Really cool atmosphere for dinner! Delicious pizza (seriously amazing!) and good selection of drinks. Definitely will visit again on my next trip to Queenstown!

This place is great for having reasonable deals! We stumbled across it during the $10 lunch special and were not disappointed - however, we wish we stumbled across it during its happy hour too, cheap drinks & $4 pizzas! Lovely big venue, lots of places to sit. Food was delish, and great value! Wish I found this place earlier on... More

Same price pizza as Dominoes (if you get the happy hour prices) but 10 times better! If you're hungry, then the small ones probably won't be enough, but a half-metre is plenty! Free pool and they have djs on the weekends. Gets pretty busy especially during $4 drinks happy hour!

Outside of Happy Hour you can get pints for $5.00. At Happy Hour (9-10pm) they are $3.00 (Wine and cocktails are also reduced). Between 7-8.30pm, pizzas are $4.00. The beer was nice, the pizza delicious. There is a lovely fire to take a chill off the air, and the Pub was less busy than some others in the main area... More

Searle Lane offers a great menu and a $15 lunch menu but it was the $4 pizzas that caught our eye. The $4 pizzas are available every day from 7pm to 8:30pm and they were delicious with great ingredients. The restaurant is well presented and cozy, with dining and bar seating and pool available. Pizzas were so good we had... More

Searle Lane is a good place to grab a drink and bite to eat. Meals sizes were generous and they had a reasonable variety on offer. A nice dim setting to enjoy a meal amongst friends and family.

Looking for a reasonably priced lunch a friend recommended Searle Lane and we weren't disappointed. Wonderful menu choice and we were offered the $10 specials menu too which we ended up ordering from. Meals were generous, tasty and well presented and we would go there again in a flash Staff were attentive without being intrusive.

Despite our hostel offering discounts for other places, the cheap and good quality food and drink here at Searle Lane made this bar restaurant almost our home in Queenstown. We stumbled upon it by accident whilst exploring and looking for lunch; it is in a small back street just off one of the main roads, and the waitress quickly found... More

World over it's becoming harder and harder to find a true ski town bar. Searle Lane hasn't given in to catering to the rich and spoilt and stays true to what a ski town establishment should be. Good food, cheap drinks and late night debauchery. I was a bit skeptical of the $4 pizzas but they were awesome and cheap... More
