“Great pub, nice friendly staff”
Reviewed May 21, 2013

Had a very nice meal and a couple of drinkies, the owner and his wife were lovely and helped us on where to go for a good look around Rotorua . We stayed at the top ten park with our motor home and the bar was only a km or so for a good evenings stroll. I would totally recommend you pop in and have a nice meal.!

“Mixed feelings”
Reviewed April 28, 2013

We've been to this bar on quite a few occasions, and have always enjoyed the food and the atmosphere (I'm surprised at myself not doing a review sooner!) The service is good, the choice of drinks is great and we love the atmosphere of the place. Sadly on this occasion the food was lacking and I've been thinking about how it seems that the portions have become larger but the food has started to lack the attention that it deserves. Shame really, but it's true that size isn't everything.

“Nice and friendly”
Reviewed April 16, 2013

Nice, relaxed atmosphere..the steak sandwich is a winner! Dined out with my husband and found that the beers were cold, and the food was quickly delivered to us. The dining area is comfortable and warm. My husband has never had lamb shanks quite like the dish he had here, was a real mans dish!! Decent sized meals (we definately didn't walk out hungry!)
