7 of us visited for dinner, it was the waiters first night (Jayden) he gave friendly service & we went out of our way to make him feel relaxed. He took our orders & the meals didn't take long to arrive. Our entrees arrived at the very same time as all our mains which isn't ideal & you felt you... More

Hi Sorry your visit wasn't as good as expected. As you said, it was our new staff member's first day so it's possible he didn't get it right this time. I've passed your comments on the meals to the chef. He makes almost everything from scratch so will have a look back at the roster to the week you were... More

Grab a pint and rub elbows with locals and travelers alike. Great atmosphere, nice outside patio to soak up the sun, and very friendly staff. Highly recommend the short drive out of Mapua.

We biked out here and stopped in for drinks and a snack. They had a good selection of craft beers and a decent wine by the glass list. We enjoyed the fun and funky atmosphere at Moutere Inn.

Glad we did as they were excellent .We had the pork shoulder and the steak which came with the most delicious beans .They also have a good range of beers and all wines are locally sourced. After several wet and windy days the... More

From the moment we got there, it went downhill. We were among 10 guests who arrived 15minutes before opening and rather than come out and talk to us, they left us milling around outside, watching the staff inside getting ready. Another group of 5 just left. The owners didn't smile and appeared unhappy. The food wasn't good and a massive... More

Hello Mike I'm sorry you were disappointed with your visit. Our kitchen wouldn't have been ready to serve prior to midday and we're unable to open earlier for drinks due to our licence. However, staff should have said hello at least and advised you of this. I can only assume that they were concentrating on getting everything ready on what... More

We had the pub special of 2 steaks and a bottle of kahurangi save blanc. The steaks chips and green beans were delicious and cooked exactly right. This is a lovely pub with great atmosphere and location.

We frequently have 'Sunday lunches' at the Moutere Inn. All have been excellent. great food - most of it appearing to be sourced locally - and many boutique beers. A warm 'community' atmosphere that is becoming much more difficult to experience in NZ now.

Two of us visited the pub for an evening meal on a Saturday night. We had a choice of several chef specials as well as the main menu. We shared a tofu starter to see what a chef could do to something which seems to repel flavor when I try to use it. Leave it to the professionals as it... More
