Great for a casual drink, family meal or more formal dining. Friendly, warm atmosphere. Great outdoor area that is ideal for kids and families, a cosy bar and a restaurant with fabulous views.

We liked this hotel so much, we went back again. This is a small hotel run by lovely people who made us so welcome. Drinks in the small bar before dinner which was so good. Menu smallish but with excellent choices. and the desserts...mmmmmm !!

Country hospitality at its best....and funniest. Where else in NZ do you find Kaitlyn Jenner? Two really great girls (thankfully much more charming than the Kardashians) working with Anna in one of the nicest pubs in the South Island. Great food, good service and lovely people. If you're in Cromwell or nearby, make this a visit, we loved the view,... More

We found this gem after realising all the local vinyards had shut for dinner. Turns out this was way better than what we had planned to do anyway. Owned and run by Anna and her husband who recently took over the business. They know their food and wines well. There is a pub with great relaxed local atmosphere and great... More

We stayed nearby and popped in for a pint and a meal. One of us had the blue cod and chips, which were great, while the other had the pulled pork burger, which was ok, the flavours were good, but the meat was strangely cold (perhaps it was meant to be). Never-the-less, all around it was a pleasant experience with... More

Thanks very much for taking the time to leave a review, we're really pleased that you had a nice time with us. I'm so sorry to hear that the pork in your burger was cold, it certainly wasn't supposed to be. I'm also sorry that we didn't find out about it while you were here as we would have been... More

Nice little pub. Went there on a cold, wet night and it was cosy and warm. The food was really good. I had the scotch fillet and it was tender and cooked perfectly. The cut was huge too and it wasn't expensive. Service was excellent, with a nice country feel and it was goid to be able to chat with... More

Description
The Bannockburn Hotel & Restaurant is just across the bridge from Cromwell, a growing township in the heart of Central Otago. This is a pub with history - we've seen the Gold Rush of the 1860's, the Chinese settlements have come and gone, the valley has flooded and we're still here serving great food, beer and amazing local wine. Come and lose an afternoon or two in our beer gardens taking in the views or relaxing in front of the fire... well you would wouldn't you?
