We visited this restaurant in April 2015, on a Saturday evening. We sat close to the large fireplace, and kept very warm. We both enjoyed the seafood chowder, and could have gone back for seconds. Very tasty, and served with crusty bread. My only dissapointment was that there was no music, either live or even back ground music. This place... More

A great decor made this English/Irish themed pub cosy whilst having a beer and lunch. They have a tremendous selection of beers both local and UK. A nice selection of local wines added to the lunch. Good service by friendly staff. The Seafood chowder was wonderful. We will return.

I've been eating here for years. It's the one place my Nan likes to go to! The food is on point. I like coming in the winter, it's nice and warm inside and there are a lot of home styled meals to choose from.

The Rose & Shamrock is decidedly English in appearance. 1970s English. Dark furniture and patterned carpet make for a dim interior. There's a small private l courtyard outside if you fancy braving the smokers who have to suffer their addiction out there. Tables on the street side otherwise. Good selection of beers, well kept, including some good English import bitters... More

A great place, excellent value for money & the food is always fresh. Portions are HUGE but they do offer 'small' plate size too. Great atmosphere, always well patronised and suits couples, groups, family outings.

This isn't a gourmet restaurant, there are plenty of other Hawke's bay wineries and other establishments that tick that box.. BUT.. this is a close as you'll get to an English/irish pub that has been magically transported to the Southern hemisphere. The staff are friendly and helpful, the drinks selection is huge, and central to any good pub, they know... More

Love this place for an afternoon catch up. The tables outside are great for people watching. I rate the pleasantness and attention to detail the staff have. Always child friendly. Nice and casual, yet professional!

This place has a great atmosphere and great 'pub food'. It is very popular, yet intimate seating. Large blackboard menu and reasonably priced. They also have a HUGE range of beers on tap and a very good wine list featuring local wines. The kitchen is open until 9.30 if you arrive in the village late and the staff are friendly... More

Ever changing menu, large, small & childrens portions, all very generous. Huge drinks list both alcoholic & non, staff who smile at you & treat you as a friend, plenty of parking. Decor is Irish of course but tasteful. All price are very competitive. The butter chicken was to die for.
