Went for lunch with a group of overseas visitors who were in awe of the position on the beach and the view out over the water to Rangitoto. Seems we experienced 4 seasons in two hours with rain sweeping through one moment and sunshine the next. Made it very interesting. The buffet style lunch had a good variety of meat,... More

We were treated to lunch here by some good friends and I was delighted when I heard it was to be for McHughs. We came here for a wedding several years ago and it was great for that too. We aren't big eaters and usually can't do a buffet justice. However, I do feel that if the food is good... More

We had our daughters wedding there last Friday 24 February. What more can be said, awesome venue, food and location. The owners need to cherish James as he is very efficient in what he does and makes the organisation of the function run very smoothly. He has done so many functions it comes very natural. He gave us guidance during... More

We were 5 and a half for lunch to celebrate my sister in law's birthday. The half (age 3) was not charged. Buffet lunch was as already reviewed. In need of some punch. We suggest a carvery added to the mains and cream / ice cream be added to the dessert options. Fantastic view over sandy beach to Rangitoto Island.... More

McHughs has always been renown for its fabulous location and delicious buffet style food. We had my daughters wedding here several years ago and everyone love it including two relatives from Ohio. They were keen to revisit for a family reunion so I duly booked. What a disappointment this time. We had the Sunday buffet lunch and it was less... More

The room is just a large room but the windows look out on the bay on two sides. The buffet is good, though not... More
