A nice wee brew/cafe/restaurant a stones throw from Christchurch and well worth stopping at if only to avoid where the masses stop along the way. The lower mark on selection is only because they sell their own beer, which I think is absolutely laudable. Excellent food, service and tasty beer. A place Iím happy to bring visitors to.

Beautiful little place, right on the hihway north of CHCH. A handful of outdoor tables if the weather is nice, a nice sized beer garden if the weather is iffy, and inside tables if the weather is ncooperative. Four beers on tap available in tasters, plus a couple of bottles, all very tasty. Baked goods, coffee, and pizzas as well. Head brewer ( a woman, yay! Belinda) busy toling away in the attached bwery. A nice stop while in the area.

Like a country pub that does its own brewing, short drive from Christchurch. Food is tasty and the portions are hearty. Staff were very friendly and could chat about the beer. Tasting trays are great value.

Thereís a lot to like about this simple road-side cafe just 30 minutes north of Christchurch. Serves a nice range of burgers, gourmet pizza and salads. All 4 house beers on tap. Nothing flash in terms of ambience and fit-out but it sure works for me. Tastign tray $8.80 otherwise ~$4 for a 350ml serve.

Very cool place, huge dining room with an attached outdoor courtyard. Nice looking menu, although we didnít really have time to eat. Lots of external seating. Not really a pub, more of a country-inn restaurant sort of vibe, but itís still a decent place to kill a few pints on the way to Kaikoura.
