Crow Tavern and Restaurant
Ranked #25 of 42 Restaurants in Picton
Description: Nestled in the picturesque town of Picton at the top of the South Island, New Zealand, and at the gateway to the beautiful Marlborough Sounds, is the ‘Crow Tavern. A home away from home for the local residents of Picton and tourists as well. Located on the town square it is the only Tavern in town and is surrounded by a residential area. The Crow has a full restaurant, public bar, lounge bar, bottle store, smoking area, gaming room and garden bar. It is a place where business is done, jokes are told and celebrations are held. The ladies feel comfortable in the bar and the staff and patrons are one big family. Customers share their family occasions here and sit outside in the pretty garden bar all summer long. In winter the huge open fire is a big draw card along with the big screen TVs for watching the rugby.Around the tavern are many photos of local rugby teams, fishing excursions and boats in precarious positions previously owned by local patrons.The Tavern was first built in 1855 and has been rebuilt twice since. The Crow is one of the few places in Marlborough with history of the area on the walls. The restaurant has a wall dedicated to ‘The Echo’, one of the oldest ships in the world which is now beached at Shelly beach near the town center.

This is no fancy, hip gastro pub - The Crow is a pub like they used to be. A bit rough and ready but excellent value and worth it for the people-watching alone. We had a meal in the restaurant and were astounded at the good value - we ordered the seafood platter for 2 and were amazed at the feed we got for $40. The meal turned up on 3 separate plates and we were stuffed full by the end - and my husband can eat a lot of seafood! There was a guy singing in the bar area, which was pretty old skool but good value. A real classic Kiwi pub.

Liked the meal but disliked having to wait a long time as there were so many previous orders. The answer is to order long before you want to eat.

Meals are scrumptious and very generous servings. Staff are friendly and very happy to chat to you after your meal. Great atmosphere with nice warm open fires.
