Staff were friendly and food was okay, nothing special but it filled a hole and was reasonably priced. Don't recommend the triple chocolate cheesecake, really not to my liking.

Staff were amazing, especially the bar staff, food was great value for money. Bread and Butter pudding and chocolate cheese cake were to die for. Roast Pork for two was delicious.

Just on the next block down from the Ibis hotel this was recommended to us by the tour guide and we were not disappointed, we both decided to go for the chicken roast which when it came was a full chicken shared between us, it came with full veg and potatoes and was more than enough for us, yvette had...

Friendly staff, good food, good location with pleasant seating options, small to large, a quiet corner or a busy bar.

Stopped for lunch last week while on a NZ cruise. Very nice, clean well appointed tavern with very friendly and knowledgeable staff. I had the special of the day, crab and guacamole sandwich. Excellent!

Stopped by for dinner and drinks on a random weeknight. Food was great, service was even better! It wasn't very busy so we asked if we could play cards quietly in the corner, and our waitress was happy to give permission. Thanks for a great night in Wellington!

Great service with a smile. Food was okay looked great when it arrived....but lacked something I'm not sure what. Ribs were pretty good and the steak wing rib was tender just lacked a good jus or gravy. The potato skins and crackling and smoked chicken wings were okay. Tender meat but again not sure what it needed. Nice atmosphere and... More

The service was friendly and engaging, and we with were happy with the choices of beer on offer. After several drinks a female waiter approached us and inquired whether or not we would... More

Ate here late one evening (about 9pm) - our first choice having closed its kitchen by 8.30 - and were not disappointed. We opted for the Finger and Fork Share Platter ($45) which included smoked wings, smoked beef meatballs (a little disappointing), chicken liver pate, zucchini fritters, smoked fish rilettes, prawn and crab cakes, calamari and a plate of dark...

We went to the Featherston for lunch mainly because I saw they had Guiness on tap and I do love a Guiness ! We decided to order some food and were very pleasantly surprised. It was delicious. My husband loved his mince on toast, a daily lunch special and maybe a New Zealand thing?. My potato skins were just that... More
