The food was really good.
We found the music in the restaurant to be too loud, as all guests seem to be shouting at their tables. We couldn't really hear the waitress when she was explaining the specials. It won't put me off going again though!

This is a place where everyone knows their role and is good at it!
We enjoyed a farewell dinner with family before they flew out to Perth today and they were suitably impressed.
We are lucky to live quite close to The Old Vicarage as it is our favourite restaurant! Thanks to everyone who looked after us so well!

The atmosphere in the restaurant was very cosy, yet sets the mood due to lovely decor.

My partner and I ordered a couple of entrees to share, and the fish cake was by far my favourite.

Ordered the Beef fillet and Venison rump as main, I asked for the steak to be cooked rare, but it was more medium rare. The potato stack(?) was a bit lacking in texture and cheesy for my liking.

The service could improve and be more attentive, as we were left waiting quite often.

Overall, I enjoyed my experience there, definitely worth trying!

Wow! Where to start. The staff were bubbly, friendly and helpful. The meals were absolutely amazing delicious. They say you eat with your eyes, well, when the plates arrived, our eyes were devouring the food before we could pick up the knife and fork. So well presented and equally tasty. Highly recommend dining here, you won’t be disappointed. Compliments to the chef and the staff.

We dined with out of town visitors. We all felt the meals were beautifully presented, tasted delicious and the cocktails were imaginative. The staff & service were also attentive and consistent. Thank you for a great night.

Great food and friendly staff, highly recommended! The cheesecake was big and 2 out of 3 couldn't finish it due to the size and the good food beforehand.

As a family group of 3 we each chose a different dish and each was OUTSTANDING! In fact we wanted to share a tasty morsel with each other because it was so good. We also passed on our compliments to the chef. Highly recommended.

It was a pleasure to take my Auckland based Brother and his partner out for Dinner prior to them heading home - not to mention the First Table option seeing we are retired people. My brother, and ourselves, are very complimentary regarding The Vicarage - the dining atmosphere was wonderful, food and service were both A1. Friendly, obliging table service. I must thank you for giving them (and us) a great experience. Many thanks again

The food was really delicious, service was pretty good. It was our first time eating here and we would definitely go back.

I had the venison rump with smoked hickory pumpkin purée, so good. My partner had the pork belly which was what he’d been craving, pretty good also. The cheesecake for dessert was also top notch.

The very good experience started with arranging a table where we could have our dog with us and it just got better from there. We were greeted by a young very energetic lad who was good at his job and is a "keeper". The food was a very good standard. My daughters Venison was the best she had eaten and my steak was very good but a little chewy in places, potatoes very good. I wanted to try the Old Vicarage as the last time I went there, it was not a good experience on many levels. Huge improvement.
