We were recommended this place by the Motel we were staying at when we did the Cycling tour. It was good for a couple of beers and a large, hot meal which was tasty, well priced and good value. Just what we needed. Thank you.

This is a proper pub, with a good range of drinks and seating. The super friendly staff serve huge cheap yummy meals. It is not in the main part of town, but they have a courtesy van that can pick you and drop you off - on the night we were there the driver was the same friendly person (Kim) who served our drinks and food - love that!

Old school pub with good, simple food, well priced. We had delicious chowder and fish of the day having been warned of a 40 minute wait for the meal but we were happy to sit and watch the locals playing pool and having a few beers. Friendly staff, clean premises, a little bit hidden away from the main street but search it out. We'd be happy to visit again.

Cool place to stay while cycling. We saw it from the West Coast Wilderness trail as we came into Hokitika - it looked freshly painted and well maintained. Information Centre suggested we stay - so glad they did. This place is so clean, fresh, well thought out for guests. We had beer in the garden and nice meal in the pub. The pub seems to serve locals and has a nice feel. This accomodation shows great hospitality and I wish more were like this. Kitchenette was appreciated, as was lovely hot showers. Our bikes were stored safely. Highly recommend - reasonable priced . Our best stay on our trip.

This is a local pub a little off the main town area on Gibson quay but it was delightful. We were seated in a room off the main bar for our meal but we were well looked after. The staff were very friendly and delivered prompt service. Our entree of garlic bread was a good choice as was the chicken schnitzel served with chips and coleslaw. Our motelier recommended this pub and provided a voucher for 15% off our meals so not only was it a lovely meal but also inexpensive. The bar area was full of locals and had a nice vibe.
