We stopped in for dinner after all the wineries closed for the afternoon but did not want to wait until we were back in Wanaka for a meal. The menu looked promising and the hostess was very inviting. The recommendations from the extensive wine list of mostly local wines from the best producers were spot on to the description of... More

Wow! This hotel is amazing. There are 3 different areas to eat & as we had 4 children we chose the beer garden by the cubby house. The food was incredible, lots of share plates including tacos which were divine! The blue cod fish n chips was outstanding, huge wine list as well. Cannot fault this place , it's perfect... More

I had eaten at the Bannockburn Pub many times before and was not that 'excited' about visiting again for dinner...only to discover the new owners had revamped the menu into more of a tapas style dining experience. Good, honest 'local' hospitality/dining... the staff were fun to banter with and the food was sensational.

We recently had several visits to Bannockburn, we enjoy eating at the wineries but decided to visit the pub. The menu is not your standard disappointing list of options, but has a good variety of options which we were actually surprised to find were well presented and delicious. I liked very much the sardines, which I had on three separate... More

The Bannockburn Hotel & Restaurant is just across the bridge from Cromwell, a growing township in the heart of Central Otago. This is a pub with history - we've seen the Gold Rush of the 1860's, the Chinese settlements have come and gone, the valley has flooded and we're still here serving great food, beer and amazing local wine. Come and lose an afternoon or two in our beer gardens taking in the views or relaxing in front of the fire... well you would wouldn't you?
