We've eaten here every time we come to Hawera, great food, best I've found in this town. Unique building, near the infamous water tower. The waiter is informed & very helpful. The lovely food is cooked well & presented beautifully. We'll be back.

Definitely worth its high rating for Hawera. My ladies had entrees only - both highly recommended (deep fried Camembert and diced lamb) both to perfection and generous size for entree. My warm salad with beef excellent. Will return passing through. Friendly staff.

Delicious lamb shanks and vegetables plated beautifully. The berry, apple and pear Crumble dessert was absolutely yummy. Excellent service in a clean and inviting atmosphere.
