Great woodfired Pizza. Good indoor and outdoor rustic appeal. A nice craft beer on tap, a reasonable range of local wines (like made within 10 kms).

Best pub we visited in NZ (we're from the UK). Friendly staff, great food and perfect location.Seemed like a good mixture of locals and visitors and no tourist hordes.
