Walking along the streets of Napier, and I say to my wife, I feel like a pub meal. And then we just happen to stumble along this little place.

I ordered the soft tacos, which were very nice. Rather large servings all round. Both the kids ordered a bowl of chips each. They could quite easily have shared one between them. From our time spent here, that was the only let down, that the bar staff didn't mention this.

The outdoor seating was great. Just next to a little park. Weather was great. Service was good and friendly.

Would be more than happy to return.

Thankful that we stopped in here for lunch when on a shore day from our cruise. Lots of room and a great outdoor seating area for a relaxed lunch. The meals were large, plenty to share around if you care too, the food was great too. We are so used to ordering food and getting small portions that we were surprised at the generosity of the meals. The staff were friendly and relaxed which added to the great afternoon.

A pleasant surprise. We had walked past many restaurants' and liked the look of The Brazenhead. We were not disappointed. We thoroughly enjoyed our meal. The staff were very friendly. As it was quite a warm night it was lovely to sit in the outdoor area to further enjoy are dining experience. Well worth a visit.

Cheap kids menu with quality food and sizeable servings. Highly recommend. Small adult menu but just makes for quicker choices. Lovely flavors generous serving for the value and quick to the table. Wonderful cheerful service with great selection of beer and wine. Unique decor with live music the night we went. Parking outside free.

This is an Irish pub with a welcoming atmosphere. Good simple food is served at lunch time and at dinner time at very reasonable costs. We had both lunch and dinner there.
