My wife & I stayed at Aaron Lodge Park and walked the 800 odd metres up the road mid afternoon to see what it was like and to decide if we should eat there. Immediately we made a booking to eat there that night. Ambience is great, service is even better! Young lady and young bloke who looked after us... More

Was impressed with the size and quality of the meals here. Very reasonably priced and left full and not hungry. Would definately come back here.

This was just what we were looking for in a Sunday lunch; decent portions at a very reasonable price, and a cosy old-fashioned pub atmosphere. The roast chicken special was quite nice, and my partner liked the beef burger - the drinks were a bargain too, $3 for a beer! We rounded it all off with a really delicious chocolate-orange... More

My partner and I stopped in at the Cableways Tavern lounge bar for a mid-afternoon refreshment last Sunday (25 October 2015). The surrounds are pleasant enough; the theme is Olde Worlde Tram Car, apparently due to a tram line which used to run through that area. The service, however, was appallingly bad. We stood at the unstaffed bar for close... More

golly I enjoyed it here as reminded me of a lot of English pubs. Weirdly the menu was quite British seeming too, then found out the chef is British. Enjoyed my meal had potato skins and hubby had the regular snitzel and it was house. Well priced, quick and chunky portions. I found the service friendly. Def be back 👍👍👍🌴👍

Enjoyed several meals here while working in Dunedin nearby. They were consistently well presented, delicious and good value. Better than the average pub meal. Highly recommend.
