Staying close by as an early flight in the morning, decided to have a local meal. Went in for a few drinks prior to eating and staff were very pleasant and chatty. After looking at previous reviews, I had the lamb shank which was very good. My wife had the stir fry pork, which consisted of a large amount of... More

We were staying across the road so decided to walk over for breakfast. The service was great although my poached eggs were quite under cooked with runny whites. The bacon was nice as was the bread.

We booked a table at this restaurant, because it was just down the road. We were told there was a wait of 45 minutes, and we accepted that. When we arrived, we were told that because some patrons had arrived late, we would have to wait another 30-40 minutes. I was ravenous by this time and not happy with the... More

We had dined here about three years ago and were only moderatly impressed. However, on this trip it was close to where we were staying so thought we might give it a try. A firm booking was made for 7.45 pm - we did arrive a few minutes early, but were basically told that as a party of 12 had... More

Ate here with my two girls. Had the lamb shanks which were very tasty. My kids were able to find something they both liked and also enjoyed their meals. Service was excellent.

We had a couple of very tasty NZ beers and a pretty good meal. The young woman running bar and front of house for the restaurant was extremely efficient and thoughtful

I had a very enjoyable dinner, Chef Ian brought out my comfort food dinner and opened up a conversation, he is a warm and engaging man and I could see other diners also enjoying this engagement from Chef Ian. It's nicely furnished and as a solo traveller it felt very comfortable being there and there was a good buzz to... More

Cozy restaurant, good food for the value, good service. Near the airport and the hotel. Good choice in the menu. Fish and chip good (3/5), pasta and tomato sauce (home sauce - 4/5), desert (leman pie - 2/5).

We wanted to enjoy lamb a final night before we flew home. After a full day we just didn't want to drive to a restaurant. We saw a handwritten sign indicating dinner 530pm to 9pm. A motel restaurant - could it actually deliver a decent meal? The answer is yes! Lamb shank was one of the best we ever had.... More

On our first night we decided to stay and eat in our lodge restaurant. Food was beautiful! I had the salmon which just melted in your mouth while my sons had the fish and chips which both agreed were delicious. Service was excellent and $$ were well spent
