The restaurant is a bit out of the center of Picton, but not too far, so you can walk to it. The restaurant was very busy when we arrived and we were lucky to find a free table. Prices are very reasonable, portions are big...More

Description
Nestled in the picturesque town of Picton at the top of the South Island, New Zealand, and at the gateway to the beautiful Marlborough Sounds, is the ‘Crow Tavern. A home away from home for the local residents of Picton and tourists as well. Located on the town square it is the only Tavern in town and is surrounded by a residential area. The Crow has a full restaurant, public bar, lounge bar, bottle store, smoking area, gaming room and garden bar. It is a place where business is done, jokes are told and celebrations are held. The ladies feel comfortable in the bar and the staff and patrons are one big family. Customers share their family occasions here and sit outside in the pretty garden bar all summer long. In winter the huge open fire is a big draw card along with the big screen TVs for watching the rugby.Around the tavern are many photos of local rugby teams, fishing excursions and boats in precarious positions previously owned by local patrons.The Tavern was first built in 1855 and has been rebuilt twice since. The Crow is one of the few places in Marlborough with history of the area on the walls. The restaurant has a wall dedicated to ‘The Echo’, one of the oldest ships in the world which is now beached at Shelly beach near the town center.
