Popped in for a drink last night. There was a fight playing so the bar was very full and we were amazed at how thick the smoke was in the bar. I understand they can't control customers leaving the doors open but we watched multiple...More

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.

Another return visit and the customer service was outstanding. Service was prompt and the servers were efficient and had a sense of humor. Our meals were delightful and piping hot.

Best place to watch live sport in New Plymouth. Nice big bar. However the service I got from staff was poor and the steak meal I received was not the pricetag. Hopefully a one off as it is a good bar.More

Hi Kane, Thanks for you review, it's great that you like the bar and enjoyed watching sport here. I apologize for the the service not being satisfactory and wonder if you can let me know which meal you didn't think matched its price? I'm sure...More
