About
A small boutique brewery below the radar. We don't pretend to be anything fabulous just a little eatery located in a beautiful part of the world. We make all our food fresh daily and although the menu is limited it is cooked especially for you. The beers and cider and Jakes Gin are all made in the same building and if you are lucky you can chat with the brewer whilst he is working! look out for Max the Jack Russell the bar maxscot!

We called in for a drink and a snack as staying at hot water beach. Staff were really friendly and helpful. I saw wings on someone's plate so we got some. The sauce was a bit sour but nice and spicy. Their in house cider...was pretty good. It was just a shame it was an overcast day as a good venue for an afternoon sessionMore

Went here on Mothers day expecting it to be busy but almost had the place to ourselves. The beer was enjoyed and he had the ribs which went down ok, I had the Quesidillas which were very nice. To much for me in a sitting...so got a doggy bag and had the next day for morning tea, tasted pretty good cold too.More

More or less your average bar/restaurant food. Nothing special. Does have a fair few beer choices but we are not big on it to comment on that.

Came here two nights running due to awesome service and hot chips were literally ten out of ten. Great atmosphere and exceptional service! Happily cater to gluten free too. Can’t fault it.

Really great vibe, fantastic outside seating area that made it pleasant for the kids to enjoy the surroundings. Drinks were fab, fresh tasting and vibrant texture. All the staff were lovely, extremely helpful and polite. It’s a shame this place isn’t closer to home as...we’d be in there all the time! Definitely recommend this place!More

The Restaurant and atmosphere were great. Unfortunately my meal was not. I was looking forward to it, even googled the menu in advance. Ordered the Kelp crumbed fish and salad. Unfortunately, it was so disappointing, the fish was tasteless as were the chips, no flavour...at all and a handful of rocket. For $27 I had expected more. I actually had the same meal at home the night before that I prepared which was way more enjoyable for quarter of the price.More

oh dear... not a good visit. Did you speak to the staff to tell them you were not happy?

We visited here 3 times while on holiday last week. We love craft beer and the beer here is good and there is a good variety made on-site. The ‘Spice Control to Major Pomme’ cider was really nice - it would be great with a...cheese platter. My favourite was the ‘Haheizy Days’. The pizzas are also very good. Unfortunately the fish and chips - both the beer battered and the pan fried options - were average and disappointing for us on our last day of holiday. The beer batter my partner had was oily and the pan fried fish I had was tasteless. I would have given a higher score if the fish and chips had been good.More

Beer batter is fried therfore often oily. The pan fried fish coated with a local macadamia crumb made here in Hahei is much drier. It is 100% macadamia and kelp so it shouldnt be tasteless. Maybe next time have a friendly chat with the managers...More
