We walked past this on the way to town from the Rydges Hotel on a Sunday evening. Plenty of dishes to choose from and the attraction is a roast dinner and dessert for two for $NZ49. We opted to have something different once we sat down, my husband had the sausage, cabbage, mash and gravy and I had the lamb... More

We were on a cruise and the bus pickup and drop off was near. Stopped in for a cold beer "Monteiths golden pint" It was six hours until dinner onboard the ship so we ordered some fries. They were the best we enjoyed while on our cruise. Kate H. was pleasant and chatted with us. Beer was cold.

Staff were friendly and food was okay, nothing special but it filled a hole and was reasonably priced. Don't recommend the triple chocolate cheesecake, really not to my liking.

Staff were amazing, especially the bar staff, food was great value for money. Bread and Butter pudding and chocolate cheese cake were to die for. Roast Pork for two was delicious.

Friendly staff, good food, good location with pleasant seating options, small to large, a quiet corner or a busy bar.

Stopped for lunch last week while on a NZ cruise. Very nice, clean well appointed tavern with very friendly and knowledgeable staff. I had the special of the day, crab and guacamole sandwich. Excellent!

Stopped by for dinner and drinks on a random weeknight. Food was great, service was even better! It wasn't very busy so we asked if we could play cards quietly in the corner, and our waitress was happy to give permission. Thanks for a great night in Wellington!

Great service with a smile. Food was okay looked great when it arrived....but lacked something I'm not sure what. Ribs were pretty good and the steak wing rib was tender just lacked a good jus or gravy. The potato skins and crackling and smoked chicken wings were okay. Tender meat but again not sure what it needed. Nice atmosphere and... More
