I had a meal with two colleagues here on a cold winters night and it was just what you expect from heartland NZ - large meals done well and good solid comfort food. I had the pork belly which fell apart, one colleague had the lamb which she couldn't finish (too big) but which also fell off the bone, and my second colleague had the rib eye, which he raved about. My advice, bring an appetite and wash it down with a good Otago ale of Pinot Noir. And the service was really good. The locals eat here (it was packed on a Thursday night). Well recommended.

Was really impressed with the service and the food and top marks for serving the 6 yr old well before the adults as young children are desperately hungry when they see others around them eating, they get bored waiting, and they take longer to eat their food so the adults soon catch up with them. This place was so good we went back for breakfast the next day.

this great old building was such a find, and the food was to die for. I had the Thai beef salad, well cooked beef massive portion and $20 was a good price and a great package, my wife had the veggie stack for $20 and it was a huge portion. Great flavors well cooked and well spiced. Give this place a try all in all expect large portions for the price.

We brought my 16 year old son here for his birthday lunch, and we weren't disappointed! Our meals were great, and my son was even impressed haha. His perpetual demands for bbq sauce were greeted with a very courteous and quick response. Thanks Fat Sallys!

Lovely pub. Great atmosphere. Limited wine selections, but certainly makes up with the food. Had the slow cooked lamb and was not disappointed. Excellent dinner, great Pinot to accompany it. Didn't need to eat till after 2 pm the next day . Two thumbs up
