We have never eaten in an RSA before but someone recommended this one to us and we were not disappointed. The staff made us feel part of the family and were warm and helpful. the food is not "fancy" but good honest Kiwi kai. A great place for a feed. We had the roast beef - it came with roast... More

Bar staff were very friendly - great memory when buying a drink. All but one of the kitchen staff were great. One of them was very unwelcoming due to it being extremely busy but as rest were nice and accommodating it didnt bother us too much.

We visited the RSA while camping in Taumarunui. The staff were very friendly and welcoming. In particular John on the bar. The meal was good home style, just what you need when you've been camping in the rain!

We enjoy going to the RSAs and have been to a number in both NZ and Australia. The food in Taumarunui was great. The barman was very polite and helpful. He said he would bring our drinks over once we were seated. A good selection of meals was available. We enjoyed the roast pork special and it was beautifully cooked.... More

A typical pub style menu with good basic food served by a group of hard working ladies. The bar tender was extremely polite and helpful. They were busy so service was a little slow but didnt really matter as being on holiday was all about relaxing and chilling out.

We dined on a busy Friday night and at time of ordering 3 items were no longer available so settled for the Scotch Fillet steak, cooked med/rare to perfection however the Salad Bar was disappointing, well picked over and looking quite unappealing with utensils needing replacing from mixed use between the dishes.

This place served us delicious meals with plenty of food on the plate for a very reasonable price. The staff were welcoming, friendly, and helpful people. We had the steak meal and Beef Olives. The meat and veggies were cooked to perfection and presentation was like a home-cooked meal. For dessert we each had an Ice cream sundae. If you... More
