As you pull into Methven Mt Hutt Village and stand at the cross roads of the two main streets (one fittingly named Main Street!) you'll see two pubs on opposite corners. One of them is Blue, one of them is Brown. Ours is the Brown one.

The catch phrase "your true country pub" is very apt as this is indeed a classic New Zealand country pub. Warm in atmosphere and welcome, you will feel right at home from the minute you walk in the door.

The Brown Pub is located right in the middle of town and offers the Main Bar, the Fireside Bar, a family restaurant, fresh, clean affordable accommodation and naturally a great time. We are also very proud to be awarded the Lion Breweries Beer Master award for demonstrating excellence in beer quality and presentation - two years running. So you know the beer is going to be good.

Our accommodation is backpacker style with shared bathroom facilities and a communal lounge and kitchette. As we host Karaoke some Friday nights in the Main Bar downstairs and this is a rip roaring night if you are keen to party, if you are more interested in a quiet night of eyeball cleaning, it may pay to check our events page prior to booking your accommodation. Alternatively let us know if you are keen on a quieter room and we will try to accommodate you.

  • Hi Rebecca, Thanks for the feedback. As per our booking information, the bar can indeed be a busy and entertaining place and we advise travellers who are looking for a quiet night to let us know so that we can endeavour to find you a room at the quieter end of the building - ie: above the restaurant and kitchen, not the bar. We hope you will stay again and please feel free to contact us direct re your requirements.

  • We were in a room that was right above a sub-woffer in the bar below. It was karaoke on the Friday night and it literally sounded like the people were singing in our room. The evening duty manager was really nice and apologised, but the next morning the other manager basically told us we should expect that we would have music blaring in our room because we were staying in an old pub. We realise that it is an old pub, but nowhere on the booking page of the website does it note "by the way, the accommodation section of our establishment is directly above the bar and your room will be excessively noisy". If it had said this, we would made other arrangements. We ended up finding another hotel for our final night in Methven and appreciate how quickly Bookit posted our refund. 1

  • Thanks for your constructive comments, we are well aware of noise carrying upstairs particularly in rooms above the bar. We also immediately approved your refund via Bookit even though this is not our accommodation policy. We have also reviewed our booking page and now have the following information posted: Please be aware that we host Karaoke most Friday nights in the Main Bar downstairs and while this is a rip roaring night if you are keen to party, if you are more interested in a quiet night of eyeball cleaning, it may pay to check our events page prior to booking your accommodation.
