The Pioneer is tucked away under the hideous Nautilus building, set a bit back from the main drag of Orewa. We visited with friends on a Saturday afternoon and were surprised to see the place totally deserted. The German owner was friendly and the place did have a Teutonic vibe, although considering it was Christmas time the decorations were very understated. However, the permanent decorations of blown up images of colonial Orewa were worth the visit alone. The draft beer was top notch and the pub grub went down a treat. Although a few people did show up later on, the atmosphere was a bit flat, or I woud have ranke dit higher.
