We had lunch here today for my Dad's 80th birthday and it was great. Really good varied menu and we were all happy with our choices. We had a vegetarian in the group and there was plenty for her to choose from.

The Manager came over and wished my dad a happy birthday and then they gave him a complementary dessert with a candle. A really nice touch and much appreciated by the birthday boy.

Great service, lovely interior and the courtyard would be very pleasant on a nice day.

Will definitely be back.

My partner and I got married in New Zealand and shared the day with family and friends. It was a small affair so we had pre-booked the pub for our lunch.
Nora, the manageress and her staff were excellent by ensuring that all was to our satisfaction. This is a gem of a pub with historical connections to the area. Across the road from the pub there is the Matakana weekend Markets which are very popular. If travelling in that direction then you couldn't find a better place to relax and have lunch.
Thank you again Nora and staff.

This is by far our favourite pub in New Zealand! The food is superb ( try the ribs, the burger, the seafood chowder ) and the staff are outstanding! It’s the best!
