Great experience, the brew house pub is on the Main Street of this very pleasant and almost quaint town. The food and service are very good and there's a great selection of bear for those wishing to indulge. The working brewery can be seen easily...More

This rating was for the beer, not the food. The beer was really really nice. Which is excellent as this is a brewery. Particularly the Pale Ale. The food. One of us order the scotch filet, which was terrible. It was a low grade cut...More

Thanks for visiting. Glad you enjoyed the beers & the parma. We make the parma from a whole Kiev cut free range chicken breast. The scotch steak cut has a natural area of fat in its middle. It adds a lot of flavour to the...More

Great Parmesan crusted zucchini chips - and then good fish and chips. Chips crunchy on the outside and soft on the inside - like they should be. Should’ve paired it with a local brew but had lovely. NZ Sav Blanc instead.

Popped in on a weekend afternoon for some cold beers and food. Unfortunately at 3pm, the kitchen had already closed, but the bar staff offered the option of hot chips and/or a charcuterie board. We ordered both, and both were just perfect for what we...More

Mice surprise to find home made authentic ales hand pumped and not through CO2 in Australia. It reminded me the years in York... great food and very affordable

We highly recommend starting with an 8x90ml paddle of beers, with the double IPA, the porter and Australian IPA the highlights...and then punctuate it with a crab burger, equals YUMMY TOP NIGHT!

I visited recently with family for a Sunday lunch, all food and drinks were fine, the only issue was time. Time ordering at the bar and waiting for food was ridiculous. I was well aware there was two concerts in there area the previous evening...More

We loved the atmosphere here, and tried a local beer which was really rather good! The food was fine, but underwhelming. Next time I would grab a drink here, then find somewhere else to eat.

I collected some beers for a friend. Bar staff are very friendly but the food standard wasnt up to expectations. Big expensive and i think a little too try hard
