Was looking for somewhere to eat and found The Craypot, tempted in by the craft beers and discovered a great little place to eat. I had the steak salad and it was really good. Several different areas to sit in, cafe type tables if with children or pub comfy seats if settling in for the night. Very reasonably priced which was a bonus. Friendly staff. Enjoyable evening.

We called in for lunch, and had plenty of options that we were tempted to try.
There are craft beers on tap, and the prices were in keeping with the area.
The service was good and the wait for the food wasn't long (it wasn't busy when we were there).

Found this eatery, on a recent visit to Kaikoura. The space invited me into see what is on offer. Pleasantly surprised, at was on the menu, and a good selection of drinks available.
I found the lunch reasonably priced, and the food of good quality. Impressed with the space available within the building, and outside tables,to choose a place to sit.
Would visit there again.

We decided to have a quiet dinner of burger but don't want to pay high price in nearby pub. Craypot is an excellent alternative. It offers a friendly, homey dinning experience. Very free, relaxing, good value, no rush. Lots of choices of beer.
Order is taken at the bar and payment made. Food will be brought over when it is ready. We had beef burger with beacon, grilled blue cod on seasonal green. Taste great. With beer and a bundaberg, total $53. Not bad, right?
