Wow love this place. Stumbled upon during an emergency trip to Christchurch. Fabulous food with lots on offer. Had yummy chicken wrapped in bacon. Indoor & outdoor seating, bar & restaurant. So much on offer. Band Saturday night too. Did takeaway burgers for me too. Staff were lovely & it had a great atmosphere. A must visit.

Pegasus is a nice pub with a good menu and selection of drinks, including NZ wines and several craft beers on tap. What blew me away though, is the fish & chips. Several different fresh fish varieties were available and prepared as you like; choices include traditional batter, breaded or pan-seared. We went back on another night because it was... More

This is the first time myself and my family have visited this bar/restaurant, however it won't be the last. The staff were extremely friendly and super accommodating with the children. We waited a little while for the food, it was worth every minute. Lamb roast with Yorkshire pudding and confit of pork with crackling, it was fresh, tasty and plenty... More

It has been a while since I have visited the Pegasus Arms and the pub has gone through a good quality refurbishment in recent years. On the day we visited the menu was extensive with a great selection of meals including Fish n Chips, Steaks, Burgers, Chicken, Pork and Venison. The portion sizes were very good and all the meals...

Went to dinner with friends on a Friday night. First night in Christchurch. This place has a great atmosphere and seemed to be the spot for Friday afternoon drinks. Our food was lovely, couldn't complain about the food at all. There was live music later in the evening and the singer was fantastic. The only spoiler to what was a... More

We had a late dinner one burger and one fish and chips. Taste was excellent and the beer was just great after all the wine you get in new zealand :-) The decoration is old style britisch and at least the corner where we were sitting gave us the feeling to sit in an old British grandma's living room.
