What a great find! We were so fortunate to find this amazing pub. All staff were incredibly friendly and welcoming. There is a great selection of craft beers which we thoroughly enjoyed. The Sunday steak special was brilliant, and live music too, on Saturday evening....All good and definitely to be recommended.More

Went here and had a beer... Hawkes bay... It was pretty flat. Didn't enjoy the music... Don't think anyone else did either. The food was pretty much bar food. We left. It has been better in the past!!

Went in for quick feed before movie and had a pulled pork burger. Thought I bit into a bone but the pulled pork was littered with perfectly crisp crackling. Best burger ever. Order all the sauces for the fries. Epic.

Monday night is seafood night and the seafood platter for two is so good! A great selection of beverages including NZ wines and craft beers. This place hosts some great events including well known NZ music and comedy performers. Check out their Facebook to see...what’s on. Definitely a place for a good night out!More
