We had a fantastic meal in the cozy Blacks Hotel after our first day on the Otago Rail Trail. The food was delicious and served in a timely manner. Just what we needed after a day in the sun on the bikes. The restaurant itself was tastefully decorated and had a definitive style. The service was awesome and delivered with...

What a welcome surprise Blacks Hotel was. We were a group of 2 families (x9 in total) on day 2 of the Otago Rail Trail. We were keen for a Southern pub experience and received all of that and more. While we didn't stay at the hotel the owner Sandy offers a complimentary pick up service. We were staying on...

Our tour group stopped here for lunch. I am not sure if the public can walk in for a meal, or if special arrangements were made just for our group. Those who stay at the hotel can eat here. Prior to eating, the owner gave us a quick tour of his rooms, each decorated differently. Lunch was a buffet with...

Went here for lunch on Easter Sunday and the hospitality was top class. The burgers were loaded and great value. The blue cod was also great according to others at our table. The owners make you feel so welcome the minute you walk in the door. Great asset to the area and will definitely be back

Loads of character in this 1937 deco styled hotel, the rooms are all different and ours contained a queen sized bed, bathroom and tea and coffee making facilities. The Restaurant / Bar area is a step back in time. The staff were friendly and helpful. We had an enjoyable dinner here as well.

Our overnight stopover on the ORT. Friendly proprietor, other staff more the southern man style. The bar and restaurant area were well presented but the room was pretty basic. Quite small and with a 3/4 high partition separating the ensuite which was accessed by a noisy bi-fold door. Unfortunately our room was adjacent the garden bar and there was absolutely...

Staff are friendly - and so were the two resident dogs that had the run of the bar room and dining room. The bar room was beautifully decorated with lovely nooks to sit and a couple of lovely fires. Dinner was great - steaks and fish were perfectly cooked. The bedrooms were all individually theme decorated and fun. However they...

We were in Ophir for a wedding and many pre and post gatherings were held at the pub. Owners and staff are incredibly friendly and welcoming. Wines were tasty. We arrived too late for breaky one morning and the lovely lady serving offered to cook us up bacon and eggs anyway which was great and so appreciated. Fish and chips...

A pleasant and traditional country pub that's kind of a straightforward antidote to the po-faced seriousness of many of the cafés that do a less-good job of making their patrons happy with good food, a cold drink and an a relaxing place to be. A well presented lunch, a small beer and a sunny day in a sheltered, quiet courtyard...
