This place is always warm. The staff are efficient and friendly. The food is typical pub food and there is plenty of room for lots of patrons. There are TV's placed about so that one can keep up with the sporting events. A quick tummy filler is always guaranteed here or enjoyable night out with mates for drinks and food.

A group of us booked a table to watch the rugby test. Staff were very helpful. It is a pub so my expectations were not huge, however the food was great, despite it being quite a busy night it was prepared very quickly and the portions were generous. There is a fire for cold nights which this was and plenty... More

We were here for dinner about 18 months ago and had a good night so decided to come back and see how it was. If anything it was better than last time. Loved the atmosphere, the food was great (huge plates of tasty ribs, sizzling steak and yummy pasta) and the service was quick. Oh, and the cheeky barman was... More

Good choice if you want an uncomplicated, value for money meal. Coped well with the 16 people in our party and meals arrived quickly. Popular with the teenagers with us.

After a long day at the kapa haka, with a hungry, tangitangi 2 year old, approaching 7pm and the previous 3 places we'd checked out all full, we happened upon the shed.

Was staying at a nearby hotel for a conference and we popped out to the shed twice for their $10 lunch. Was a nice salad with a choice of calamari, beef or lamb on top. Very nice
