Stopped here for a quick lunch with the girlfriend on a quiet Saturday. Quick service, nice food and felt like a real bar/restaurant. It didn't really have anything unique about it though, you get exactly what you expect.

The atmosphere was good the service a bit slow. I had pork belly which was excellent. My husband chose the sirloin steak at $32 compared to the $15 steak deal the meal was no better than the cheaper option. My son had the fish and chips the fish was very greasy and very tasteless.

Had a meal here on my own while travelling for work. Good food and service, I would say great value for money as it was a slight step up from your standard pub grub. Great steak!

Found this place by accident. Dined there two nights in a row. Very interesting decor, friendly helpful staff and a good range of bar meals, light meals and mains at prices to suit most budgets. Husband had oxtail soup and then fish and chips the first night and I had garlic bread with the roast vegetable salad. All delicious and filling. Second night we only had one course each as we had over eaten previously. He had the hot pot and I had the salad again even though not a vegetarian it was just so delicious. Husband felt the same about his meals. Each visit we were offered dessert and coffee but too full to even look at the menu. If in that part of Christchurch again would definitely want to eat in this place.
