I love this little pub. There are a range of craft beers if that's what you're into. Personally, I like their delicious little meals. A nice little hub set in "Eat Street" which has lots of other little restaurants in its vicinity.

I had the chicken sandwich that literally was one of the best sandwiches I've ever had, incorporating all my favorite things -- fried chicken, bacon, cheese, jalapeños, and coleslaw! I downed it quickly, along with two Volcanic APA beers. Outstanding!

We had an hour for lunch between Rotorua tours. Beer was excellent and I was thrilled to see they offer a gluten free pizza base. It was awesome. Would definitely go back.
