“charming”
Reviewed 1 July 2014

the indoor outdoor flow is great.. brilliant on a sunny day, cosy on a cold day.. the selection of food and drink is good, if you have a short lunch time, just enough time for a coffee then

“Warm and inviting”
Reviewed 30 May 2014

I fully recommend the Rutland Hotel resturaunt. From the momemt you walk through the door it is warm and welcoming and the setting magical. Friendly staff and a good sellection of food at a reasonable price. The atmosphere completes the experience. We have eaten here often and enjoy each visit.

“Funky pub”
Reviewed 27 May 2014

Funky little place that will have you staring at the walls, and all the funky stuff hanging... a great, cosy place to stop for a drink on a cold winter's night.

“Great food”
Reviewed 18 April 2014

Have dined here numerous times and would consider it a regular occasion,but some things seem to have slipped since Christmas .The standard of food is excellent but the service needs attention. We will get told on arriving the wait time for food, anywhere up to an hour and a half. Once we turned up and the place was virtually empty so everything came quickly but other times we have to simply go elsewhere. It's a nice place to take friends but it can't be relied on.Seems like big groups are a problem here. I hope they will address this issue. Otherwise spot on place for a tasty meal.

“Great english-style pub”
Reviewed 16 April 2014

The Rutland Arms has a great atmosphere and is designed like an old English pub. It has a great range of beers, including a tasting tray, which you can purchase to sample some of a big range of beers.
If you want a meal the food is excellent and a good menu is available. It is definitely one of the better Wanganui places to eat.
