It's promising externally but... Buy a pizza and some non Otago Pinot Noir and read a book. It's like a workers club from 1970. Avoid

We had ribeye steak and schnitzel Steak- asked for "medium rear" received "well done" grisly fatty steak with terrible peppered sauce - which in no way tasted like pepper was an ingredient. Onion ring fatty and rubbery to the point where cutting with a knife would not sevre the bloddy thing Schnitzel- greasy and dry covered with a stodgy gravey... More

Great place again , Yaldhurst branch closest to us.Again food atmosphere service is spot on. A great place to pop into if you are passing and need a feed anytime during the day. Very friendly and welcoming and food variety always changing.

This place is on our way home from work and is tempting to drop in to instead of going home to cook. They have plenty of variety and the pub style food is of good value and size. Staff are friendly and attentive.

We like all Robbies Bar & Restaurants. Good food and nice friendly service. Nothing too much trouble for the staff. Stop by one of these spots when on the road and you won't be disappointed.

Unfortuntely we havent enjoyed our two visits to Robbies, it has a fantastic dining room with lots of space and a casual menu that we would normally enjoy but the quality of food is poor and too expensive

Warm & cosy with great food. Good steak and a handle of local beer went down very well but we really enjoyed talking with the waitress who gave us lots of information about the local area. It's always good asking the locals for information. Highly recommended.

Stayed local and wanted something with no fuss to eat, this is a familey restaurant, order food separately. meals were large freshly cooked and great value. We sat away from the main family eating areas and watched the Horse and dog racing!
