Description: A wonderful friendly Historic styled restaurant and bar with a warm inviting atmosphere. Owners and staff who love what they do will ensure dining out is easy and enjoyable. Very family friendly with a playground, huge garden and plenty of toys. Also very suitable for Grandma and Grandad with smaller meal options and plenty of space. Carpet to keep the noise down. A busy restaurant 7 days per week ensures all meals are made fresh daily there is plenty of selection. All day dining so the kitchen is open no matter how early or late you wish to eat. Come on down and check out the new old decor. Showing off the history of Rangiora and the surrounds.

Very attentive staff, drinks came quickly and unobtrusively. Food arrived in fairly good time and as specified. Fillet steak was cooked to perfection as was the pork belly and chicken dishes. All in all very well received by all and clean plates! Prices were fair.

We went with little expectations, as the plough looks like a large country pub needing some updating. We were very pleasantly surprised by the standard of the food. I had the vegetarian dinner and my husband had the salmon both were excellent- I would say my vegetarian meal was one of the best I have had whilst traveling around New Zealand over the last month. We then shared the lemon meringue pie which again was great. Staff were friendly and helpful. There was a small choice of local craft beer but none on hand pump. Definitely would recommend this pub.

Decent value food, with ample roasts for $20. But for a hotel dating back to 1861, it's a shame all traces of its history and heritage have been lost.

The swirly carpets, formica-topped tables, sports TV screens and pokies machines give this place the ambience of a 1970s RSA club. But hey, maybe that's what the locals want.

What particularly spoiled things for me was ordering a beer described on the tap as 'NZ Pale Ale', which turned out to be dark, bitter and really not to my taste.
