Great Poolroom, friendly staff and good beers!

Not my usual watering hole in Paihia but a good place to go for a few rounds of pool or darts. Good beers at good prices.

Great bar to relax and maybe play a game or two of pool. The Barman, Derek, was hugely helpful when it came to local knowledge and places to go or things to do. The drinks were cheaper than most other places and the atmosphere friendly.

The Sandpit may be tucked away off the main strip, but it's worth the effort to look for. It quickly became our 'local' during a recent trip to Paihia. The bar has large American style pool tables and a good sound system. The drinks are very reasonbly priced and service very friendly.
