The Pongaroa hotel offers great country ambience. The staff are friendly and helpful. The hotel has lots of photos and information about the area. The meals are delicious and good value which makes the Pongaroa an ideal stop.

Went to the Pongaroa Pub for brunch as part of a family reunion and celebration of grand parents 100th wedding anniversary. We had 30 family members descend on the pub and the kitchen coped pretty well. Only grumble was over done bacon. The pub has great vib and friendly staff. Great wall of history of the town and area. This place is definitely worth going around all those corners on those windy Wairarapa roads.

As I was working in the area over two days this was the best option for lunch. Had a beef burger one day and the chicken burger on the other day. Hearty fare and very tasty. Greatcountry service by the friendly staff. Delicious fries too!

Happy with every aspect of our visit today - the 50-odd km (very twisty) ride out from Pahiatua offers some of the best scenery NZ has to offer, and we had worked up a decent appetite by the time we got there. Only a short wait for the food, which was lovely - my beef salad was delicious and hubby was equally happy with his steak/egg burger. Generous portions too. The staff are great - typical kiwi hospitality. Will try to visit again soon!
