After a big day dong the queenstown marathon came here for dinner. Fine food, great friendly service and an excellent venue to catch up with friends. I had venison on a potato gratin with beans & broccoli with an amazing sauce. Friends had the Blue Cod & pork belly burger.

We went on a Wenesday night "Irish night" - Irish music played by anyone who wanted to jam. Unfortunately we had a dinner booking, otherwise we would have stayed

My wife and I had lunch here today and loved the food and the number of craft beers available. Staff was very friendly and knowledgeable of the local brewers and their products. Definitely recommend this to anyone that needs to take a break when doing the tourist thing in Arrowtown.
