The food is always great at pedal pusher and we were not disappointed this time either. It is hard to find somewhere that 3 generations of family will all enjoy but pedal pusher is one of them. It is good value anyway but with fist table as well it made it even better!

Firstly the service at Pedal Pusher Addington is fantastic! The apmosphare is great! Everyone was so friendly and had a laugh with us but was also not too pushy when it came to asking us how our meals were etc. Secondly the food was amazing! Perfect sizes and even better tastes! This is my new favourite go to place to come for a drink/bite to eat and a full meal!

This upmarket pub is very busy on warm summer evenings. We dined for lunch this time and found the quieter atmosphere to be just as enjoying. We started out in their outdoor patio as it was a hot sunny day then came inside for a more cooling experience when we overcooked! They even turned down the music down for us without us having to ask so we could have a great old natter while enjoying the delicious food. They cater very well for Gluten free and vegetairains and aslo have a keto inspired dish on their menu which was delicious.

It’s become a tradition to bring my mom here the night before she flies home to Scotland. The reason behind this tradition? We are always guaranteed great food and service so we know moms last night in NZ will always be a good one.
The other bonus is their GF selection ( and good understanding of GF)so my daughter, who has coeliac disease, is guaranteed a great night too.

Dined here for First Table on Saturday night before movies. Had a great meal and food well presented and very tasty. Service started off very well until the night progressed and we got forgotten, hence didn't have time for dessert when our order was finally taken. Wouldn't let this put us off for returning again though.

Great night. First time dine in Pedal Pusher. Participated in house quiz contest. Though our table came out third in position but we enjoyed a lot. We spent more than 4 hours. Food were so yummy. Kids loved the wheel decoration on wall and on the ceiling. Highly recommended. I will give 5 STAR rating.

Good food and great service thanks very much. Staff were very accommodating with a little tardiness and my friend had to dash off for a forgotten dentist appt half way through and the staff put our food on hold so we could all eat hot food! Thanks so much!

Food was average and waited over an hour for it, which was confusing as only a couple of other tables full. Noticed a lot of Uber eats deliveries going on though. My friend had the salmon fish of the day and was disappointed some of it was cold. I had the pork and it was ok but lacked any flavour. Service was pleasant enough but mostly absent/distracted.

I went here as a group of 4 and we all had different main meals. The meals were beautifully presented and had amazing flavours. The entire table was very happy. They had a great drinks list as well. My husband and I both thought it was the best meal out we had all year. Will definitely be back soon!

It was time to catch up with friends, some from out of town. The Pedal pusher was selected and didn't disappoint. The stars of the meal were the cheese croquettes and the venison rump but the chocolate platter for two was given high ratings too.
We ended up with 5 people (and had booked for 4) and the staff were very accomodating. The only issue with service was around a plate of polenta fries that somehow got missed in the order, but that's not the end of the world (we ordered two but only one showed up - that one was excellent though!).
We had a few drinks and sat and chatted - this is a great venue for nice food, attentive service and space and time to enjoy with friends - we'll be back...

We were blown away by the caliber of food served to us. My husband was dubious about dining here as our last experience was just okay. This was the most delicious meal we have had in a long time. Every serving was full of flavor and cooked to perfection...we hope they're paying the chefs well because their food is amazing, definitely coming back.
