“A great bar....”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 29, 2013

We only drank here so cannot comment on the food. There were 6 or 8 locals at the bar, they were welcoming but not over bearing. Nice place for a beer

“A poor choice; Unfriendly”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed October 28, 2013

In spite of its frequent mention in the guide books this proved to be a poor choice for a small place (National Park Village) with few options for visitors. The staff were unfriendly, the food unacceptable and the place lacked character.

“All Blacks Springboks Test night”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed September 16, 2013

Smoky fire with no ones tending it. Like being in a smokers public bar all over again Crowded with people eating and the setup to watch the test was marginal. Not enough screens cos the poles are in the way everywhere. Recommend the Ruapehu Lager off the tap in Glass jugs with cold glasses. Old School style and good value.
