Enjoyed some tasty tapa plates with drinks. Casual dining with good prices in a nice atmosphere. Seemed a popular bar. Evening Sunlight beams in the Windows.

Good for beer and a patio, the food is decent but nothing that will blow your mind. A step about pub food in a pub environment.

Good quality food and selection with great service, Central location and you can eat in the bar or upstairs in the restaurant (which we did).

Restaurant is upstairs from the bar and is an interesting place to eat with historic photos, books, games, stained glass windows and specials menu on a butchers paper roll. We both had different hamburgers which were delicious. Buns were really nice. Fries were a little overdone for my taste. Served on a metal tray so a bit hard to cut... More

Went for dinner with a group the other night, meals were very over priced, rubbish. I had fish n chips, greasy horrible mess in a buckled roasting dish that slid all over the table when you tried to cut the food. Too hot and noisy sitting up stairs, really the place is overrated by Taranaki

Used to serve the best bar food but tonight it was utter cap. Prefer a feed of KFC. Pitiful barmaid didn't even ask how the meal was. Maybe the pool of Chuck at my feet said it all.

Don't eat here!! Awful over priced food and the staff really don't care. The food suggested as a sharing meal only had enough for one ... ie the duck pancakes to share..'implying two people ..... only had three pancakes.... the servings were small and lacked flavour. The meals were over priced and the staff disinterested. Many better places to go... More

Had a pleasant meal here with family & friends recently. We shared some small plates of duck pancakes, crumbed prawns & chicken bites which were all tasty. Quite a long wait between this & the main course but we had plenty to talk about. The menu is quite extensive & we had all ordered different mains ranging from steak, fish... More
