You get good sized meals for what you pay for. Used to be my favourite place in town. Chicken salad is best I had so far.

Nice and warm and lots of comfort food. Never gone hungry leaving here. It's easy food for a good price. Wait... More

I'd been here before and thought it was good enough to go back but was an absolute let down. New chef, I don't know but the consistency wasn't there. Really it's just a pub feed so a bit on the expensive side. Won't go back, once bitten...........

We decided on the spur of the moment to head out for dinner. We know that we will always have a great meal at the Mornington Tavern and we weren't disappointed. Dinner was delicious and the service as usual was excellent. Always a great place to dine.

This well established venue has been serving locals and visitors for as many years as I can remember. The food just keeps getting better and the menu is wide and varied. Great service from staff too.

We celebrate our anniversary with dinner out that includes the kids. Nice to have a restaurant that is kid friendly and still with great food. Always busy and this evening was no exception but food arrived quickly and was delicious.

My father and I came for dinner last week. As we wanted somewhere friendly with not a lot of noise- this was a great spot. Big open windows for views over Dunedin and such a large menu it was hard to decide. As I hadn't had a roast in goodness knows how long my father and I both chose Roast... More
