After a few games of pool we had a meal in the bar area and the food was good without being outstanding. Whist they may be a few staff short the staff on deck were exceptionally professional. Would definitely recommend.

We were late getting to the Kurious Kiwi but they serve right through to 10pm (which is a definite plus if you're late heading out).

The service friendly, if a bit slow, but the food was good, pub-style. We had Kiwi burgers, which were tasty and I recommend (they were huge!). Our daughter had chicken strips, which came out the same as everywhere in the world.

Not a bad option if you're stuck late in the evening.

Turned up for a late lunch just after 3pm and there were about another half a dozen people in the place. We received prompt service and got a table by the window to allow for some breeze as it was a hot day. We tried the Kurious Kiwi Larger and it was good.We had Garlic bread and Prawns to start with and they were both great. I then had Fish n Chips, fish was cooked lovely but was a bit heavy on the salt and the sauce had lots of capers in it. My partner had the Market fish which was Salmon, Monk fish on some chinese/soy sauce vegetables, not being a fan of soy sauce i found this too strong.
I would definately go back and would recommend. Good variety of things on menu and average prices. Handy that they are open from 11am onwards everyday. Look forward to dining again.
