I ordered the venison back scrap. It was cooked to perfection, medium rare and delicious. Servers were well-spoken, versed and fun to interact with. Highly recommended.

Great range of craft beers on offer, on the pricey side but pretty standard for Napier. Front deck was good for sun catching and people watching. The inside was strangely spacious. Worth a look in for the beer offerings.
