Stopped in here on many occasions, awesome food and great service behind the bar. Really good selection of beers and spirits, best place in town for a burger and beer!

Stopped by on our first night in Akaroa, wanting to have a nice meal and somewhere to watch the rugby. Excellent food and very attentive and friendly staff. Well worth a visit

After a kayaka adventure it was time for something on tap and some fish and chips. Excellent! Most of the kegs were from Dunedin NZ. The staff included someone from France and all the staff was friendly and courteous. We really felt like we were...More

Compared to other places in Akaroa, this place (or at least the bar at the back) has a more rootsy and authentic feel to it, which we really liked. The covered patio out back is a pleasant place to sit and chat over a couple...More

It's a basic pub that serves pub type food to a clientele that appears to be mainly locals. Its also the local bottle shop, with reasonable prices.

Great spot to enjoy a Speight's away from the cruise ship hoards. Nothing flash but just a really nice place for a quiet beer in the beergarden.

Warm, atmospheric traditional Kiwi pub. Come on in and watch sports, listen to good, live music at the weekends, and enjoy our variety or homemade food. The upstairs hostel is great for meeting new people, enjoying the beauty of Akaroa for a few days, and to enjoy a night out without having to even exit the building!
