An absolute favourite - they have a really good menu that everyone can find something they like. If you have children check out the kids menu, and the courtyard with an area for smaller children. Something for everyone, they even have a boardroom for meetings.

after eating at the best fish and chip shop next door we walk into the bar for a pint of the local beer. We sat in the garden in the sun and drank monteith's pale which just looked delicious and tasted it as well . The service was very good and the price was good as well. Next time I will have to try something to eat as well. My wife had a cappuccino coffe which she also enjoyed.

We had both dinner and breakfast here as it was close to where we were staying. The portions were very large which we rarely experienced in our travels around NZ. I had the fish and chips for dinner and they were light and tasty. One plate at breakfast could easily feed two. The service was friendly and very attentive.

Overall this restaurant offers a good menu. I had a venison steak which was superb. The wines are pricey. Service was disappointing. We waited 20 minutes before anyone acknowledged our presence or presented us with a menu. We did not feel that we were welcomed and this was despite booking our table in advance. They need to get this right as there are several competing restaurants nearby.

We went here for a quick drink one afternoon and breakfast the following morning which was excellent. They also have free Wi-Fi for guests.
