    We had lunch with friends. Food was lovely ... the dishes are designed to be shared - we got one each plus chips which was ample. I loved the lemongrass chicken skewers!  more »

    The tour is alright but you do get the feeling the heritage and history of the Monteiths name has been lost in favour a fashionable attempt to cash in on the craft beer craze. The guide was very pleas...  more »

    A great place to pop in for good beer and tasty food. It was great on a wild rainy west coast day to sit by the fire. The food was a little on the pricey side, but it was good quality and cooked well.  more »

  • all round good food, with a price that reflects it. Chips were incredibly good, again with a price to match. $9 for not much more than a handful! I wouldn't order them again but I did enjoy them enough that I don't regret it as a one-off.
  • Awesome selection of beers and food was outstanding. Would recommend the Radler to drink and Ribs or Venison Sliders to eat. Tour was probably the best i have been on. Unrestricted access to all areas of the brewery. Production had finished for the day so I think we were able to go into more areas. A definite must if in the area.
  • Good collection of Beer to taste from. Must advise to pickup their tasting trays which cater for 3/6 glasses depending on taste. Accompanied food was great, though we had a mixup and our food was delivered to next table, the staff sorted it quickly and got our order prioritized.
  • What a fantastic brewery the best staff ever it's a must see and a tour is highly recommended. But best of all the beer 🍻 is the best
  • Awesome place to chill for a bit on a Sunday arvo and watch the wild weather outside through the huge glass wall. Beer is cold and most definitely the freshest Monteiths I have ever had. Go figure. The Hapuku sliders and beef cheek croquettes were delicious but on the small side for the price. Worth the trip from Hanmer Springs.
