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.

We chose this venue for a family catch up for a group of six. Saturday evening & the place was buzzing. The warm welcome on arrival was followed up with our drinks & food orders being taken promptly and with friendly interaction by the waiting...crew. The extensive menu of food options was appreciated as two of our group needed to avoid certain ingredients. This is a great place to go if you have an appetite for hearty fare at fair value for money and a friendly atmosphere.More

Sadly I must report that this was one of the worst gastropub I have ever been to. I ordered 2 sides, each $10 with tiny portions that you could eat within 3-4 mouthfuls. My husband’s “ smash burger” was similar to going to BurgerFuel except...BurgerFuel burgers are better and cheaper. I had to report to our bnb hosts that it was a disappointing meal or perhaps we expect high standards having travelled around the country and also overseas recently and are used to better fareMore

Really enjoyed our meals. Sauces expensive at $4 for a tiny portion & sides at $10. Super cool decor. Note to the waitress that it's really bad manners to start clearing the table when someone is still eating.

Enjoyed this range. Nice range of choices to order. I had the pancakes and fries. I loved how the pancakes had a coating of icing sugar. The pancakes were nice and warm and delicious to eat. Fries delicious too.

Great dinner and breakfast. The chicken burger with pineapple salsa was the best burger I’ve had in nz. My mum loved it too. For breakfast the pancakes were light and fluffy and the eggs Benedict was really nice. Good choice of beers too. Would definitely...recommendMore

Tried to make a booking for lunch for birthday celebrations for people coming up from Wellington. "We don't take bookings for less than 12 people. You may need to wait 45 min for a table when you get here".

Incredible flavours!! Impeccable service and chill and relaxed ambience. I had the Texas Cheese Steak Burger minus the peppers because I’m a whimp, the brisket OMG was so tasty with deep flavours and a little heat for good measure absolute star of the meal. Hubby...had the buttermilk Chicken his stand out was the inclusion of pineapple to loop all the flavours together. with takeaway expresso coffee and Buttercream Cake. We did NOT leave wanting more. Generous portions value for the price!! $80 total!! Staff were very friendly and efficient never hovering and understood cues well.More

Visited this restaurant for lunch - taco had over cooked mutton with a dry dressing and 1 or 2 pineapples! Limited menu. Last year there was tasty Korean chicken burger? Quality has declined.

Every few months or so we get together with another family and spend an evening here. Historically, it's been a good night but alas.. times have changed. Firstly.. you can't book a table unless there's 12 of you. As we're a paltry nine, we had...to take our chances even after pleading on the phone as one of our party is high needs ASD and uncertainty is traumatic for the poor little fella. I'd suggest management review this policy under social inclusion. And then the menu... It's shrunk! Been through the washing machine at least 8 times. If you're keto or vegetarian then you're going to struggle unless you want a heap of meat or the one salad on offer. There are no kids deserts.. nada, zilch and the only option as mentioned in another review is a $17 ice cream sundae. When you've got 3 kids in the party, $51 worth of ice cream is a massive barrier. Go back to the drawing board please and think like a customer and make some revisions. Until then, this diner is spending his money elsewhere.More

The meat is the star but the add ons are meh. Soggy chips and $17 for two scoops of ice cream a bit of sauce and a marshmallow on a tooth pick is ridiculous.
