This restaurant has changed its menu a bit since i was last there and it's a real improvement. Really enjoyed trying a few different things and the flavours were great. Staff were friendly and helpful. Everything was nicely cooked and the polenta chips were yummy and so was the spicy fried chicken. There is nice mexican/Spanish type theme which is... More

Popped in for a pre-dinner drink. Great selection of craft beers on tap, more than one brand of gin and I'm sure it's got a good wine list. Judging by the local populace here, it serves NP well.

Went here for tea and the food was amazing, we ordered multiple dishes and shared them between 2. Every dish we got was great and came out in a good time. Highly recommend.

Jess is the best. And the beef cheeks are possibly one of the most satisfying meal you could eat. Friendly staff, good food. A must try if your in New Plymouth

My 18 yo son and I enjoyed the food. Perfect for a cold and windy night. We ate fired jalapeño bites, spicy fried chicken - juicy and tender, a burger for him and better than your average nachos for me (though no avocado). The servings were much more generous in size than expected leaving us feeling uncomfortably full (we're not... More

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
