Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.
Learn more about our review moderation.

Great all round pub, whether just for a quick drink or meal, different to the mundane norm and most materials reclaimed from the earthquake

Really great food and atmosphere, staff are friendly and make you feel welcome. A little expensive, but would still go again. Thank you the Nelsen family.

Driving through and the place is more of a restaurant than pub and quite modern but quirky. Staff all attentive and quick service. Own brew beer was good and meals served Fish and chips was wholesome and filling. The cheesy patty burger wad a little...tough and bun slightly overcooked.More

We drove around the hills in an amazing sports car and stopped at this place for lunch. The staff were very friendly and service was prompt. The quinoa salad and hamburger and fries were both delicious. The atmosphere was warm andfriendly. Certainly a great place...for summer time lunch.More

Young staff were amazing but as for the manger he has no people skills, rude and obnoxious towards us. Would never return. Basically chucked the pizza on the table and walked away. Kids meals - chip were undercooked, but didn’t won’t to complain due to...the manger being so rude to me Because I took my drink back, as I ordered a vodka soda and he made a vodka lemonade. Telling me that’s what I ordered when I absolutely did not! Your poor staff having to deal with him!More

We are locals, and my partner has a number of specific dietary needs including gluten intolerance.. the staff are fabulous, the 'maitre d' (is that the correct title these days?) is always friendly and goes out of his way to make us feel special (as...we see him do with everyone with whom we see him interact).. so friendly/welcoming .. it's one of our fave places to eat, to meet, or just to have a quiet drink. Great range of beers too.More

We had a farewell lunch for one of my colleagues and we were ordering off the set menu. As the set menu didn't cater for a lot of dietary requirements some of our group tried to order off the normal menu but the man insisted...on us eating off the set menu. One of our party was celiac and they refused to serve her despite the menu clearly saying there were gluten free options. The man who I assume was the owner was incredibly rude throughout and the food was quite good but exceedingly expensive for the small amount of food. Would not recommend.More

The service was great, the beer was spectacular, and I had the best ribs of my life. The building is made of recycles materials and has tonnes of character. Really well done.

We came in late, without a booking and the restaurant was really accommodating. They found us a table and served us straight away. Water was served and we were underway. In hindsight I'd recommend booking as they were busy for a Friday night, however the...service was maintained to a high standard. The pizzas were fantastic and the variety of beer and cider was a bonus. Really happy and would gladly go there again.More

Visited a few times over the years, its one of my favorites! The staff have always been very welcoming and the pub has a great relaxed vibe to it. With a kid friendly outdoor area, its great to sit have a few pints while the...kids play. Alternatively, leave them home and sit and soak up the atmosphere inside with a beer brewed onsite. Top notch experience. CheersMore
