Description: A Napier institution right in the heart of Napier has loads of character and is a great place to meet your friends, start your night out or linger over a meal matched with our best range of beers and our fine selection of wines including many local wines. Our menu is a fusion of Kiwi-Irish, well priced and we are well positioned in Hastings Street amongst the major central city shops and hotels, including our own Art Deco Masonic Hotel. The Rose appeals to a broad range of people, young and young at heart, locals and tourists, families, kiwis and international visitors.

“Great Batter!,,”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 27, 2014

Excellent choice for a pint and some seriously good pub grub.
Staff extremely welcoming and service fast and friendly.Recommended fish and chips and we were NOT disappointed. Probably one of the best batters on a piece of fish ever ----- and we have had a lot of fine fish and chips , Britain, Ireland, Canada , etc.
And finally sensible food portions in New Zealand ----- just the right amount, not a plate for a whole town of people!!!!!!, and at a great price as well.

“An authentic pub--great atmosphere, great architecture, and great beer!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 25, 2014

The place was lively and welcoming, and we found seats at the bar, where we quickly and easily struck up a conversation with the couple next to us who wanted to watch the Australian Open on tv. The staff was accommodating and friendly, facing down cricket fans who had other preferences in mind. We loved it!
