Loved this place. Food really good, atmosphere was thriving and the service good. The layout and structure of the place made it very cool too.

The food was great! Had the pork ribs and my husband the steak both were wonderful! So good we tried another 2 locations in NZ.

If you want a really good meal, there is probably better places in Dunedin, but the atmosphere and beer is great! Go for something other than the burger. Large dining area so suitable with children

Stopped here for a drink or two. Watched the kitchen staff bring out plate after plate of heaped servings. In the end we shared a malthouse platter, it had meats, salmon, dips, cheeses, olives, pickles etc All served with a whole loaf of bread! The bread had been layered between rye and white, beautiful. Couldn't do it any justice, but... More

Craving a steak so popped in here for dinner. The meals where generous, and some offer a small and large size. The bangers and mash large had 4, yep 4 sausages. Needless to say, it was to much to finish. My steak was accompanied with a mound of seasonal vegetables. Again, to much to finish. The staff where happy, the... More

Combined the brewery tour and lunch package for a total of $118. Well worth the money. Lovely staff and huge, huge meals. No need to eat for the rest of the day. Best way to soak up the samples from the brewery tour.

Between us we had ribs, chicken, chocolate pudding, one of each of the ales and probably too much wine!! Ribs weren't amazing but all other food pretty good, especially the pudding! Staff also very good despite it being incredibly busy. When we came to pay the bill we were presently surprised as we'd expected it to be quite a bit... More
