Inside the restaurant it is very homely, with an open fire, wooden floors and candle-lit tables.

Absolutely fantastic food!, only gripe would be the staff, they weren't unfriendly but they could have paid a little more attention to their customers. Late table check, heavy handed with the water jugs and when we paid there was no interest whether we enjoyed the meal or not, just assumed we were on holiday here in Hanmer, the reality is actually live here.

No. 31 was recommended by our hotel as we were looking for somewhere close by for our last romantic dinner before we flew back to Australia! We shared the pork belly starter and then enjoyed a perfectly cooked steak! Great wine list, attentive service, gorgeous atmosphere with an open fire! We wished we had left room for dessert as it looked amazing!

Delicious. I had the perk belly entree and lamb main. Both portions very generous and very nice. Husband at the goats cheese tart and pork fillet and he was extremely impressed. Pork meal smaller but outstanding. The chocolate desert and coffee did not disappoint either and we were very impressed after a lovely evening. Pretty good wine list also.
