I have been here a few times on a Sat for lunch. It is clean and has a nice dining area. Last time I was looking forward to a meal I usually order but they had just changed the menu. The food my family ordered wasn't as good as the previous visits. My son really liked the kids pack they gave him and it kept him occupied. The staff need to be more attentive to tables after they have finished their mains, every time after a long wait we have had to call someone over to get our sons desert.
Keen to support Wellington on a plate in upper hutt we ventured to TMH - warm welcome and informative about the menu when we arrived late afternoon - no mention of bookings being required or recommended. Free pool table available to the side of the bar which we enjoyed. On ordering our 2nd glass of wine informed they were out of stock (even though was recomended by bar staff when orginally ordered) disappointing but no deal breaker - went to proceed to restaurant for dinner and were told its fully booked offered bar stool table - not ideal and would have been nice when we arrived and went through menu to be told we might have decided to go elsewhere or might have been able to booked a table. Crab entree ok, venison main amazing, duck very disappointing but service was consistent and quick - perhaps to quick as mains arrived before our entree had been cleared (bearly finished) .
Such a lovely place - the fire is amazing on a cold night, and creates a very cosy vibe. The staff go out of their way to be helpful and courteous, and I was very impressed. The food was delicious (loved the stuffed chicken), and even though there were some members of the group who complained, the staff treated us perfectly. Kudos to them!
Highly recommended. This is my regular go to restaurant for breakfast on the weekend. I would definitely rate this place for its amazing service, food and atmosphere.
They have an area with a pool table that's great for having a get together with friends and enjoying a few drinks. The area by the bar that has a more casual vibe to it, somewhere both suitable for drinks and nibbles or even if you're sitting down for a meal, its also a good place for listening to the live music. Then you have the outdoor ares with picnic style tables and large sun umbrellas which is definitely the place to be on a warm summers day. And last but not least the large restaurant area that is lovely and cosey in winter with the bonus of a fireplace.
Call me biased but the Eggs Benedict is one of the best I've ever had. The poached eggs are always perfectly done, they are generous with the bacon and hollandaise and it is served on lovely golden hash brown/potato cakes that are simply the best.
I huge plus for this place on top of all its other great features would be its wide selection of beverages. They have some great beers on tap that are definitely worth trying.
Helpful Tips: ALWAYS make sure you book in advance for dinner on a Tuesday night as its 2for1 mains, so its always very busy and almost impossible to just walk in on the night and get a table. They have great deals on other nights of the week too such as Monday - Kids dine free, Wednesday - All you can eat Ribs and on Thursday its build your own Steak night.
