Had family dinner for Dad's 95th birthday. We were as usual welcomed by lovely staff. The food is always good and well presented. The service is attentive. Always a good evening.

This joint has been open for a few years now and we have never managed to call in. Travelling back home this evening and decided to make a stop for dinner. Not many people dining on a Sunday evening. Not sure that is good or bad it is a new year so folks might be running low on funds by... More

Hi there Thanks for taking the time to review our restaurant I'm glad your partner enjoyed her Pork, we agree it is enjoyable. The "saucy stuff" on the Lamb is a Jus and with the salad being a generous sized Cannellini Bean salad it is a little difficult to keep it in one place. We do have a lot of... More

Waiter not happy, and waited more than 45 minutes for our meal. It should be a great place but needs staff training.

We stopped for a brunch as we were travelling north to Dunedin. An absolutely fabulous meal which some of us could not finish. Eggs Benedict to die for, and the full farmers breakfast absolutely stuffed a 20 yr old who was in the party(he can normally eat a horse at one sitting). Superb staff and very comfortable surroundings. Well done... More

We had a lovely dinner, the lamb rack was excellent and our waiter cameron was so friendly and professional and even drove us back to our hotel when we were unable to get a cab. A really lovely dining experience in Gore. Highly recommend.

We had a wonderful evening dinning at the Thomas Green. There was 20 of us in the board room and it was beautifully decorated for our Christmas get together. We ordered the set Christmas menu and we were spoilt for choice with the ham, beef and lamb. The meal was beautiful and presentation spot on. As for the desserts we... More

Just had an excellent coffee and cheese scone at TG. Elegant decor and very friendly service. Try it, you won't be disappointed. Best coffee we have had in NZ, so far.
