The Farriers Bar & Eatery in Masterton is a pub with a difference. Passionate about great food and caring hospitality, the team aim to get everything just right – just like the professionals they take their name from.

Taking the term ‘gastro pub fare’ to a whole new level, their menu is inspired by their favourite local producers who produce quality, seasonal ingredients. As much food as possible is made fresh and from scratch, and is home-baked, home-smoked and home-cured. Enjoy a lunch of wood-fired pizzas hot from the oven, or try their chicken and leek pie, Farriers’ fish and chips and grilled beef and blue cheese sandwich.

But to truly enjoy your experience at the Farriers, you have to taste their dinner menu. Start off with their famous beer-battered brie or famous barbeque chicken wings, before diving into a butternut squash and ricotta ravioli, beef wellington or chargrilled lamb rump. The Farriers are more than happy to try accommodate any dietary requirements, and the eatery is family-friendly, with an exciting kids menu ready to please the little ones.

Named after the famous quote about how the importance of a horse nail can never be underestimated (Benjamin Franklin), the team at The Farriers believe it’s the small details that make the biggest difference. Head to their eatery for great food and good times.

Was lovely experience. Everything tasted amazing from the seafood chowder to the steak and the pork belly. The banana split was so big not even my husband could finish it. The wait staff were great and friendly and the environment was lovely. Perfect evening out for hubby and I.

This was our second time dining at The Farriers Bar & Eatery in Masterton as our first dining experience here was truly a wonderful experience. The food was fresh and so very tasty with excellent attention to detail so the presentation was definitely a feast for the eyes…..we dined on fresh NZ green lip muscles, panko crumbed creamy brie and traditional seafood chowder along with a serve of sticky baby back ribs finishing off with the most delicious sticky date pudding surrounded by crème anglaise and hot butterscotch sauce……yummo!!!!

The team at The Farriers Bar & Eatery are friendly, helpful and completed our wonderful dining experience which I fully encourage people to dine here too

Absolutely gorgeous food here and we loved everything we ate - particularly the melting chocolate ball. The starters were very large with generous proportions of cheese flatbread which was great for two people. The crumbed brie, although also generous in size, you won't want to share! Yum!

I would recommend going light on starters or main if you want to accommodate the chocolate ball as it's big and rich. Delicious!

We were served promptly with each course and friendly table staff. It seems a popular place looking at numbers at that early time on a Thursday. Decor is very nice too.
Great night out. We will definitely visit again.

I appreciate that the Farrier is not a fine dining experience. However I would have expected better service with properly trained staff. In a completely empty restaurant we were offers a tiny table which was balanced by bar coasters.
We chose our own table which was considerably better. The wine arrived at our table eventually unopened and were not given the opportunity to taste it first. We had to request water several times. Obviously staff training is not a priority here at all.
It did surprise me that we were not asked to cook our own meal as that is exactly what we were expecting
The food was below par. My partners meal was not completely cooked . One good thing was the size of the portions.
So if you are looking for a restaurant where you are treated like cattle, want food that is bland then this is the place for you.
I have made this public as a warning to potential diners. Caveat emptor

As always, great service and excellent food. I was sceptical about dining so early, but we weren't rushed at all and it was perfect timing for the kids who are permanently hungry. Great selection of dishes available without being overwhelmed with choices. Highly recommend the chocolate melting ball for dessert.

Waitress was a bit rude when she had to go back to kitchen and ask question that she should have known anyway. More PR training for this young girl. FOOD FANTASTIC.

Really looked forward to dining at the Farriers.
Wasn't disappointed at all.
Very generous size starters.
The Main was equally so.
Didn't sample the desserts in the end, was very tempting, but next time for sure.
Drop in to the Farriers, you won't be disappointed.
