Nothing special but great specials!

We just went to the good home for some beers after a long day hiking. Good deals for beers and food and nice outside area to sit. Nothing too special but also something where you would definitely spent your evening with friends!

I'm pleased you enjoyed The Good Home, we do try hard to make everyone's visit a enjoyable one, you can't beat a great Taranaki Day, siting on either of our 2 outside areas, looking at the river or in the shade of the lane. Having a cold beer! More

Open sensible hours even Monday with real solid fresh tasty food cooked perfectly. Good size portions at good prices. Friendly professional staff (rare in NZ); good wine; large range of seating options inside and out. Plainly popular with locals.

A cheap and cheerful option in Taranaki. A good large menu with plenty of options at an affordable price. Plenty of space so you don't feel on top of each other and the staff are very lovely and hospitable.

Ravenous after travelling, ordered a Lamb Burger 19.95 at The Good Home. Received a small dinner bun with lamb, roasted capsicum and rocket and a whole plate full of fries. I figured if you removed the $3.95 worth of fries (which I promptly returned to the kitchen) I paid $16 for the smallest burger I have ever been sold. We... More
