|The Ancient Briton is Naseby's first and oldest tavern, established in early 1863 to service the bustling gold trade of the day it now caters to locals and holiday makers alike.
Home to several champion curling clubs like the Pioneer ladies, Naseby and Otago Central the 'Top Pub' is still the favorite meeting place for farmers and locals.
Steeped in High Country and Curling history, with trophies and records of the times, in fact the oldest contested trophy in New Zealand is still housed at the Ancient. There is a welcoming bar with a large dining room and separate accommodation lodge that can sleep up to 35 in en-suited rooms.
A country kitchen, a local wine list and lots in between to tempt any seasoned traveller. Whether you’re here to bike the forest, curl in the all season indoor curling rink or just to soak up the unique experience that is only Naseby, a stay at the Ancient Briton will enhance that experience
