“Reasonable rural bar restaurant”
Reviewed 28 March 2014

We had early evening meal here on a Saturday night . The bar itself was reasonably lively and the part with tables for eating was clean and bright if perhaps a bit dated. Waitress was fine , menu reasonable amount of choice, and meals arrived in reasonable time. The wine we chose was also ok. Glenorchy is a small place and we reviewed all the other eating options (2 others I think) this looked the best and I think we made the right choice.

“Decent cafe and bar food”
Reviewed 19 February 2014

While staying here for 3 days - we ate in the cafe and bar several times.

Bar: the menu is fairly standard / traditional - though the food is quite good.. we were happy with the various meals we had, and service was reasonably prompt. The menu could arguably be updated / broadened a bit .. but what we had was good.

Cafe: We had several paninis, pies, cakes and sandwiches, coffees and ice cream... and thought the food was pretty good - I liked the apple pie and bacon/egg pie in particular.

I think the place is under new ( ish) management who seem to be making an effort to refurb the place ( new hotel rooms ) - and from what I hear .. will be updating the bar / cafe area in the future.

we would come back again.

We're glad you enjoyed your visit with us. We try to have a menu that appeals as broadly as we can...between cabinet food and a good menu. Glad to you had a chance to try out so many things during your visit. We hope you'll come back and stay with us again.

“Ok, but late ”
Reviewed 16 February 2014 via mobile

Took a late afternoon drive to Glenorchy from Queenstown and stopped at the lodge for supper and a beer. It must have been the first day on the job for our server, and he had also had challenges with the language. The first food delivered to our table was all wrong and had to be re-made. So naturally it took twice as long to eat as expected. Fortunately we weren't pressed for time!

Thanks for your patience, Allen! It does happen, from time to time, when someone's new on the job that they're still learning as they go. (We were all probably like that, too, once upon a time...). Really appreciate your patience and hopefully the next time you come back up for a visit it'll be smoother.
