Came for lunch with my dad and a bunch of friends on a really nice day. Staff were considerate, food was awesome! I will say though that the 2 carbonara dishes that came out were very inconsistent; one was perfect with lots of sauce and one was quite dry with the pasta:sauce ratio being off significantly. Overall though was extremely... More

This was the best pub meal that we have ever had! We got the roast for two that was a fully loaded beef, cooked to perfection, a massive size of vegetables, Yorkshire puddings and condiments to boot.

Sent it back still steak burnt to a crisp no seasoning and was rubbery. The bacon tasted like it was out... More

I went to this restaurant for a Christmas work lunch last week. The restaurant itself was really elegant but comfortable. There was our table of 15 and a table of 5. The rest was empty. We waited a long time for our food and it all came out at different times, so by the time half had finished their lunches... More

Came here for breakfast, place was quite busy with guests from the motel however food was quite average and took quite a while to arrive. I have been pleasantly pleased with other meals from here in the past so I assume it was an off day.

Went with a large group for lunch. I ordered fish and chips wth salad. I'm not a big eater and I left hungry. Small piece of fishy tasting fish, a handful of warm chips, fairly nice salad. The person beside me had the same meal and had heaps more chips! As we had lots of orders, my friend told the... More

Good variety on the menu with a good range being gluten free had a lovely honey chicken dish that I would recommend. Service was efficient and friendly, and the environment was pleasant as we were not crowded in. Over all a good night.

While wandering the city on foot I got caught in Christchurch's unpredictable weather patterns and Bealey's was the rainbow in the rain. Hand dryers in the restrooms to dry off a bit and a well deserved beer! Very grateful. Have eaten here previously and like the easy atmosphere.
