I was visiting New Zealand and had dinner at the Westshore. I had the fish of the day which was really fresh and tasted great. The staff were so friendly and helpful. It had a nice country pub atmosphere and an amazing big screen to watch sport.

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).

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
