We enjoyed our fish and chips dinner and drinks here. Live music by a reggae guy was awesome. Great atmosphere to have a mellow night over drinks. Cocktails are pricey though.More

Friendly staff, great beer and fun game nights make this a good place for a night out in Paihia. The bar food was tasty and vegetarian options available. The drag queen bingo was a hoot.

Great open style bar. but the draw back with this is most of the seating is outside under canopy which is a smoking area so you can't escape the smoke even if you are inside. Good Happy Hour which is actually 3 hours 4-7pm. Prices...More

We wanted a light meal and a beer to go with it. This bar serves very good burgers. Our chicken burger and beef burger were delicious. Juicy, and of the right size. The bar tender on request suggested an ale from hawkes bay. Good choice.

Wonderful place to go for a snack which is what we had. The place is quite nice but the staff is absolutely fantastic. He drew the beers for us and cooked the food and cleared the table too. Convenient with great kiwi hospitality.
