These dishes were great for sharing as a couple and the creme brulee with mango sorbet we had to follow was excellent.

The service we experienced was good, the waitresses were very friendly and professional. We didn't book, however it was not overly busy on a Wednesday night. The atmosphere within this restaurant/pub is very good, suitable for a beer with mates or a family dinner. We got the Pork Belly and the Duck, which were fairly good meals. The meat was... More

We had dinner in this restaurant recently, and not only did we have a delicious meal, we also learned a bit about the history of bicycling in New Zealand! Bicycles adorn the walls with some written information included......as for the food, it was great! We had fish and chips served on a wooden plank; we thought the portions were large... More

Pedal Pushers has awesome decor all in a bicycle theme. The food is yum but the servings are quite small. Reasonably priced and friendly staff.

The night of our dining experience did not start well, no reservation (booked online), very busy but luckily a table outside came available. It was the night of a concert so very busy and noisy. Too few waitress staff for the amount of people in the restaurant but did get served and the food was not too far behind. Food... More

Pedal Pusher provides an amazing selection of food and a good price. The service we had here recently was excellent, from the person we made the booking with to all the staff we interacted with. It was an extremely busy night we visited but this had no effect on the excellent service and attention we received. Would highly recommend for... More
