Went there on Saturday with friends from Hawera. Waitress could hardly speak english and didnt speak up. Entree of bread and dips was a good try but just strange pureed stuff. My 'buffalo'wings were just normal size and I asked for chilli which was non existant. Other dinners were just ok with the best being a lamb dish-cooked to perfection.

We hired out part of the The Good Home for a Gatsby themed murder mystery night as part of our work conference and it was great. It was awesome that the staff got into the spirit and all dressed up in Gatsby themed costumes as well - the food was excellent and everyone had so much fun - thanks to... More

Went for dinner here with a few friends, the friends from Auckland had their dog therefore we sat outside under the heater which wasn't to bad. The staff were kind enough to give something to the dog. We order a couple of pizzas as a main with chips but the chips came out with the starter. The cocktail was weak... More

I have dined here several times with family & I love the duck spring rolls & the stone grill.The large stone grill comes with coleslaw & chunky potatoes & the small grill just comes with coleslaw which is plenty but you can ordered a mixed grill, beef, chicken or lamb. All value for money to me & pretty yummy.

We really feel this place has the potential to be a great establishment. The interior is fabulous with numerous indoor & outdoor seating areas to allow for a wide range of clientele needs. I was dining with my kids & it was suggested by the waitress that we sit at a bench table outside of the main dining room &... More

I happened along this restaurant because it was Easter weekend and one of the few places not charging a 15% holiday tax. I was very pleased with the experience! Friendly staff and even better food. You order at the bar and then they bring your food out to you. I paid $18 (NZD) for a huge pile of chicken wings,... More

The resturant is nice and clean with lots of out door seating. Didnt find the indoor seating comfortable. Food was nice enough but small. I had the pumpkin and ricotta bake and although it was nice enough, it was way over priced for what it was. I had heard good things about the place but I was left disappointed.
