In Greymouth is this little vintage Dunollie hotel
/pub. When we walked in we had our masks on as it was and still is mandatory to wear a mask when you enter into a business but no one else was wearing theirs and we kind of both got funny looks so we took them off. At the time there were no positive cases on the West Coast, now there is sadly, it's pretty much everywhere.
This photo above is what one side of the hotel looked like with the pool table and bar area.
This was the eating side of the hotel - we sat near the windows looking outside to the entrance.
B pretty much always gets fish and chips, a true kiwi staple but I ordered the quintessential shrinp cocktail complete with loads of thousand island dressing.
The history of this hotel is that the building we were in is a rebuild. The original Dunollie Hotel was a 2 storied building which was constructed in January 1905 but was destroyed in a fire on March 9th 1928. An attempt was made to relocate the license to a proposed new hotel in nearby Runanga but it was defeated by an effort by local church groups. The present hotel was built shortly after.
