We bike to, and eat/drink here a few times a year and have liked it a lot. This trip was not so flash. Friends had told us of a bad experience a few days ago, and we had a shocker today. The waitress was lovely but some of the food was not. And the boss was dark about there being... More

We had a lovely celebration here .Good music and friendly staff and good pub type food. The hotel itself is quaint and has a pretty backyard eating or drinking garden which is sheltered from the wind and sunny .Great for young children to play in. A real south island rural pub.

Great location and we stopped in for a quick drink - the staff very super friendly and great service - outside is a great area to sit and if you have kids plenty of room to run around

Stopped in for a light lunch, the staff were outstanding and went out of their way to supply a salmon quiche in which was shown as sold out, service very friendly great southern hospitality, Magic sitting out the front of the pub watching the action pass through the township . Highly recommended

The new owners of this iconic hotel need to take a good look at what was done by the previous owners. The four of us ordered our meals and although nicely cooked the meals were very plain and tiny. Certainly NOT good value for your dollars. Unless the quantity improves for the dollars spent we won't be eating there again

our group of six enjoyed our evening out at the Luggate. The blue cod was very good, the ribeye steak not amazng, but perfectly acceptable. Perhaps a little overpriced. The only negatives, were the delay in food, about 50 mins, the haphazard service, and the very rowdy young locals, whom managed to drop a beer next to our table, soaking... More

Really disappointed at the service today for our lunch with friends. The food that did arrive took an hour and two meals never arrived. I cancelled them after 1.5 hours and they never even said sorry. The young guy behind the bar looked so bored and none of the staff offered a smile in the whole time we were there.... More

Went New Year's Day, horrendous set up. Staff running around arguing with each other. Given the wrong food twice, undercooked food and hour wait. Four other tables having the same issues. Was so bad it was actually fun. Do NOT go.

After a morning's walk, we treated ourselves to lunch at the Luggate Hotel. Inside welcomed by a roaring fire. However it was a glorious day and we sat out in the garden along with many other groups and families. Enjoyed a nice lunch, and my husband said the beer was excellent.
