We had lunch here on Christmas Day as everywhere else was pretty much closed. Understandably we expected service to be slow due to shortage of staff and large volume of diners but it was way too slow when we had to wait for 40 minutes for our food. The food was average but came in huge portions. We had the pea & ham soup, blue cod fillet and turkey with cranberry sauce from its limited Christmas menu. Thumbs up for the mash. It was good (and came huge)!

Had a great late lunch at around 4pm. Great service & the roast pork & gravy sandwich was fantastic! Really tasty & filling. My friend had the calamari - great serve, perfectly cooked! Would be great on a cold day with the fire burning!!!

We have tried this restaurant back on Nov, we were quite disappointed with chilli chicken as the chicken were over cooked(over fried) and the flavour of it got spicy taste only. I expect the chicken texture should be more tender or juicy. But the most disappointed is with the rice which got crunchy taste which believe is uncooked or raw.
Although the chilli chicken and rice are dissatisfied, the pizza we ordered is quite good and we really like it.

Good drinks, but pricey but worth it for taste. Very nice staff, friendly. Can’t buy doubles though (only disappointment) - A+ service

After a long drive from Franz Josef, we settled into the Millbrook Resort and ran into Arrowtown for some food. We took the Mac n' cheese and the seafood chowder back to our apartment. This time we also got the smoked salmon. All of this was great with a nice bottle of wine. The pub is cozy and warm and very friendly. Since we have done this five times, you could say we are "at home".
