“We love this place”
Reviewed January 1, 2013

This place always gives you a great meal and friendly service. We love Quizz night. More of a bar scene not for children after 5pm.

“great night”
Reviewed December 28, 2012

Food and drinks were great. The atmosphere of the restaurant was relaxng and fun. Employees were very helpful when I needed directions to the hotel prior to going there for a meal. That's what made us return for a meal.

“Variety”
Reviewed December 25, 2012

It was quite busy on the day we visited as there were a number of ladies celebrating Christmas. The wait staff were fabulous and efficient. The menu was varied and we could have chosen any of their dishes. In fact while we were waitng for our own lunch, I was hoping mine would be as delicious as all the others that were coming out of the kitchen. We were not disappointed with our choice.

“Good food and atmosphere”
Reviewed November 23, 2012

This pub has a great menu and is nicely located with views over the river in Gisborne. Only negative is that almost all the tables seem to be reserved even if you get there early.

“A great feed at a great price”
Reviewed November 1, 2012

Have had a couple of meals here in last month or so. The food is reasonably priced with mains priced between about $17 and $27. The service is fast and the food is delicious with good sized helpings.
Has a big screen tv in one corner along with a pool table. If you are after something quieter just sit at the other end of restaurant. Family friendly or great for the after dinner drink or staff get together. Located right beside Emerald Hotel on main shopping road (Gladstone Rd) in Gisborne
