This Pub is a good place to enjoy a Steak dinner and plenty of on-tap beer. The menu has a good choice of food to satisfy most needs. I recommend this Pub to go to for a meal when you are in Napier Cheers CB

We visited here for a cooling beer having walked around the town exploring. The choice of beers and ales suited my husband very well. However, the music was very loud, heavy rock style and there seemed to be quite a few folk who had been drinking heavily. Probably more appealing to a younger crowd than us!

Part of the Art Deco Masonic Hotel, we enjoyed a nice evening meal here. We also sheltered here from the rain prior to booking into said hotel for a cuppa and no-one rushed us. Lovely.

This pub has a pool table which is it's main attraction. It is also open at night. Food is Average to good but service is pretty pathetic. The right owner and staff could do a lot with this place!

A Napier institution right in the heart of Napier has loads of character and is a great place to meet your friends, start your night out or linger over a meal matched with our best range of beers and our fine selection of wines including many local wines. Our menu is a fusion of Kiwi-Irish, well priced and we are well positioned in Hastings Street amongst the major central city shops and hotels, including our own Art Deco Masonic Hotel. The Rose appeals to a broad range of people, young and young at heart, locals and tourists, families, kiwis and international visitors.
