This uninspiring looking hotel is actually a gastronomical delight. We chose the Moroccan chicken salad & the Vietnamese Chicken salad. Both were superb. Lovely stop on our cycle trail.

The fact this pub is so popular speaks for itself. The owner Mary is super accommodating, friendly and she runs a tight ship. There is an extensive menu with great tasting, decent sized, very reasonably priced meals. Well worth a visit.

We tried this restaurant on a visit to Napier and were very impressed. The food was delicious and I can recommend the Lamb Shank which I had. The other three guests all enjoyed their meals also. The Creme Brulee for dessert was very nice indeed....More
