I had the small pork ribs which would have been a medium in a number of other restaurants. They were very tender and had a great sauce. My wife had a great seafood chowder and my parents a pasta with chicken and mushrooms and beef schnitzel which they both enjoyed. Good value for money and great service with an adequate... More

We only popped in here for an evening coffee, so can't comment on anything else, but my wife said it was the best decaf Americano she's had in New Zealand. Friendly barman/barista. Nice beer garden out back where we sipped and watched a salmon sunset sky.

Good food. Mixed service quality. We had fish of the day, chicken wrap and warm chocolate brownie. All the food was nice for the price. Atmosphere was your typical pub. So ok.

Me and my partner popped in after our day at the pools and got seated straight away by friendly staff. I don't enjoy spicy food but he was more than willing to ask the chef if it had more spice than I liked in it. He assured me it wasn't spicy and my meal ended up being delicious!! Great staff...

My partner and I visited here on our anniversary night, and everything was amazing! The "blushing russian" cocktail was so delicious I had to have a couple. I had the pasta with mushroom and spinach, the flavours and size of the dish was divine however perhaps the spinach could be a little less chunky. My partner had the pork ribs,... More
