We ate the Sunday Special here - roast lamb or pork and all the trimmings for $20 - and it was utterly delicious. The portions were ample, the staff friendly and helpful, and we can't recommend it highly enough.

In an old NZ Railways station - all the old things from the days of steam. Great memories of NZR in its hey day. Good service, good food, great coffee and courteous staff. Worth the visit and reflections. Thank you ladies!
