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.

Fantastic selection of food! Catering for our family at restaurants isn't easy with two who must have Gluten Free, one Dairy Free and one who doesn't like most restaurant food! The menu at this restaurant had obviously had lots of thought put in for all customers requirements and provided multiple options for everyone and the food was plentiful and very tasty.We will be going back there.

Great food and service. Thought prices were perhaps a little high compared to similar establishments. Good atmosphere for pre-match crowds though.

Our waitress was superb, so helpful and accommodating. Her suggestions were great. We shared tasting plates; the fish goujons were delicious, the cheese croquettes with deep fried jalapeños I would not have chosen but the recommendation was excellent and they were devine. Tasty dumplings... and the triple ice cream flavours came with toffee banana, petite mini homemade marshmallow, berries, white chocolate soil...so tasty and attractively presented. I would highly recommend this restaurant.

Fantastic meal at pedal pusher. A family favorite of ours. Service was great. Coffee was very good and Kai was delicious. Husband has the lamb, which he loved. I had the polenta fries, Asian chicken starter and dumplings. Dumplings were on the average side but the rest I loved.

The ambience at Pedal Pusher was already buzzing as we walked in! We had an incredible evening with fantastic service (our waitress was so sweet and funny with great recommendations) and the food was DELICIOUS! And, really large portions! So for once we couldn't clean our plates! Definitely going back again! THANKS FIRST TABLE & PEDAL PUSHER!

New menu as of a week ago and it tastes great!!
We had the polenta fries and the smoked cheese croquettes to start and they were both absolutely delicious and very filling!
For mains we had the kumara hash cakes and the Pedal Pusher breakfast and again these did not disappoint. Great portions, cooked well and tasted delicious. Just writing this review is making me hungry!
Would absolutely recommend and go back!

We arrived at Pedal Pusher to a very friendly lady . She was very helpful explains the new menu. I said we had been before and rated it 9.5. The Eggs Benne were wonderful and home made Hollandaise Sauce. The Chef went all out to get a 10...and HE DID !!! Congratulations Pedal Pusher. The music was very loud and the waitress happily turned it down. All in all, we were very happy.

We thoroughly enjoyed the food and the service was wonderful. The staff were very friendly and accommodating. The only thing was it was near impossible to talk due to the live singing. The singing was excellent but far too loud.
