Warm and cosy

Dined here last week, it was a very cold night but was lovely and warm in Brew Moon café with the fire on plus extra heaters positioned around the dining room. Service was friendly and prompt. Ordered a gluten free garlic bread to start with which was a lovely treat. Had the chicken nachos for... read more

Very rustic atmosphere and mainly pleasant staff. Was a very cold day when we visited and although the fire was alight we found it quite chilly. The food was very nice, seafood chowder especially tasty but we waited some time to have our meal arrive and because the room was cold it wasn't a pleasant wait. Would go back but... More

Not a good look for 11am on a Saturday!! Freezing cold day with no fire on and a nearly empty cabinet!! Staff informed us they were working on filling the cabinet but for the time we were there they were all in the kitchen just chatting and no more food was being displayed!! This is the 3rd time we have... More

We visited on a Friday morning and food cabinet not stocked up, so resorted to Menu which for that time of day was limiting. We ordered sausage roll and eggs benedict. The lovely lady serving was rushed off her feet, and only one kitchen staff on. Obviously they hadn't catered for being busy. We ordered and it was cooked to... More

Very spacious restaurant. There were seven in our group and I had booked via their website earlier in the morning which turned out to be a good idea. The grandchildren enjoyed their meals and assortment of drinks. The adults had no complaints with their meals. It was a busy Easter Sunday and all the meals arrived at the table in... More

The beers produced here are a little different to the mainstream NZ offering, and are well worthwhile trying. They tend to be a little fuller in flavour and hoppier than many, but sit nicely on the palate, particularly with food, of which there is plenty, and of a good standard.

Stopped for a brunch while on the road. We both chose their full breakfast, it took its time arriving but that meant everything was cooked from scratch so no complaints. 'Two poached eggs, mushrooms, sausage, toast, new potatoes and spinach (!?!)' Washed down with black coffee and green tea. Pleasant service at an average price.

Firstly good to find somewhere open all day on Sunday - so many NZ cafes shut at 4pm. The café/micro brewery is on highway 1, a bit quirky, with a good range of beers - available for $4 for a selection of four tasting plate. The food was good - not great choices but the seafood chowder was really good... More

We stopped for a meal enroute with our two children, aged 6 and 9, and were so pleased we did. We were able to sit outside under a covered area and appreciated the shade. The food was excellent and great value. The kids thoroughly enjoyed the kids platters which we couldn't recommend more highly. Service was great - very friendly... More

We stopped here for lunch and was glad that we did. It's a nice cafe which brews it's own beer so lots of options. There is indoor seating, outdoor marquee seating and then an assortment of outside tables if you fancy sitting outside. The service was really quick and the food was outstanding. I highly recommend the corn fritters. Will... More
