The Blue Pub

4.4
2 Star Hotel

Right in the middle of Mt Hutt Village you’ll find The Blue Pub Methven, and you can’t miss it, because it’s, well…blue. Perfectly situated a short drive from no less than six different ski fields and the famous Mt Hutt Ski Area is but a snowball’s throw away. A truly gorgeous building with sweeping verandahs, and inside you’ll find a warm welcome, cold beer, excellent wine, delicious food and relaxing, comfortable accommodation perfect after a day of adventure in this awesome part of the country.
Whether you choose the Blue Restaurant for a great á la carte meal in front of the fire or catch up with our crew in the main bar and munch through the famous Blue Burger on the verandah in the sun….you will have made the right choice either way.

The Blue likes to think that it’s one of Canterbury’s major live venues for music and many renowned artists have played here!  Whether it’s a band in the Main Bar or a bigger touring band rocking it in Samuels Summit Bar… it’s always a great night. And if you stay a bit too late and feel a little “well done” our rooms upstairs are there for the taking.
