17 friends visited after a wonderful day together. We were booked in and arrived at 6.45. Eventually drink orders were take,then we ordered mains which arrived at 8.45. We had made it very clear that we didn't want nibbles as we had been served them on our river trip. They also knew we had to leave by bus at 9.15... More

We went to celebrate a friend's birthday. We regret going there. The menu was okay except one thing wasn't available. Out of seven of us two were happy with their meal. Most meals had some major disappointments, like curly fries going by the name of cowboy chips (which by the way were barely warm), The fish batter looked as if... More

Booked an outside table, WITH view and umbrella, when making our phone reservation for mid-summer Sunday lunch Angus Eatery has only one umbrella on the view side and this was already in use. Far too hot so had to retreat inside, a real pity on a glorious day. Given the UV protection required in NZ umbrellas are a basic necessity.... More

We went to Angus Rd Eatery just this evening... we knew Pumice group had taken over and had experienced the interim experience from the change from Woodbox to Angus Road... but we've had a hard week and wanted to treat ourselves. A not so good start was a staff member... More

The bar and its staff are the only good thing about this place now. Not the place I would like to return to in a hurry with my friends from Australia and New Zealand

We went along as part of our work Christmas function and everyone was disappointed! We ordered a selection a starters to share; calamari, chicken wings, pulled pork sliders etc and everything was completely tasteless! The mains were not much better. A few of us ordered the steak and there was inconsistent sizes across the table, mine was over cooked and... More

I have to admit that after reading some reviews we were a little dubious about eating here, but as the Woodbox had been one of our favourite restaurants, where many birthdays, anniversaries and special occasions had been celebrated, we decided that we would give it a try...and wow we were not dissapointed. The venison sliders were perfectly cooked, and the... More
