We went for a family lunch. The cider was nice but very over priced. The food was just average. The girl whe delivered the cider about 5 glasses worth had no idea which was which. When paying the bill the server had no idea about the tables. All and all a ok visit.

Pulled off the Auckland highway on spec. Didn't eat so can't comment on food.
Wasn't offered tasting so tried their standard cider which was good - crisp, clean dry with fruit without being sweet.
Not much to see or do.

Met friends for afternoon cider sampling and nibbles. Food was basic but all the dishes we tried were tasty. Cider was goooood. We started with sampling paddles then all enjoyed our favourites in bigger glasses! Staff were all outstanding. Brilliant system of pressing a (silent to us!?)buzzer on our table, and the staff came running always with a smile Kitchen closes at 5pm but they happily prepared us a cheese board at 5.30 - thank you

We enjoyed the range of ciders but were most disappointed with the food. We saw people with huge platters for $48 so it looked good. We ordered the fresh fish fillets $15 and the duck confit $22 and were assured by the woman that they were meals. The 3 pieces of heavily battered greasy fish arrived on a bed of lettuce, no chips or real salad. The duck leg arrived on a similar lettuce bed with an orange dressing. The crispy duck skin had unappetising ends of feathers still there. There was no way they were a meal which we wanted. They were more tapis as the manager explained later "you need to order more than one each". Order the platters for a meal otherwise you will be disappointed. It is a long way to locate this cidery so we would recommend you don't bother. Service was patchy!

Our group ended up at the cider factory for lunch. Well I was pleasantly surprised....friendly staff , good selection of ciders and a menu which was worth a try.
We ordered the two platter trays as there were 8 of us and we were able to try a bit of each dish. There was enough food for us...very tasty and nice to sample a little of each dish.
A very pleasant 2 and half hours spent...was quite full so booking is a good idea.
Well worth a return trip.
