Tasty food, lovely wines, great fruit. Worth checking out - especially in summer when the strawberry/raspberry season is in full swing

Food was bad and service was even worse. I made contact and have had absolutely no response over 6 months later.

Went in the exit which fooled those about to leave. This because the entrance, from the New Plymouth end, is concealed behind bushes (that is why 4 stars instead of 5). But hey this in NZ where the traffic behaves as if it were Asia...More
