Typical pub grub - sports bar

Handy place to eat but basic pub grub. If you pick a busy evening you could have to wait for your food. Sports bar, so be prepared for tv screens all around. You can eat outside if the weather is good to escape them.

After 3 weeks travelling in NZ, and generally having good dining experiences, it came as a shock to find places like this still exist. Service was surly and appallingly slow (45 minutes wait for simple pub grub). When the food (fish and chips) arrived, the fish was poor quality and badly cooked, and the chips were soggy. The whole meal... More

That's my biggest complaint, cameras on the toilet, wrong, just wrong. I was intending on eating at 7 but this place was all that was open. $8 for a 440ml of speights is not a very funny joke, it's speights! Nothing special, and neither is the bar so 8$!? The food was OK, they were really run off their feet... More

We went with my boyfriend for dinner. First the waitress didnt take care of us, we had to ask her the menus. Then we ordered, I asked for.the type of teas they have because they weren't in the menu and she forgot to ask. The pizza.menu should have more variety, we had cranberry chicken pizza and was a weird flavour,... More

Food was average but the service was shocking. The owner was very rude when I asked to return the seafood chowder that came from a packet.

The pub is quite spacious and tastefully decorated with a log burning stove. The staff were very friendly and the serviced was excellent. The quality of food both in terms of choice and price was very good and decent portions. I would recommend a visit to this pub if passing.

Friendly and efficient staff, nothing was a problem. My steak was cooked exactly how I asked and our meals were presented lovely. Only complaint is that it's over priced for what it is compared to other restaurants and similar menus.
