We were a group of 8 bike riders. We loved our arvo beverages and dinner at this pub, owned by a gorgeous ,hardworking couple.

Like most establishments in the World they have been hit by Covid and difficulty finding staff. Go and support them.

    Had dinner here on our first night riding the Otago Rail Trail. Typical small town pub with a mix of locals and visitors.
    The hosts have been there for only four months but are making a success of it based on our experience.
    They introduced my wife to a red wine that has now become her favourite - from Gibbston Valley so keeping it local.
    Food was very tasty and plentiful the latter being very helpful given the calories we were burning on the bike.
    Well worth a stop.

    Visited the hotel for afternoon drinks and dinner while riding the ORT. The service and food was exceptional. Especially the fish and chips and brownies. I wish the new owners all the luck in their new business. Thanks for making our adventure an awesome experience.

    Great service from Chantelle. Delicious food. The picky bits option for the little ones was a hit. New owners were lovely and we wish them all the best for the new venture. Definitely would come again

    A beautiful, quaint old hotel, decorated in a lovely antique style. There was so much to look at! The rooms were very clean and comfortable, staff were friendly and helpful. This was our second stay here, and I am certain it won’t be our last.

    Came here for a night and dinner as a stop on the ORT. Twin room was small, but functional. The electric blankets on the bed were a nice touch. Some rooms had to use shared bathrooms. The meal downstairs was good, with beautiful bbq ribs. It sounded like there were a couple of intoxicated people in the bar, but nothing too dramatic. Breakfast was very basic.

    It very sad to see police machines in a rural pub (or any pub). Very unnecessary.
