The food was pretty good. Had a pub feel to it. The music choice on the night we were there was a bit melancholy but the bar is full of memorabilia and stories. Good for a budget night.

We stopped here to eat when we arrived in Matamata. Nice place to sit and a friendly staff. The food was great, we had pizzas. Could have ever better selection of beer, but that's the only thing I would improve. They have pints!
