We came to Napier in Feb. and they were having an art deco festival, Lots of old cars, people dressed period clothes from the late 20's and 30's. ANYWAY, the pub was good. The beer was cold and the food was great!!!

A Napier institution right in the heart of Napier has loads of character and is a great place to meet your friends, start your night out or linger over a meal matched with our best range of beers and our fine selection of wines including many local wines. Our menu is a fusion of Kiwi-Irish, well priced and we are well positioned in Hastings Street amongst the major central city shops and hotels, including our own Art Deco Masonic Hotel. The Rose appeals to a broad range of people, young and young at heart, locals and tourists, families, kiwis and international visitors.
