“Definately Worth a Visit”
Reviewed 9 October 2013

Welcoming, friendly and helpful staff. A fantastic selection of craft beers to choose from - somee of which are their own which are brewed on site. The beer tasting platter is a great way to try a few of them. There is a great selection of German food to choose from - We had the schnitzel and the pork knuckle. It was delicious.

“Great beer and food, reasonable cost”
Reviewed 19 September 2013

Walking distance from Top 10 park. We just went for a beer on advice of local friend and ended up staying evening. Had a pie, which is pretty basic, but taste was superb. Great amosphere and good service.

“A 'Must do'”
Reviewed 3 August 2013

This place was recommended to us and we certainly weren't disappointed. Loved the cider on tap and a great selection of beers. Great atmosphere and a very friendly owner who took the time to explain a bit about the history of the building and meals. This was a rushed visit so we didn't have time to stay long but will certainly go back for a meal next time I am in Blenheim.

“lovely atmosphere”
Reviewed 31 July 2013

Historic building and the owner is only too willing to tell you about it. Food was very nice. Great pizza. Lots of good beer on tap, but I wanted to try the local Pink Elephant beers but they did not have them on tap. The bar manager assured me that they would have a keg on tap the next time I visited. Great.
Lovely warm fire to back up to and in the summer the beer garden looks as if it would be a great place to while away a few hours. Thanks
