The home of hospitality in the Hutt!

Run by husband and wife dream team Paul and Rachel Rowan, this multi-award-winning bar boasts two sun soaked beer gardens, a child friendly atmosphere and an excellent gastropub menu. There's live music on Fridays and a selection of board games to entertain too.

The menu offers delicious slow cooked and slow smoked dishes using traditional braised and slow roasting techniques. Tuck into Brewer and Butcher's 'Porkies Revenge', a mouth-watering piece of 7 hr pork belly on creamy mash with steamed spinach and a chillied apple sauce , finished with red wine jus.

Produce used is sustainable and traceable. Paul, Rachel and the team can trace all meat products back to either the local supplier, farm or paddock. They can even tell you the captain's name of the boat your fish came from.

Great beer, great hospitality and excellent food is to be found at The Brewer and Butcher.

Atmosphere and service was great, staff are very friendly, entrees were yummy, very generous and fulling, ordered steak for main, was edible but very salty and was closer to rare than medium rare, otherwise the overall experience was great!

The BBQ wing starter was amazing, the supercharger hot sauce (made in house!!) was one of the best hot sauces I've had. It had some heat, which is pretty hard to find in NZ and there was no sacrifice in flavour!! The wings, half rack, was huge and I couldn't finish it. Super tender and the housemade BBQ sauce was delicious. Fries were great, spray bottle of vinegar on the table was a really cool touch. Would definitely return!! Probably for lots more wings and a desert.

I’m not sure I would head back to butcher and brewer. Not all the meals were available on the night and the service lacked. I had a chicken burger and chips which were nice. Love first table because it allows you to try different places.

Really enjoyed our night out. I had the Broccoli and cheese balls - super delicious! Then the Terikihi with chips and mushy peas which I couldn't finish as portion size is generous. Partner had the chicken and bacon bites which were succulent and tasty with accompanying sauce, along with a 1/2 rack of ribs, which he loved. Again, portion size was generous! This is the third time we've eaten here - always leave happy and content!!

The beef thai salad looked amazing but was drenched in so much in dressing that It just ruined the flavour of the salad so my daughter and I barely ate any of it. the snacks were good but could taste the oil in the fried items. the staff were lovely but only came over to us to take our orders didnt come back after that.

Very polite, kind and helpful service! Wings were nice with the different sauces, mains were a bit of a let down. Both meals were very over seasoned, steak cooked nicely but the pork belly dish was dry and not very pleasant. Presentation spot on! A few let downs but over all was an ok night out.

Service was a bit slow. Our steaks were tender and well cooked, but the sauce wasn't great. We had to wait for almost half an hour for our Monster Donut dessert to arrive - not sure why it took so long as it was just a stack of stale supermarket donuts filled with custard and icecream topped off with stale caramel popcorn.

Really average food. The fish tasted off and fishy. It was really cold despite sitting beside a heater. It was our waitress's first trial night on the job and another employee followed behind her and kept watching over her shoulder to ensure she was doing everything right.

Nice old pub feel environment. The food was sooooo delish. We had steak. It was sooo nice, tasty, cooked to perfection. Then had sticky date pudding with yummy yummy sauce. Had a nice big piece. Be the nicest I've had... But no cream or ice cream with it Had to pay for a scoop of ice cream to go with it, and also if I'd wanted cream. Most desserts come with either cream or ice cream without extra cost.
