Comfort food with style!

It's been about three years since I was last at Frederic'sand this return visit was well worth the effort. With a menu offering a wide range of contemporary New Zealand fare complemented by a good range of craft beers and an okay selection of wines, each of our group of four found something to... read more

Instead of lunchtime burgers which we've had on previous visits through New Plymouth we opted for the meal at night. The food was excellent. While it was a busy night with the show on closeby and the skating rink open things started to go wrong with the service from the moment of entering the bar. One of the group is... More

The staff, the craft beers and the food were all excellent. The sticky ribs were some of the best I've ever had. The atmosphere was warm, the decor and designs were fun and welcoming. We only came in as we had left a lousy pub down the road called Peggy Gordon's because of very rude and incompetent staff. They did... More

The ambiance, service and food were beautiful. It has a sports bar at the bottom and a very private, romantic dining room on the top floor. The staff was attentive and food was perfectly cooked and presented. My only problem was that it only served one vegetarian dish.

This place was recommended by staff at Pukeariki. It didn't disapoint. We arrived at around 2.30pm on a wet Saturday and were warmly welcomed. We then went onto have incredible burgers. The staff made us feel like regulars and there was such a lovely relaxed vibe here.

My partner and I came for lunch and it was amazing even when the ordering machine broke down and we had to wait a little longer we were offered a free drink as an apology and I'm glad we stayed! Best food in town for sure!
