Nothing fancy just a normal pub meal, very filling and the staff were lovely. Found it strange we were asked for ID when we weren't in the bar and weren't drinking

Chose to eat here after seeing the prices at most of the other eateries in Hanmer, plus it seemed to be the place visited by the locals which is always a good sign. Had a lovely meal there. The staff were very attentive and our meal arrived quickly and was piping hot. We would have no hesitation in going back.

Having eaten at a number of Speights places as we tour the country we had no hesitation in calling in for lunch. Drinks and the promoted Roast of the Day was ordered for each of us. I asked to be sure there was crackling only to be told "no crackling as we get our meats on Mondays so it's all... More

Very poor quality. Zero care taken by kitchen. Very bad food. Not fresh. Served cold swimming in water. No changing facilities. No wifi.

We decided to eat here as menu looked good and it wasn't overpriced like everywhere else in Hanmer. Food was fantastic. Ribs were to die for, steak cooked perfectly. All meals looked amazing. Enjoyed sampling all my friends dishes. Staff were really friendly. Great local pub feel.

Decided to go to this place as was a bit more reasonably priced for what we wanted. Roast was yummy. Others had ribs and said were amazing. Also the steak went down a treat. Yummy. Also friendly as great service :)

Great meals. Good prices. Large pub meals. Saturday night they clear the tables and have dancing music and dance floor. Price of alcohol is cheaper than others in the area. You can go on a Friday night and met all the friendly locals. Staff are great and friendly. I've been here about ten times for dinner and a night out... More

Note that customers visiting this place have had quite variable experiences. Our experience was good. Received good service from the moment we walked in the door, the food was of good quality and the portions were large. Well priced too we thought.

My wife and I arrived in Hanmar at 4pm, checked in to our hotel and went for a walk around town stopping at the Alpine inn and sat out the back looking over the historical hospital very relaxing sun shining great just sitting there enjoying the sun!
