For those who want to try a real ale, this is a great place to try. Quite how they produce so much food from that small kitchen is almost Hogwarts like! The ale was great, the décor different, open the fridge door to head to the loo! The staff were friendly and the atmosphere very communal. A great place to... More

What a fun last night. Got to drink mischievous kea and sat at communal area and met some great people. Fun atmosphere, surprisingly good food (because it is more about the beer than the food usually) but really good time!

Definitely worth stopping in here if you like craft beer. The food is good too. It can get pretty full during peak hours, but get a seat at the window if you can. Makes for some great people-watching!

Fantastic atmosphere, great beer, awesome vibe and staff. The food menu is small and for good reason.... They do everything top notch! The steak here is a must but all of the rest of the food is awesome too. Throw into the mix that the bar heavily supports the mountain bike community and you are onto a winner!

As a craft beer enthusiast in search of New Zealand brews, I was directed here. The place itself is pretty small. The tap list is small as well, and dominated by Emerson's Brewing Company...unfortunately, that brewery's beers are nothing to write home about in my opinion. They did have a couple options from Altitude, which were pretty solid. I didn't... More
