Did not expect this, older pub but serving free range chicken and fresh fish. So you can imagine I was a little suspicious. No reason to be was seriously great and a huge selection of craft bier and local wine.

The Free Range chicken Parmigianino is my favourite dish, it really show the difference free range and chef care can do. Glad you enjoyed you visit. Cheers & Beers Jeremy Bayliss Managing Owner More

Great beer selection, service was very good, food was quite good (my husband had the burger asked for cheese, at an extra cost and couldn't really taste any cheese, I had the ribs that melted in your mouth, cooked really well but I found the sauce a bit sweet but that is just personal taste).

Best ribs in the world!, heaps of craft beer, the local Zeelandt was the best by far (available on tap even), friendly, helpful staff, prompt service, can't wait to go back.

The Ribs are seriously selling like crazy. My actual favourite is our Free Rage Chicken Parmigiana, this I think is the best in New Zealand!! Hope you will be back soon. The Zeelandt brewery is on the Napier Taupo road in and out of Napier from the North. Cheers & Beers Jeremy Bayliss More

Your right, very little happens in Napier after 8.30pm!! We are often serving food till 9pm as no where else is open - We love it. Fresh Food NOT fats food is our motto done in a simple Local bistro manner. Glad you understood. Cheers & Beers Jeremy Bayliss Managing Owner More

We went for a dinner with our 2,5 year old toddler and we loved it. Fabulous food, exceptional , super friendly service, family (toddler) friendly bistro. We have been given crayons and colouring book to entertain our toddler plus big box of toys was available. To top that off the children menu had healthy options and was very reasonably priced....
