Walking in to the smell of an open wood fire and the friendly smiles of the staff. Can't get a better welcome! Friendly and very good service. All the food was amazing. The ribs especially were AMAZING! THE MOST TENDER, FALL OFF THE BONE AND MELT IN YOUR MOUTH KIND. Lovely big portions . We were all stuffed when we left. Highly recommend to all.

i’ve been here maybe more than 7 times !!
i like the food and the service too, so yummy and really nice staff.
i just missed the chiken burger with the crispy chiken, they don’t have it anymore.. if you please can put it back and sometimes maybe the food made by different chef so the taste changed a bit.
but overall one of my fav place for chill!!

Pizzas were a little under done and doughy with very little toppings on for the size of the pizza.
Service was very attentive and food was reasonably priced even without the discount.
Chicken was yum!

What a delight. After a big day skiing the slopes we just wanted to relax and enjoy some great wine and food. Searle Lane delivered the goods. Service was prompt and they accommodated is like we were part of the family. This was my first ever experience with first table. 10/10

Good service, decent hearty food, but no soap in the toilet!! When we brought it to the staff's attention they said there was none left in the building and they were waiting for a delivery tomorrow.....yuk.

We had a great time at Seale Lane. The waitress had the table set up for us and was happy to run us through the menu. She was prompt taking our order and the food came through really quick. I love the way the place is decorated and it's really affordable. The pizza's seemed like they were cooked on a store bought base but considering the price, this is understandable. Loved the fries! Thanks for a lovely meal.

The food and service were excellent. Would highly recommend. The music was just really too loud, we could not hold a conversation during dinner without shouting. Maybe the music could be loud at the bar but softer in the dining area? Cheers!

I tend to scroll through first table - Queenstown and see that Searle Lane doesn’t get booked that regularly. This obviously made me feel like the quality etc wasn’t that great. How wrong was I. This is clearly one of the most under-rated first table experiences in Queenstown. We arrived early, and could be seated immediately. The waitress was soo friendly and chatty. The food is extremely reasonably priced (even without the discount). Arancini balls were a stand out. Thankyou!

No toilet paper in woman’s toilet all night, even after staff were prompted about this, looked like the place was really under staffed. We tried to pay and couldn’t even see anyone apart from one bar person and the chefs in the kitchen. Food was fantastic, but unfortunately let down by service and toilet facilities.

Staff were really friendly! The back door was left open (i am not sure why?) And it was freezing for the most part of the meal!! I dont get cold really either! Please have the door closed on cold days. Starters were good. We got the mixed grill and our young one who loves chicken got the rotteserie chicken. The steak was awesome, but only 1 bit for 2 people. The ribs were pretty ok. The chicken though was dry and not tasty. Our young one left her chicken breast because of how dry it was. I had a dessert special which was icecream with choclate sauce, a shot of baileys/coffee. It was really great. The other two had the crumble and didnt rave about it. All the courses took ages and ages waiting, made worse by the cold temperature. All up, ok but not sure I would go again.
