I had high hopes of Brew bar due to its connection to Crouchers but it was pretty disappointing when we visited. Quite a few menu items were not available due to the Easter holidays (really ... every hotel and motel in Rotorua is fully booked and you couldn't figure you might get busy ??) including one of their own beers.
The food was average with the crackling on the pork being pretty impenetrable (as already commented by another reviewer) but most of the service was very pleasant.
