“Classy Pub, Nice Vibe”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 26, 2014

Modern, chic, gastro pub with amazing design detail going on inside. A nice ambient place to have a cold one and a meal whilst visiting New Plymouth. Gets very busy after 5pm and is jammed packed on a Friday night!

Options for eating are outside in the sun, inside the bar area or up a small flight of stairs to a dining room. Was nice and quiet on a Wednesday lunchtime, the menu has something for everyone including Tapas, Burgers and Steak and the best hand cut chips with little jugs of gravy and aoli. Service is always attentive and friendly.

Nice ambience, good wait staff. Rachel runs a good ship. Good bar snacks, upstairs restaurant is good. Clientele generally 20's up, good crowd, friendly. Pub quiz Thursdays. Central location.

Fair bit classier than some nearby pubs!!

“STEAK TO DIE FOR......”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 12, 2014

We've only just started going back to this restaurant, as we'd heard it had changed hands: we've had the very best steaks there three times, recently, and would highly recommend this restaurant to Anyone, who enjoys a brilliant steak meal. That they have pulled three perfectly prepared steaks three times in a row is enough for us to keep on going back. Service is casual, but efficient, and the décor isn't bad. The only grump I have is that on a really hot day, to sit near the door or window, you cop second hand smoke from the outside tables...but otherwise, we have no complaints whatever. We have eaten here three times since mid February, and will be dining there again next week...and plan on taking a guest there over Easter, also.

Mussels is a must try. Very friendly staff. Good food : probably the best fries I have had in NZ. It is really worth a visit. Will return for sure.
