Reviewed 6 April 2018

Regular until now we always stopped at RHmatamata for lunch and a cuppa.
At our stop for lunch... Looked at board....ordered the eggs and english muffin.....to be told sorry run out of muffin..
Partner ordered poached eggs and bacon......tea and coffee for us.
When the cook came in with the plate, smile as extra, the plate landed on the table and nearly cross over the other side of the table.
No enjoy your meal
No would you like any sauce with it........
A little bit down from what we knew from RH matamata.

We were looking for somewhere to have breakfast before hitting the road out of Matamata, and Robert Harris seemed popular with the locals so we gave it a go.

The portions were fantastic. The coffee was delicious. And the prices were fair. Very happy.

This is the cafe that closed to renovate and when it reopened had a servery and a big coffee machine. Everything else looked the same to me. The only big change seems to be that the staff, mostly the ladies, are surly. You are pushed through at breakneck speed, made to feel bad that you have ordered food, as that takes the staff away from more important things (like making coffees for locals) our food was literally dumped on our table by a girl who looked like she smiled once a year. Ok i get it, your busy, but as the title says, theres more to life than coffee.

Rubbish! Messed up the coffee order, coffee was horrible, then when eating my main course I discovered two large flakes of metal obviously off the frying pan that the mushrooms were cooked in. Told two of the staff but they couldn’t have cared less. Not even an apology - Robert Harris Matamata you are a joke! Never going back to ANY Robert Harris ever again an have told 8 people who won’t visit again either- they will obviously tell more -

Open, friendly atmosphere. Good range of quick eats, close to the i-site visitor centre which is dressed up as part of Hobbiton. Having said that, don't take the Hobbiton tour from here - drive to the site itself so that you can visit the Shire's Rest.
