Open from 4pm Wednesday, Friday and Saturday (meals from 6pm). This popular spot is somewhat of a hidden gem. The food is very good and made to order. Indoor and outdoor seating available. Order food on arrival as the wait can be long. Food was...great as was the friendly island bar service. We visited twice and will be back the next time we are in the Island. Thank youMore

Had dinner here on a Saturday night ( seems they only open 3 nights a week ). I had a Thai style seafood chowder which was full of seafood and my husband had bear battered fish which was really good. I did see the steaks...coming out and they looked large and juicy. Pricing was pretty good and we were able to sit outside and listen to bird song. Great night.More

The atmosphere, the food and entertainment everything was a stand out here. Meals came out quick and cooked to perfection, nothing was left on our plates. Kit and Becks were awesome hosts so much so we are going back again today before we fly out!...If your looking for a way to unwind after a day of sightseeing this is the place to go.More

They were very busy but still arranged a suitable time. Great feed at a great price. All the staff were helpful and friendly and the local club members inviting.

We wandered up the hill to the club on a Sunday night but left it a bit late and the kitchen had just closed - our fault for already being on island time. Looked like good basic food such as fish and chips. Locally brewed...beers. Friendly bar staff. Nice views from the deck. The inside has the feel of a 1960's social club but that's part of it's charm. I shouldn't think its easy to make a profit here so give it your support and enjoy the experience if you are a visitor.More

Visited twice, good meals both times. Popular with locals - a good taste of local life. A few different theme nights during the week, quiz nights, movie nights etc. Wasn't open every day when we were there. I'm sure it has longer hours during summer.

Visited the Social Club with my 2 teen sons after walking the Aotea Track. Was craving fish and chips which didn't disappoint but the highlight was the band Knights of the Dub Table who rocked the place for young and old
