We had dinner here on 2 nights whilst travelling around NZ. Both nights the food was of very high standards. The bar staff were very friendly at all times. Could not fault the service or food at this place. Thank you for this :)

This is our go-to pub if we feel like a Friday drink. Loooove the Kilkenny creamflow beer, very friendly and chatty staff. There’s usually a couple of platters of sausage rolls and sandwiches handed around to customers free/gratis. Great pub, great atmosphere, very welcoming.
