“Service at its best”
Reviewed 20 February 2014

In Christchurch for just one night and we were lucky enough to be located to Bailies. We arrived in the early afternoon and walked to the small shopping centre where we found Bailies. My wife wanted a decent coffee and I could do with a cold drink and Bailies offered both. My favourite drink is Guinness so it was great they had it on tap. My wife's coffee was great so we decided to book for dinner. The food and service was as good as you'd get in a 5-star Hotel. Very happy to recommend this place for a relaxing drink, coffee or meal.

“Small portions at lunch time”
Reviewed 12 February 2014

Ordered 2 meals here, both were OK but found there was not much food on the plate, and left feeling hungry.

May try an evening meal in the future to see if its much better.

“Great food at reasonable prices”
Reviewed 21 January 2014

Just ate dinner here with my wife. They have a great selection of food at reasonable prices. I had a crispy skin salmon with potato and some salad and my wife had lamb skewers with salad. Both were great. Speights beer and cider on tap. Nice room. Music was not too loud. Great service.
