An hour later; we only ordered the house fish and chips; we got two small pieces of fish and some skin on chips, with a salad; a small soup like bowl of coleslaw that had... More

We went on a Saturday... early afternoon - about 1ish...after the 'lunch rush' if there was one. The place is easy to find, I think it used to be an old pub - just across from the town side of the City Centre Mall carpark area. There were plenty of seats available, inside and out, and there were a couple... More

Lots of different 'rooms' to suit your tastes - whether that's a more formal table or a relaxed bar leaner, al fresco or more contemporary - lots of space. Menu is decent with a range of great bistro style meals.

Nice looking place but Average food that's far too expensive. Would not go back again and would not reccomend.

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
