Fairweather's is a good, friendly pub/restaurant which wont break the bank! Our BBQ ribs, salmon, chicken and veggie stack were tasty and well presented. The waitress was exceptionally helpful and service good. There is a very good beer and wine selection. A pleasant evening with good pub grub.

We ate here while on holiday in Blenheim for the weekend. My husband had the fish which he enjoyed but thought the meal a bit on the small side for the price. I had the pasta which was pretty average, it was chicken and bacon, I couldnt detect any bacon, the chicen was overcooked and the sauce was very bland.... More

I eat here a lot because I know I will get a good meal at an affordable price with good service every time. From burgers to salads and if your in a hurry, a delicious selection from the chilled cabinet. Been going here for years and enjoyed it every single time

We both had steak with mushroom sauce. It was the blandest tasting meal I have eaten! Added a heap of salt and pepper to the sauce and meat and was not impressed. We had T-Bones and they were both fatty and grisly, wasnt impressed and hungry after

We dined as a large group (12) so we expected service to be a bit slow. However at one point we thought our order had been forgotten! To be fair I think the restaurant was short-staffed and our waiter was excellent and the slow service did not spoil our meal as we were out for the night anyway. When the... More

I was suprised about how busy the Fairweathers was for a Monday. I was concerned about the amount of fly dispensers on the wall and the amount of flies in the place. The service was slow and the average maybe they were not used to having so many people in? A comment from my local Customer saying that he would... More

We ordered at the bar and waited for over 45 minutes for our food to come. Once it came, it was delicious.

This is the third time we've been in the past few months and it was yet another good night out! Good service, lovely meals and very reasonably priced wine made it a great evening out with family. We both had the fillet steak and our sister and brother in law both had the chicken breast. Everyone had a beautiful meal... More
