Went here for an evening meal. Had to wait in the queue for half an hour before order could be placed. When tried to order our choice of meal - were told that they ran out. Order was placed for alternate meals. Order arrived fifteen...minutes late. The vegetarian burger was cold chicken buffalo wings didn't taste like buffalo wings at all.More

Great place to reward yourself with a drink after the crossing. Nice atmosphere with other travelers, service and food was friendly and fast. We had the chips with cheese and gravy (poutine) and spicy chicken wings, both very nice!

We had drinks and dinner here after doing the Tongariro crossing. The food was great value for money and very fast despite big groups dining in. Loved sitting outside on a mild evening enjoying a drink.

Was yummy as! Staff were welcoming and very helpful, we went in and 10 mins later the entire place was packed! Good music playing plenty to do. Everyone else was enjoying their food, they have so many options on the menu you just don't know...where to start their portions are huge. The Maori guy that served us was s awesome host.More

Great bar with a good range of beers and pub food. Recommend the BBQ ribs and toffee pudding. What set the experience apart for us was the friendly and switched on service which deals with a crowd well. Definitely worth the visit.

Owner is very rude to customers and if you dare to post a review he will reply with a very long explanation of how horrible a person you are He should spend more time sorting out his restaurant and less time writing replies to reviews....Rest of the staff are lovely. I would give this place zero stars if that was an option.More

Yes. There were children eating in the restaurant when we were there. It has a unique decor that I think children would like. FYI, the sticky date pudding is fantastic!
