Went here for dinner. New refurbishment looks good. Nice fire place but it wasn't on. It was cold.
On menu food looks good, but did not deliver on the plate. I think they should stick to bistro meals, steak and chips style, as the meals other patrons got looked good. The level of fine dining they were offering they did not deliver on.

Dear NZtripped,
Thanks for taking the time to review our restaurant, it is always helpful to recieve feedback so we can look at any issues and learn from them, I have showed the team your comments and they have acknowledged your comments as we are just in the process of changing our menu.
Sorry about the fire as we have had some issues with the gas however we do have a good alround heating system so not sure why the restaurant was cold.
I do hope you try us again as I have mentioned we are always learning and changing according to our customers needs.

Kind Regards

Proud to return again, newly renovated which is fantastic. Great service by everyone whom I think we all had serve us. Food was incredibly tasty and presented perfectly. We were treated like kings for a night. Water was the only disappointment. Give them 9/10 and now have to show consistency. Competition has arrived now in Gore this isn't a privately owned business and will spread my palate around. Business was busy thanks to Entertainment book which has people now coming through the door again. Recommend for sure.

A group of us went to the Heartland Hotel Croydon the other day and had High Tea. What a wonderful experience we had, to sit by the roaring fire and have a drink or two...then to sit in a relaxing comfortable booth in their newly refurbished restaurant and to have this 3 tier platter come out with all these sweet and savoury delights...The service was top notch by the wonderful staff member Tracey...Can't wait for the next visit....hmmm brunch this weekend perhaps
