“Awesome staff”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 5, 2012

Friendly staff, we didn't have a long wait on our meals or drinks and it was very busy... Meals are huge but they offer a doggy bag to take your leftovers if you wish.. A++

“GOOD VALUE FOR MONEY”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 17, 2012

The Crooked Door Inn is in keeping with an English atmosphere. We have dined there each time we have visited Taupo and are always very satisfied with the lovely food, of which is a generous portion, the wine and the very nice people who serve there. Would highly recommend.
