Nice pub with good size meals. Drinks reasonably priced. We enjoyed the roast beef for lunch on the day we went, did not leave hungry. Not to busy on the day we went but sure it would have a great atmosphere with more people

An 'English' pub with a lively evening feel. On the Sunday night there was a great band playing hard rock and an unbelievably good guitarist. All the usual drinks can be had but for $9 you can buy a jug of Pig & Whistle beer which is just a bit short of two pints - excellent value. The food, while... More

Really enjoyed my visit. There were excellent craft beers available and a good and varied hot food menu, serving quality dishes of old favourites (and some that I'd never have thought of trying!) The men in our group enjoyed the sport screens - sited high to be easily seen but not to intrude on non-sport conversations. A great venue.

Called in not knowing what to expect in food quality but came away having had the roast beef Yorkshire pudding dinner which coming from Yorkshire was surprised to say was good and my wife's meal of calamari was also good So must recommend you try this place for a Meal while you are in Queenstown.

Average pub food, but nice spot with outside seating where you can enjoy a jug of beer for just $9. The sausage is pretty good, but the chicken burger I had was a bit tasteless.

Very good value had the steak egg and chips which was great for $12, popular place because of the deals they do. Good service and will go back.

I ate lunch here with a small group of about 10 friends. We ate at one of their outside tables, although the space was a little bit cramped. I had the bangers and mash and a draft beer (I think it was Monteith Gold). My food and beer were delicious. However some of the others thought their food (they chose... More
