“Pork anyone”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 11, 2013

Chef was trying new menu items and we picked the pork. Well may I say it was the best I have ever tasted with a delicious jus. Our boys had the beef and steak and no complaints there. Wish we had had more time before our show for dessert. Definitely return there

“Fun, noisy and good for rugby!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed June 9, 2013

Great to have this crossbreed of pub/bar. Lots of screens for the rugby, nice wines and fun atmosphere. Lots of different spaces. Probably a good place to meet people - if ya get what I mean. Definitely one to go back to.

“Great food in a bar setting”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 11, 2013 via mobile

So we has a grabone voucher which was for $35 for Two Wakanui Grain Fed Sirloin Dinner Mains with Creamed Leeks, Hand-Cut Steak Fries & Red Wine Jus & Two Glasses of Kopiko Bay Pinot Noir. And can I just tell you how accurate the picture on the deal was for this but also how very delicious everything was- the sirloin cooked accdg to our liking, the fries were more like wedges (which was good as not a fan of fries) and when we asked for garlic aioli they gave us 1 each (no charge). We also ordered an entree of the steamed lip mussels for $14 which we just can't rave enough about! The mussels were of good succelent size & was served with tomato based sauce and there was at least more than 8 in 1 serving - highly recommended! Great food in this place which most people probably don't eat at as it has more of a bar/pub atmosphere which might put some off. Good thibg we tried and will definitely be back - evem if just for the mussels.

“Good music and food”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed May 10, 2013

We went on a Friday night and were entertained by the 'Beat Girls' i think. The barstaff were very smiley and looked like they were having fun. We went back the next day and had brunch and it was delicous. Staff were not overly attentive, which was a let down.
