What a great place to start. Beautiful setting, friendly and informative staff. Pino gris and Pinot noir very good.

Mud House Cafe and Bar is an easy distance from Christchurch (50 Minutes) for a relaxed interesting lunch. The menu had varied dishes which excited our palates and the wines were first class. Service was also excellent and our waiter kept an eye on us...More

We had a very nice lunch with all our family. The setting is very nice with views across the vineyard. The wine was delicious and the food excellent. A very good location for a lunch and the celebration of a special occasion.

This place!! Out in the middle of nowhere. Stunning scenery, amazing food! I had a lovely gamey soup type thing, with mash, lovely! Had a good chill out here I remember. Just took it all in... the mountains! Brilliant.

Great spot for a coffee...or that's how it started. Ended with lunch alongside the roaring fire. Too good. The beer's highly rateable too. What more could we ask for?

Lovely experience, great food and setting. Quite pricey for the meals, but would come back again. Not a place for young children !

I feel I should contradict the previous reviewer who was unhappy with the coffee and thus nearly stopped my visit. But we needed coffee and experienced excellent service and top quality coffee.

We stopped here for a takeaway coffee on our way up north. The coffee was so bad that if we hadn't been driving already we would have taken it back. Coffees also took ages to make.
