Service 5/5
Food Quality 4/5
Meal Size 5/5
Vine selection 4/5
Price - 4/5 (bit pricey for a pub meal)

They are not cheap for a pub, but I can tick the box for everything else. Food was warm, cooked properly, good quality ingredients and awesome service.

Surprised to see this restaurant is currently No. 1 in Franz Josef. We had the mains of Nachos and Chicken Parmigiana with a side order of onion rings. All the dishes were tasty and the portions were generous but the food was lukewarm. We were served by at least four different people and asked several times if all was OK.
All was OK but nothing special.

We were cautiously optimistic heading here for lunch, and we were pleasantly surprised to find their soup of the day, vegetable soup, to be excellent. It was a puree which we didn't expect; it was a delicious spin on the classic vegetable soup. Next, we enjoyed the vegetarian pasta we found on the menu. It has just the right amount of spinach & kalamata olives, pitted of course. Sure, the prices were seemingly high, $12.50 for soup & $24 for meatless pasta, but isn't everything on an island seemingly pricey?

Not as good as we remembered them to be, from 8 years ago. We had breakfast here during our stay and it was nothing memorable.

Eggs came very oily, break was overtly buttered and the bacon was very oily as well.

Nothing memorable after some of our other great meals in the South Island.
