“Everything a pub should be”
Reviewed 24 April 2013

We are so fortunate that this is our "local" The service is as good as it gets. My wife and I recently took some friends there for dinner, one of our friends has certain dietary requirements that were not met by the menu but it was no problem for them to make up a special for her. When the food arrived it was great, an enormous rabbit pie, my steak was just perfectly done and a really good portion, the venison was equally good. If you want a place that is as close to the old english pub as you will find in New Zealand with no annoying pokies and the sad people that seem to be addicted by them, then this is the place to go.

“Luggate Hotel”
Reviewed 10 February 2013

A really lovely little pub with superb meals. Great place to visit either on a hot day to quench your thirst out in the garden bar or on a cold day to sit by the warm fire and relax and take in the ambience of the place without the noise from pokies and sportscasts from the tv being rammed down your throats.

“OMG!”
Reviewed 2 November 2012

Having visited this lovely pub in 2006 and regularly ever since, I have found the service to be improved slowly by degrees until I feel this establishment has one of the greatest environments for a visitor in Central Otago for an evening out. Excellent service, quality food, superb entertainment....good stuff. My recent visit in September 2012 surpassed all previous visits.
Go Luggate Pub!

“Sitting in history having a great lunch”
Reviewed 7 October 2012

Drove past this place on the way to Wanaka. Then read about it in the tourist guides. Great value at 20 dollars for a burger or fish and chips. Service was excellent. Atmosphere was typical pub feeling with trout trophies around the main drinking area.
