Two of us visited the pub for an evening meal on a Saturday night. We had a choice of several chef specials as well as the main menu. We shared a tofu starter to see what a chef could do to something which seems to repel flavor when I try to use it. Leave it to the professionals as it... More

The Moutere Inn, "the oldest pub in the country", is going from strength to strength with its food and beverages. Chef Jasper is turning out Top Quality food, totally fresh and with tasty seasonal ingredients. We ate last Thursday as a pre-cursor for the regular monthly Quiz Nite. Two of us had the FOD which was pan-fried snapper on a... More

I reviewed the Moutere Inn in August but this review is about the Chef and his food which is definitely up there with the best in the Bay. Being a pub, the menu is restricted and covers the same basic meals - say, chicken, fish, beef, pork and a vegetarian option - but what I love is that by using... More

We called into Moutere Inn for a bite to eat on our way to a concert at Ngatimoti. We only intended to have a light snack and a drink bit the menu was appealing so we had 3 courses! We shared the entree & dessert and each had a main and it was good wholesome fare. Full of flavour and... More

A lovely spot to pop in and have a cold drink, the outdoor seating area was lovely and service friendly and not rushed. I had family staying with me and thought I would pop out to NZ's oldest hotel! We weren't disappointed and if it was later in the day we would have stayed for dinner.

This place has a special vibe. It's history and location on the brow of a hill make it sunny and comfortable. A great place to meet up with friends after a Saturday in the garden. Lots of outdoor seating and boutique beers on tap. All wines are local within a 10k radius and good quality Nelson wines.

Popped in here recently for a few drinks with some travelling friends, loved the atmosphere and the community feel. Food was excellent, and surrounding vistas were superb

This place is popular with a wide range of people; birthday party groups, tourists , locals, families and bikers. The range of wines and beers is extraordinary. Nothing ordinary here. The food is good and represents value for money. The staff are as friendly as you'd ever likely to find anywhere. The outside tables are a great place to sit... More

Loved it, amazing beers, had a great mulled wine. A quick chat with a character at the bar, the food smelled great. Crackling fire and a pool table. Wish we could've stayed longer

We love the Moutere Inn and take friends there whenever we can. Last Friday was one occasion - 4 people, 4 different meals, all excellent. Between us we had pan-fried turbot, coq au vin, pressed pork shoulder and a goats cheese soufflé and all of us thought our meals delicious. Great atmosphere, friendly, warm, convivial staff. The craft beers are... More
