Description: As warm and welcoming, as a traditional English Carriage House. The white walls and exposed rafters are adorned with riding tack, farm tools and other historic artifacts. While the wooden floors, wagon wheel bar stools and open fireplace add to the warmth.

The staff were good, the food was average, nothing spectacular, but cooked well. The prices were again average, and that just about sums it up "average".

Had a fabulous meal here at the end of a day of solid walking (two glaciers and one lake) - very helpful and attentive staff, good food, nice atmosphere.

The restaurant has a very homey feel, with a working fireplace at that. Servings are huge and taste is excellent. They even have a set meal which includes yummy dessert pudding. Another good choice to eat when in Franz Josef.

Food is really great. We ordered pork roast and beef stew. Both are yummy and hearty. It's the most decent meal we've had since Greymouth and Fox Glacier.

However, the service is really slow. Even asking for water has taken a lot of time.

The Alice May is a quaint little pub with fantastic atmosphere. Its old school as opposed to The Landing down the road which is a lot more modern. The Wi-Fi is a bit slow but the beer is cold and the service is warm and friendly.
