read between the lines of this ridiculous review and see that you obviously hold a grudge for some reason or you have an interest in some other local rival business. We do not use frozen chips of any description at Riccarton...More

Don’t think they expected us even though we reserved a table, that’s the way it felt. Waiter didn’t know the specials. Food was good, shame about the rugby noise. I understand people enjoy watching the rugby, however this should be separated from the dining tables....More
