Back in 2013, the WanderingWabbits spent a night in Kurow...and that's a tale best saved for another time. LOL
However we had a great steak meal at the local Kurow Hotel: so great that we've reminisced about it ever since! April 2018, we deliberately detoured to Kurow...just to see if the steak was REALLY that good.
And it WAS! BLOODY good!
Kurow Hotel (the yellow+blue one on the main drag) is your standard no-frills casual kiwi country pub - what y'see is what y'get. And y'get a BIG perfectly-cooked tender juicy ribeye (with mushroom sauce or garlic butter) and plenty of sides, for just $28.
Restaurant quality at pub prices: you can't beat THAT!
