Great little country tavern. Good hearty food to satisfy any kiwi bloke and his family. Entertainment and quiz nights make for some fun.

The Pioneer in Waipapa is a great place to relax, play some pool and have a bite to eat. Quiz nights are entertaining and well run, and are something a bit different to do on a Wednesday night. Welcoming and friendly staff top it off.
Thanks Debbie, hope to see you at a few more quiz nights in the future!
