Pork belly very poor and skin and crackle leathery and meat very stringy. Downstairs and dining room great ambience and obviously effort and thought gone into decorating. Certainly go back socially for a drink but not a meal.

The non-alcoholic cocktail with melon and mint tasted fantastic to. The bar area was nicely decorated and warm. Staff made us feel very welcome and provided great service...would definitely... More

came here after Ms. white in the White Hart courtyard closed, had just gotten in to town and wanted some snacks....this was recommended by the bartender at Ms. White. Very cool classic bar, totally decent service. We got 3 orders of popcorn chicken which was very good and a massive order of fries, which were terrific. 4 beers between us.... More

This bar/restaurant is seen as one of the better ones in town but if you're a North American coming here you will be disappointed. The owner operator has experience in Canada but does not apply what she learnt in their own business. Exocet no service and a $24 burger. Only thing they have going for them is a bunch of... More

Cannot fault the waitress, she was most excellent, problem was the cheese sauce on the broccoli & cauliflower side had no cheese, was like they had placed a shaving of cheese on the vegetables and poured white sauce on top. The garlic butter sauce had no garlic and the ovation Hawkes Bay lamb rump was like chewing on a rope.... More

I loved the fact there's a really busy pub downstairs and the restaurant above is much more laid back with a bit of music playing. Excellent food and attentive service made it great. I recommend the brussel sprout dish and the fish tacos. Great combination.

All the items on the menu is good, but the lamp rump is especially good and something I would go back for. The barmen is really great, with a good selection of beers.
