We dropped in to watch the rugby. Upstairs was crowded, but downstairs we found a table near fire to watch the rugby final (damn you highlanders).

Awesome atmosphere, especially when the Highlanders play in the Super Rugby final. Also very good food and great beers on tap. A bit pricey as everything in Arrowtown is. Worth a visit.
