Where the Locals Go!

Brew has got it: warm atmosphere, great beers on tap, a nice wine list AND a delightful food menu! There's even a kid's menu, so don't be put off by the crowded bar as you walk in -- continue to the table seating at the rear. We dined here two nights in a row, eating Fish n Chips, salads, steaks,... read more

I have been to this pub a few times now and find it different every time. The beer is really good and the food is pretty good too.

We had two birthdays for family members here and we enjoyed our experience both times. We were warned when we came into the restaurant that there was a wait and the staff kept coming to make sure we were alright. Fantastic food and fantastic service!!

Visited with a work group for a relaxing meal. Sat at s large table inside (our choice) and were very well looked after. Waitress well versed in the craft beers and helped our choices.

We were looking for simple fare and interesting beer so we tried this restaurant. We enjoyed a seafood platter and a bowl of chunky fries. The service was fast and good and the beer tasty.

The Croucher range of beers would be enough to see us return. The service was spot on, and the food was satisfying. Loved the new Croucher IPA!

We recently spent a pleaseant evening here. The staff were knowledgeable and helpful when enquiring about the local beers. They also were very friendly. We chose to eat here as well and the food was of a good standard, I would class it as pub grub well done. We sampled the fish and chips with mushy peas and also the... More

Stopped off during a walking tour of Rotorua. Staff very friendly and attentive offering good advice. Situated in the Eat street area amongst many other bars and restaurants. Craft beer included local brews and very enjoyable. Host had a great helpful attitude, well worth a stop to watch the world go by.
