Perched above Felton Road, this recently revamped pub offers good food at fair prices and an exceptional wine list. There are over 100 wines by the bottle, and 40 by the glass (many kept under coravin), all well-priced. Anna and Andrew offer a warm welcome, friendly service and creative cooking. All in all, a place to recommend with enthusiasm.

Went for dinner today and the service was so friendly and warm, from start to finish. Had a selection of the small plates for dinner, so impressed by the quality of the food! Lovely wine as well. Special mention goes to the fish tacos - incredible! Will definitely recommend, what a great find.

We stopped in for dinner after all the wineries closed for the afternoon but did not want to wait until we were back in Wanaka for a meal. The menu looked promising and the hostess was very inviting. The recommendations from the extensive wine list of mostly local wines from the best producers were spot on to the description of... More

Wow! This hotel is amazing. There are 3 different areas to eat & as we had 4 children we chose the beer garden by the cubby house. The food was incredible, lots of share plates including tacos which were divine! The blue cod fish n chips was outstanding, huge wine list as well. Cannot fault this place , it's perfect... More

I had eaten at the Bannockburn Pub many times before and was not that 'excited' about visiting again for dinner...only to discover the new owners had revamped the menu into more of a tapas style dining experience. Good, honest 'local' hospitality/dining... the staff were fun to banter with and the food was sensational.

Called for a coffee as the cafe was closed up the street and though they didn't have a commercial coffee machine we had a fab time here for three reasons A) the view from the grass terrace outside was stunning B) best of all was the laid back, super friendly manager who made our day- we ordered food it came...

Description
The Bannockburn Hotel & Restaurant is just across the bridge from Cromwell, a growing township in the heart of Central Otago. This is a pub with history - we've seen the Gold Rush of the 1860's, the Chinese settlements have come and gone, the valley has flooded and we're still here serving great food, beer and amazing local wine. Come and lose an afternoon or two in our beer gardens taking in the views or relaxing in front of the fire... well you would wouldn't you?
