I've heard many wonderful things about The Refinery in Paeroa and FINALLY went to seek out my own interpretation on Sunday, have to say every positive comment I've ever heard was absolutely true! From the friendly staff to the relaxed atmosphere and eclectic style. I felt at home from walking in the door to the time we left, in fact we were so relaxed we were reluctant to leave and continue our journey. My niece and her friend enjoyed putting the finishing touches to their bagels themselves, as typically fussy teenagers, being able to actually create their own taste with all the ingredients provided was refreshing. The Pork Belly with crackling crackle, chilli and homemade apple sauce was perfectly tasty and filling with my cup of tea strong and hot. My friend smugly said 'I told you so' when discussing the laid back lunch we were enjoying, hence we will be back!
