We stopped here for dinner on our way from chch to hanmer on a Friday night. It had great service and tasty food. Not large servings but good quality. I think it's only opening on weekend evenings parts of the year. Highly recommended.

Stopped for lunch on a Sunday. The lunch menu I thought could be much better. Fish & Chips was very average and the fish was pan fried as one of their specials and pretty uninspiring. I was expecting better things from the Norwester Burger -...More
