The food was excellent ,it did take a little time to arrive but the staff worked really well and kept smiling even though they would have been snowed... More

There were a group of eight of our friends that went to the Gladstone Inn for a meal and drinks. Every one of us had a beautiful meal. I chose the mushroom risotto ..., superb!!! Great place to dine in the Wairarapa!

Lunch for six in the garden. Very friendly waitress service for food AND drinks. Fairly standard pub fare of burgers, steak sandwich, fish'n'chips, etc. but also a couple of interesting dishes such as portobello mushrooms on toast with spinach & parmesan and chicken & halloumi salad with fennel & orange.

Went here not long before Christmas with family. Had a very enjoyable lunch outside on the deck. Food that people in our party had included chicken halloumi salad ($21), Angus steak sandwich ($22, very substantial) and the affogato ($14.50) for dessert was especially good. Local wine at reasonable price (Pinot Gris $36). Relaxing and enjoyable, but take a designated driver!

My brother and I set out to bicycle from Martinborough to the Gladstone Country Inn and back again (around 80kms return) stopping at the Inn for lunch. It was overly ambitious as neither of us had cycled for 40 odd years. The countryside was delightful. We finally made it to the Inn to find it closed for renovations, for that... More

Taken by our friends for a leisurely drive out to a wee small hotel in the "back blocks" - we thought - well this is very tiny - not much of a hotel, from the outside. But once inside what a great hotel, the service was excellent with only 4 waitresses they were run off their feet but managed to... More

Lovely pub with a nice atmosphere and good food but after placing a large order we were extremely annoyed to be charged extra for a serving of tomato sauce. Will they charge for salt and pepper next?

Country bar and restaurant catering to local farmers and those from further afield. Good honest food, prepared with fresh local ingredients. At the heart of the Wairarapa wine trail, we showcase local wines, in particular those from the Gladstone area. Craft beers available. Open fire provides a welcome in winter, and outdoor dining is available in the warmer months in our riverside garden bar.
