Stopped off for a quick handle before heading on our way. Good selection of beers and nice staff. They give you free wifi with every purchase too, which is nice. This pub seemed to be filled with more locals than tourists; as they say 'go where the locals go'. There is quite a large menu for lunch/dinner and all reasonably... More

We visited early in the week for a leisurely drink and dinner. We were not disappointed,staff were friendly and very welcoming. Service was excellent and meals arrived promptly. We enjoyed our meals and it was very good value. The servings were over generous and you certainly will not leave hungry. Most enjoyable evening and we will definitely be back

Just what we needed, a pub away from the scene. No nonsense straight up drinks. Basic bar food if needed and friendly locals. Plenty of TVs if you want to watch something.

We ate here several times and all the food we had was delicious, reasonably priced and big portions. Staff were great and let you know about wait times as some nights it was incredibly busy. The bars are lovely and warm and there is a good selection of wines.

Absolutely delicious! Unlimited burgers for $15 on Mondays (as long as you can finish all the fries on the last plate -- this was my eventual downfall). Wait staff were friendly and I got my next round in a hurry, before the heavy-breathing apathy set in. Apparently most big eaters only get through two rounds of thick mince patties laden... More

Very open and cold saloon type bar. Usually love this type of bar but this place was Not the most inviting. Staff were ok, not particularly over or under friendly. Good drinks promotions apparently

The best burgers we have had in years. So, so good - wish we could have eaten the whole thing as the portion was huge. Service is speedy. This is a locals hangout vs touristy. For good food, local beer and time with a local Kiwi: eat here!!!

I think this is a little gem that the locals won't tell you about - they want to keep it to themselves. After being disappointed by some other Wanaka restaurants who were not interested in taking a booking for 15 people we were so impressed with Bullock Bar and Grill! They had taken the time to work out a strategy... More
