Great friendly service, good coffee. Enjoyable breakfast meals which would be good value at full price. Great place to catch up with an old friend as it wasn't at all noisy.

Great place to go for a casual meal. Great service and flavoursome food. The wine list was also very good. Good vibe and relaxing atmosphere. Well worth the 40km round trip. Will be back with family and friends.

We sat outside, a lovely place to sit on a lovely Christchurch day. I had the Egg Florentine and my daughters had the chicken filo and the other had pizza and chips. The service was excellent and the witness was happy and relaxed. The food came out in excellent time and presentation and quality was great. Would highly recommend Sugar horse

The service and food was good there was a bit of a confusion over my starter I ordered breads and dips to start and a pizza but the lady who took our order said that that was a lot of bread and so I Chandos my order to breads and dips and the salad for main but when it came I was so disappointed she had brought me cheese flat bread now I don't know if this was a miss communion on my part or hers but it spoiled my meal

Wow I have to say that is probably the nicest meals I have had since moving to Christchurch. Made all the more so by using First Table. I had the fillet steak which was cooked to perfection as we the new potatoes and veg it came with. The jus was delicious. My son had the chicken burger sald and fries which were well presented and a good sized portion. Some places do massive burgers which just takes away from the overall enjoyment. The service was lovely and attentive without being intrusive. The guy who took our payment at the end wasn't very happy looking, must have had a bad day, didn't smile or exchange pleasantries .I would definitely return

Since we've dined at sugarhorse before, we can compare the food, size and service from before, and it's not good news. I believe, because we've had a 50% off food voucher through first table, we've been served smaller portion sizes, to make up for the difference. The seafood share basket was filled mainly with chips, the cheesecakes were so thin, I think our two slices would have made up for one, on a full price order( one thin slice is $13.5, are you kidding?) They think people wouldn't pick up on these. Not a good idea. First experience was good, but not this time. We're not going back anymore. Can't stand businesses, that prefer a quick buck over long term loyal customers. Sad...

We were shown to our table as soon as we arrive and within a few minutes our drinks order was taken. We were given a while to relax and check out the menu We ordered the cheesy bread first, which was very crispy and light..When our mains arrived they were more than we expected. the fish n chips were plentiful and I had the tandoori chicken. It had plenty of flavour and you wouldn't want anymore. This was a very enjoyable evening out. Unfortunately the weather was miserable and there were not many people at Sugarhouse on this particular Thursday night. I can only hope as the weather warms up more people will dine here during the week.

Our first time at Sugarhorse. The food was very tasty. Three of our party had mains which they all enjoyed. I went for three entrees which were all delicious. Garlic prawns were a generous size. A lovely dessert at the end, it was my husband's birthday and at my request the waitress put a candle on the sticky date pudding which was also delicious. Great service.... the only downsides were cost of Pinot by the glass and it was very quiet, there weren't many people dining. We would go back!!

Food was delicious and really enjoyed everything. The service was a little strange as I felt like I was being judged by the waiter, first off when I asked for water (even though everyone else at the table ordered an alcohol drink) and secondly when I tried to order "too much food". It was really strange...my table and me laughed about it but it was still a bit odd. I felt a little uncomfortable. Would go back though, the food was great and it could have just been a once off.

We had a 2 year old with us and the staff were not only lovely to us but very accommodating to her restlessness and came down to her level and engaged with her and made her feel special. They were very tolerant and the food was delicious! The sticky date pudding was amazing but beware if you order the cheesecake its super sweet!!
