We sat to just have a drink and use the wifi, but the bar area has so much history and things to look at, we spent more time than we planned. It is a great place to sit and the food smelled divine! Ginger spriz mocktail was wonderful!

We had fish and chips and garlic ciabatta(please excuse the spelling) bread. Was tasty food and enjoyable dining outside on the footpath, people watching. The wine was average and apparently the beer was excellent.

Hello 888gailm Thanks for visiting us, the great thing about wine especially in Hawke's Bay is that it is so diverse that we have something to suit everyone's palate, so the wine is not average just not to your taste. Thanks again and we hope you enjoyed the rest of your stay. Shaye Bird More
