“Not just for Truckers”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 19 March 2014

Stag Park Diner is a hidden gem just off the new by-pass on the Napier Rd.
Its always been a favorite stop for us as its also a family diner.
There's a great variety on the menu with all day breakfasts through to diner meals as well as kids meals.
There is a separate wing for the Truckers which is worth a look in for the atmosphere there.
If sausages are your thing I can recommend the ones served here. Made local with big pieces of onion in them.
On our last visit we had the Lambs Fry, with Bacon, Onion, Egg and gravy. Really good!
If you are traveling with children or you are a big kid yourself, the trucks parked there are a good diversion.

“Sunday English breakfast”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 9 March 2014

Awesome, money well spent, totally refueled after a busy night. Service was great, the only disappointment was our coffee which wasn't hot or very strong.

“Excellent value”

When we travel from Auckland to Napier we try and always dine at Stag Park Diner. The meals are very generous and inexpensive.

“Open all hours”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 14 June 2013

We stayed nearby at the De Brett's Spa hotel complex, and having taken advantage of a late evening thermal valley spa soak, it was too late for any town eatery to be taking orders, so tried the Stag Park diner. We had an excellent no-frills meal at a reasonable price.

“24 hours a day - Big Meals - Reasonable Price”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 16 December 2012

We eat here everytime we are in Taupo (actually several times while we are in Taupo). Large Breakfasts and Evening Meals served all day and night - 24 hours. Don't expect silver service - order at the counter and take a seat and your cup and make your own teas or instant coffees in dining room. American style Breakfast comes with Baked beans or spaghetti, eggs any style, 3 slices of middle bacon, 2 x hashbrowns (can be swapped for chips) + 2 slices of toast - help yourself to jam and black sauce - all for $16+$2 hot drink. Their steak meals are reasonable prices and are pretty standard but good quality for the money. They also do truckie specials (for everyone) like Mince on Toast etc.
Parking is more than excellent with room for cars, trailors, trucks or what have you.
Toilets are always clean and tidy.
Electronic games room for the kids and a basic playground at end of carpark - with horses next door to pat sometimes
I have stayed in the accommodation once which was shared bathrooms, quite dated but very reasonable priced for Taupo and good for last minute visits where everywhere else is booked - some have been upgraded slightly.
