On Friday the 15th we had a group of about 20 approx in one of the side rooms, being winter, it was good to have the fireplace, the venue was warm, and not too hot so the ambience for group bater and noise level was good for this room.

There is a wide range of good beers on tap

Food was very good, I have the ribs and it fell off the bone very well, I have a bit of food envy with a few in the group with their burgers, to looked very good and all the people with burgers were happy with thier choice. I felt bad having to leave early due to a second commitment and not sampling the desert, but it the mains are good, I would be say the deserts will be too. I looked as the various meals, I think what ever you choose, you will be happy. The $$ match the quality/

The highlight was the service, the waitress had great interaction skills with the large group, very upbeat and friendy, and very comfortable in this environment which the service felt natural and not forced, and the orders were all perfectly done, so 10/10 for service (flawless)

I do look forward to coming back the blenhiem, and trying out addtioanl meals and a desert. Well done to the Owners, staff, chiefs, its a great food experience

Stopped here when staying locally on business based on previous reviews and have to say the chicken wings and the lamb salad were spot on. Decent beer too and a nice cosy atmosphere. Service was a little slow and heard from locals it can get a bit dodgy late on.

The jerk fried chicken pizza with jalapeno is used to be the best pizza in the world. We love it so much that I went for it every Tuesday just for this. However, the new recipe of jerk fried chicken pizza is with corn but no more jalapeno, which is no good at all. When I asked for the old recipe one, they do make me but charged $8 extra without even informing me. I am deeply disappointed and lost interest in regular visit. I hope the old recipe will be back soon.

The pizza here was some of the best I've ever tasted, and I happened on a buy one, get one free evening. The wine and beer selections and service were good as well. it's a casual spot, not a fancy gourmet place, in downtown Blenheim with on-street parking.
