Tui HQ is an experience centre with a lot to offer. Equiped with a newly built brewery on site amongst the garden bar, conferencing and private functions facilities, a Cafe, Bar and also our Tuishop - The home of all things Tui. Come and take a tour, have a tastings and take home a personalised bottle with your name on it or just relax while the kids play out on the lush green lawn. Our special brew Henry Wagstaff is a great match with our Fish & Chips....certainly worth a visit to check out.

Great destination

Made a day trip out of it in a mini bus with 13 people. Staff were great and so were the beverages. Plenty of things to see. We all had a heap of fun. Thanks!

This was a very nice place to eat good food great service. But forget the tour it was a let down basicly it added up to be a 20 dollar glass of beer was very disappointing .. I felt they should forget the tours and just work the restaurant

Great atmosphere in the bar area even through a week day. Leaner tables and high stools. Good menu and chalkboard specials. Coffee and excellent savoury muffin was nzd 8.00. Soup of the day was nzd12.00.

We came all the way here because my brother in law needed a new pair of jandals from the gift shop. As my sister lives in Ashburton but was visiting Wanganui then this was the opportunity. We timed it well and stayed for lunch. Food was good, service friendly. I didn't try the beer as I don't drink at all... More
