Great bar restaurant, nice outdoor area. Menu ok and varied but service disappointing. Really let the place down. Staff seemed unhappy and even surly behind the bar. Will still come back tho, but hope it's better next time.

Lived in Hawkes bay my whole life and been here many times so finally decided to write a review. Sunday menu is very boring and quality of food was poor, loading ramp is great for afew drinks but iv always been disappointed with the food and menu in general.

The meal we had was just great, lamb steak, in fact it was a generous size meal that I couldn't eta all. Others in our group couldn't eta all their meals either, very generous size. Well done to all... More

Went there for the All Blacks v Australia. Great service and the food was fantastic. I had the fish and chips and it came with great tartar sauce and a vinegar spray and was so moist. Gillian had the Half chicken that was just amazing. The others had a selection of mains that were equally as good. Happy group that's... More

I love the snitzel or shared platter. In winter the fire is nice and toastie and in summer there is aircon or two areas for outside seating. The staff are very friendly and accommodating. Great service also
