Over the last few days we stopped their twice after activities for a few beers and their delicious pizzas prepared in their own pizza oven. They only serve Speight's in large bottles which suited us perfectly. The service was friendly and fast. Both indoor and outdoor seating available.

Gibbston Tavern was a great find. Having visited the nearby Peregrine Wines and on our way to Amisfield for lunch a visit to the tavern had been highly recommended. Food was not on our agenda but a cold drink on a warm day was. Walking into Gibbston Tavern was like taking a step back in time; we half expected New... More

Simply a great bar with simple great food. You could stay for a while and be very happy. It's a great alternative to some of the winery restaurants.

Arrived at the Tavern on a hot summers afternoon to see people laughing and lounging around in the sun on the outside lawns. We ended up being greeted by the lovely Peruvian bar tender who took our order and gave us heaps of amazing local recommendations of the area, as she has a local partner living in the region who...
