We regularly go to Craythornes for dinner as it's an easy restaurant for the kids to dine in, but last night our meals were less than average. Our steaks were burnt, I asked for GF but my steak still had a random beer battered fry underneath it which means my meal was cross contamination. My son ordered the kids cheese burger but the pattie inside was this tiny meatball.
Service as always was on point, but the food was not great.

Really disappointed.. My roast of the day was luke warm. Poor amount of vegetables and if the normal cost of this it is not value for money. They offered to warm up my meal but that would have been done in a microwave which I do not like. My husband's meal was also luke warm but he said it was okay. We won't be back.

The meals ordered by the ladies were amazing and tasty when it came to the boys order it appeared that they had shrunk considerably and very boring salads along side a small whitebait fritter so a bit disappointed in this.

Welcome and surroundings were ok, however with only a handful of diners we waited a very long time for our meals.
The roast was tasteless and the supposedly roast vegetables consisted mainly of huge boiled carrots half raw. We won’t be back.

Friendly service and a warm greeting. This is our local, and we pop in occasionally. However, we haven't been for a dinner for a while, and great to see some new additions to the menu. Loved the Venison shanks after an entree of a very good seafood chowder with heaps of seafood. My son had the quesadilla to start, and followed with the terakihi.
A great meal.

Not as good as our last visit.Two of our meals were below par.They were the burger and eye fillet which was requested medium rare.So a little disappointing for a first table experience.
It was a pleasant surprise to find happy hour operating.
