Lived in Hawkes bay my whole life and been here many times so finally decided to write a review. Sunday menu is very boring and quality of food was poor, loading ramp is great for afew drinks but iv always been disappointed with the food and menu in general.

We were very pleasantly surprised to find this bar with fantastic food, great staff and nice ambiance to socialize with friends. The meal we had was just great, lamb steak, in fact it was a generous size meal that I couldn't eta all. Others in our group couldn't eta all their meals either, very generous size. Well done to all... More

Went there for the All Blacks v Australia. Great service and the food was fantastic. I had the fish and chips and it came with great tartar sauce and a vinegar spray and was so moist. Gillian had the Half chicken that was just amazing. The others had a selection of mains that were equally as good. Happy group that's... More

Came as part of a large group on a Friday evening. Some of us had pre ordered our food, others hadn't. Meals didnt come out all at the same time which was a bit weird. Huge Portions, almost too big. Very hard to hear conversation over the Friday night drinking crowd. Friendly service. Great value for money.

Hi Antarisha. Thank you very much for your review. Apologies for the meals not coming out at the same time. This is not our usual practice however as you have mentioned, half of the guests had pre-ordered and we took the order of the remaining guests as they arrived. The pre-ordered food came out at the host's requested time and... More
