Hearty meals and exceptional service for a pub. Great naki burger and best whitebait fritters this side of mokau. Very busy for Wednesday night quiz but that didn't impact on our dinner experience. In fact it looked like a good quiz.

Went here with a large group of family, easily accommodated (this is a large restaurant). A good range of food on the menu, and nice looking cakes in the cabinet! Staff were friendly and food was delivered in a timely matter.
