Staff helpful but not as attentive as expected even though we weren't there at high traffic time. Food was okay and definitely nice to sit outside on the porch watching the river.

This pub seems to have a identity crisis. Outside is a sign informing one that the place is Paddy Fins Irish Pub. The price paid for hiring backpackers, almost non existent service! Menus scattered on table, another confusing option. Four different menus with different food options under different names. I had pulled pork on garlic bread with gravy. Bread seemed... More

Food was good but we waited over 40 minutes for our lunch with few people in the restaurant. I received my sandwich 20 minutes before five other meals were served.

Service was not good, food below average, used to be good a few years back but has slipped for sure. Won't be in a hurry to return.

Best value pizzas in Arrowtown, ranging from $15 to $20, very well topped and big enough to feed 2. Cozy environment is an extra point.

Disappointing food and service. Had to send my steak back twice and waited far to long for our meals at a quiet lunch service. DO NOT RECOMMEND!

Slow service and kitchen struggled with medium rare steak. Some meals were good. Prices ok but for the cost we expected a medium rare steak to be cooked appropriately.

Went in for lunch, barely anyone else there and waiting over an hour for the 8 meals we ordered. Food was very AVERAGE, and OVERPRICED! Steak ordered medium rare came out well done, sent it back and it came out blue!!! Service was very disappointing also. Wouldn't recommend a visit.
