Great selection on menu from roasts to wraps. I had a fabulous pork roast - smaller plate for $15. Others had great chicken wrap and very good toasted sandwiches. Fish burger and chips was also delicious. Staff were very friendly and we didn't have to wait long. The scenery surrounding is just beautiful.

After hearing lots of good things about the Puketapu, we decided to try it for a family birthday dinner. We waited a long time for our drinks order to be taken then for it to arrive. We had the in-house made cob that was supposed to come with olive oil, dukkah and hummus. Halfway through I thought something was missing,... More

Did the loop cycle trail and came back for a lunchtime feed. Good pub food with generous servings, undercover seating but attracted smokers which was the only down side to time there.

We had the absolutely lunch at this Hotel Restuarant today to celebrate my husband's birthday. We both had the Pork Roast meal - delicious ! The desserts really finished us off, including the Kapiti vanilla icecream, top notch ! Good service along with the good food, thanks people, you made our day.

Service for lunch was very slow - and this was not a busy packed out day by any means. The outside eating area is very shabby - it needs a lot of TLC to make it more welcoming. The dish I had for lunch was very small, and the chef seemed to have relied heavily on overly sweet sauce which... More

Had lunch here on the recommendation of family members, certainly weren't disappointed. Plenty of parking, great service and a small but fantastic menu. I had the seared kangaroo with blue cheese and it was divine; cost $39.00 for two drinks and mains, so very happy with the prices. In the garden bar they allow you to have your dog/s, so... More
