As Renaissance is one of my favourite breweries we made a point of visiting this restaurant. Although it serves mainly fairly basic food such as fish and chips, burgers and pizza, I was keen to try a few beers. Alas, eventhough it is advertised in the restaurant, on the website and on Tripadvisor, none, no not even a single bottle,... More

We arrived to an empty restaurant at 8pm on a Saturday night. We were persuaded to eat outside, which was refreshingly cool but pleasant. We each chose a roast meal of chicken and pork, but there was no pork left, so we had a beef and a chicken meal. Sadly these were presented in a bowl rather than a flat... More

We stopped in for lunch on Saturday ( 3 adults and 2 children ) and as usual we were warmly greeted and we felt welcome. Our orders were taken without feeling rushed and our drinks and meals arrived quickly and correct. Great serves. Plenty of parking out the back and toys for the kids to play with.

Robbies is a brand know across New Zealand but unfortunately Robbies Hanmer Springs is a let down, it is really tired inside and out it's like stepping back in time. We walked in at 9.00pm for night cap to find the place completely empty, the paintwork was peeling, lights weren't working and the courtyard hadn't seen any tlc for years.... More
