This was good pub grub! Fun atmosphere, really friendly staff. Kids enjoyed it. We were there over New Year and the whole town was busy, and I live in California so I know busy! But we got a table and everyone enjoyed their dinner.

Worth a visit alone for the Jumbo Meat Skewer, guaranteed to satisfy the biggest of appetites. The skewer arrives on a long board, and is drizzled with a béarnaise style sauce. The meat we found to be succulent with the sausage having a mild spice to it which added perfectly to the overall flavour of the meal. Leffe Blonde was... More

We went there for dinner few days before Christmas. It was full house. I believe they were under staff that night. Therefore, the service was slow, and we need to run up to the counter when we need to ask for something. We waited for quite a while before the wait staff brought us some water. Food was slow. We...

Our visit started out amazing- the waiter was friendly and helpful. But once dinner was served it went down. The food was average and it took 30min for someone to come and clear the tables and ask if we wanted dessert. No one popped over to check drinks etc. desserts was mixed and certain items were missing- but this was... More

We ended up here with a group of people looking for a place where we could still get dinner rather late for NZ. The Belgian theme was a plus. Unfortunately, the food was only middling, partially quite good, partially (e.g. my mussels) overcooked and appearing reheated. The nice choice of Belgian beers on the menu led to some disappointment as... More

I went for a quick bite to eat at lunch. There are lots of tables, including a big one where anyone can sit at. I love those kind of tables. I ordered some Belgian fries and a cider, and realised I should have asked about portion size first. The cider was a huge glass, delicious, but a lot! And the... More

We ordered two rump steak with fries and asked for medium cook. The steak that came were so thin and dry, cooked to well done. I couldn't force myself to finish the steak as it was so horribly dry, chewy and tasteless. I left more than half of the steak and fries on the plate. We went there because we... More

Recent visit for dinner & drinks. The food was extremely disappointing. We ordered steak & spicy pork ribs. The steak was chewy & hard to swallow (took it hm for the dog) & the pork ribs were definately not spicy, lacked flavour. Customer service was great. Won't be back!
