A country pub within 15 minutes of downtown, my son and I stopped off at the Bay View Hotel for lunch on our way back to Napier after an hour or so of walking through the bush. I'm delighted we did. Greeted warmly by the affable Trevor, the pub was clean, light and airy. The menu was simple and contained... More

My husband and I were impressed with the well-priced bar meals and the friendly welcome we had from all members of staff. When visiting Napier in future, we plan to eat there again and will definitely be recommending to friends and family. Keep up the good work and thanks again.

Had an enjoyable meal. Steak was cooked perfectly to our request, lamb burgers were delicious and kids meals were well received. Friendly service and accommodating dietary needs. Thanks so much.

Anyone travelling thru Bay View on a sunday afternoon should find the time to endulge in the Pig On The Spit. It is recommended that you get there at 5.30pm so as not to miss out.. The meal includes a good variety of vegetables, crackling for the pork and gravy. Yum. There is desert for afters if you wish. A... More

Our Rotary Club meets here every Monday night. The staff are lovely and nothing is too much of a problem. No complaints about the food, it is always good. The bars are relaxing with lots of sport on the TV various screens. Have had drinks and dinner at other times apart from our Rotary Meetings and have always enjoyed myself.... More

The Bay View Hotel has provided a Sunday night 'Pig on a spit' for many years. I first went over 10 years ago and the only thing changed is a bigger plate and a slight price increase. Consistently good food and great friendly service. Value for $$$$. Family friendly. I recommend booking as it is well known. You won't leave... More

Every Sunday they do a traditional English roast with dessert. For $22 a head you can't go wrong. It's a carvery-style setup with plenty of food - those with big appetites are encouraged to go back for seconds. Great idea and very well supported.

The owners of this wee pub were fantastic. They went over and above by picking us up from the camping ground and returning us after dinner at no extra cost, and everybody at our table was amazed at the great value of the meals we had. We liked that it wasn't fancy and the menu wasn't huge but there was... More
