I went a few nights ago for a drink with a couple of friends, the staff were very friendly, and the place had a lovely atmosphere. Unfortunately I didn't get a chance to try the food so we'll definitely be going back to try it.

If in Blenheim try Scotch. It has a selection of fine craft beers and a wine list that has to be seen to be believed. Meals are reasonably priced and the overall menu above average for variety and flavour.
