The wine list is... More

Enjoyed the tasty sharing plates of food. Very pleasant friendly service. My favourite was the Chimichurri steak with the pulled lamb asado tortillas close behind. We went in the evening but would probably be nice for lunch when you could see the view!

Such a lovely menu we couldn't decide. Very cheerful and helpful service. An extensive wine list with lots of lovely local wines. Was especially nice to see wines not widely available around the country. We couldn't fault our visit.

Great little pub tastefully refurbished and retaining all the atmosphere and history of the area. Food was first class and the menu offers more than you might expect from such an establishment. A really neat location with sweeping views and large outdoor areas. Anna and the troops made us most welcome, to the point we felt like members of the... More

Perched above Felton Road, this recently revamped pub offers good food at fair prices and an exceptional wine list. There are over 100 wines by the bottle, and 40 by the glass (many kept under coravin), all well-priced. Anna and Andrew offer a warm welcome, friendly service and creative cooking. All in all, a place to recommend with enthusiasm.

Went for dinner today and the service was so friendly and warm, from start to finish. Had a selection of the small plates for dinner, so impressed by the quality of the food! Lovely wine as well. Special mention goes to the fish tacos - incredible! Will definitely recommend, what a great find.

The Bannockburn Hotel & Restaurant is just across the bridge from Cromwell, a growing township in the heart of Central Otago. This is a pub with history - we've seen the Gold Rush of the 1860's, the Chinese settlements have come and gone, the valley has flooded and we're still here serving great food, beer and amazing local wine. Come and lose an afternoon or two in our beer gardens taking in the views or relaxing in front of the fire... well you would wouldn't you?
