We perform checks on reviews.
Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

Been a couple of years since we dined here. Out team of friends have a monthly dinner at different venues. One couple had dined here lately a recommended it. It had certainly changed since I’d been there last. It didn’t have the customers it had in the past. The food however was very good, my eye fillet was cooked just how I like it and had heaps of vegetables and great sauce. The menu was smaller than it was but no one complained. Reasonable parking. Cosy seating. Good bar.

Meal tasted amazing - was the steak that was the issue - had to send steak back twice as was impossible to eat, a chainsaw wouldn’t have worked either. Staff said meat was bad from butcher and acknowledged this wasn’t normal. Still had to pay half the meal as I ate the chips and salad… and an expensive chips and salad that turned out to be. Would we go back yes, hubbys meal was great. Just annoyed at how they handled my meal. Went for dinner and paid for an overpriced snack.

Food was ok, but don't go if you want to stay after 830pm, staff come around calling last drinks at 830, as it appears they want to knock off early. Still plenty of customers there

Takeout to support local cafe was with covid disappointment. Our large Pizzas were $22 each and very sad. Not s good as previously. And apparently the menu no longer has the seafood Reefer pizza..... So our online menu was not the correct menu and an old one !! Sorry thumbs down for pizza.

Disappointing attitude and treatment from bar staff. My 22 year old nephew was treated appallingly yesterday while in the restaurant. 3 days earlier he was granted entry with a valid Australian licence. But yesterday he was told it was not a valid form of ID. Thats ok but what happened next was unnecessary. The 22 was sitting in the restaurant while my brother went to see mum to ask about lunch. Tbe staff member went rushing in to say he couldn't leave his 22 year old unattended??? Wow. She was rude then had a go at my mother. I frequent this place weekly. Now i need a new friendly place to go. Alot to lose from bad servicing.

Visited for lunch Queens Birthday Sunday Was raining cats and DOGS but honestly didnt order DOG HAIR in my Chicken Schnitzel either but alas I got a LONG DOGHAIR entwined in my fries ..YUKKK!!! When raised with an older mature woman on duty there was NO APOLOGY or any regard to my health concern or DOGHAIR COMPLAINT. We were charged 106$ for 2 when we left .. NO APOLOGY NO DISCOUNT NEEDLESS to say ...NO RECOMMENDATIONS from me!! Bad service .. Bad food hygiene Bad customer service Bad hygiene habits in kitchen!! Leave your dogs hair at home chef and staff And take your A game to work from mow on ..I'm sure Anyone else who ever got the worse luck to have a long DOGHAIR slopped up in your food would never accept this or go back to this business again!! NOT WORTH patronizing or giving your hard earned $$ to this unhygienic establishment! Better off driving to PukeKohe for food not this place!!

It’s just a pub in a semi small village serving pub food. Menu options are what you could expect and the food is nice and tasty. It’s not 5 star and it’s doesn’t need to be. I live local and even when we not stopping in they always seem busy so they must be doing something right.

Had a Sunday lunch today and was impressed with the service and food. The staff were attentive, quick to bring the drinks and take our order. When it arrived we were amazed at the generous portions and the food went down well. For a village pub / cafe they don't come much better.

Had a game of golf nearby, so we called here quite late in the day; on the off-chance of a nice meal. The waiting staff were friendly and the meals amazing. Scallops and bacon for entree. Snapper & chips plus surf n turf. Really good!

Terrible food rude manager. Not recommended! Meals were not up to restaurant quality and no apologies given. Guests were not made to feel welcome and this place does not show professional standards when customers complain about genuine concerns. The manager was rude and arrogant. But it is a very nice little town and a nice setting. Been here before under different management . It used to be a very impressive restaurant bar. Needs a lot of improvement in customer service skills by management.
