This is a nice bar. The service was good. They have a nice selection of beer, wine and mixed drinks. I wanted something refreshing and decided to try their pina colada and wow I’m glad I did! Probably one of the best I’ve ever had. I highly recommend if your in the area to stop in for a beverage. I can’t comment on the food since we didn’t eat there but the French fries everyone seemed to be getting looked they would have been tasty.

We were passing through Tauranga on a warm day and found this quirky bar for a refreshing beer and a snack. Nice place. The bar staff were really welcoming, friendly and informative. Beer was very good and the food we had was OK. Quite a program of live music and other entertainment up on the wall. Wish we could have stayed longer.

We had an average experience at the Barrel Room, perhaps partly due to the fact that we arrive 5mins before opening time. Staff were busy setting out tables and said we could take a seat, though the waiter seemed deadset on putting out all the menus and various other items on all of the tables before he was able to take our order. I ordered the fish and, after paying, was told they didn't have any fish. The wait for food seemed a little long too considering we were the only customers. Seemed like the staff could have arrived a few minutes earlier to work and everything would have run a lot smoother.
