Quick service, fresh food, with your choice of refreshment, sometimes with live entertainment. Nice spot to people watch & look out across Lake Taupo to the mountains. Worth a try.

Situated almost at waters edge among a myriad of food options, this well patronised restaurant is what it says..Pub Grub! Service is order & pay at the bar from a varied menu and priced accordingly..tending towards the upper end of the price range. Alfresco dining is plentiful, can be a bit noisy with the main road right alongside, but the... More

My partner and I stopped at the Pub N Grub for dinner after walking around and checking out the prices and menus of the various restaurants within walking distance of the motel where we were staying. We had a burger & chips (fries) and a fish sandwich. Loved the way they served the chips in a mini-facsimile metal basket like... More

Customer service very good. Very friendly young women. I love my food but the price I paid for the Salmon meal I didn't have that price taste. It looked yummy though so was a disappointment. Just tasted plain. Hubby and Daughter had Steak meals, they reckon they've had better for 15bux. Lacked flavour and juicyness. Nice place though.

Stopped here for lunch. Has outdoor tables do you have a nice view of the lake. Menu was okay - standard pub menu and not too badly priced. We had the cajun chicken wrap & scrambled egg on toast. Both were nice and good portion sizes. If you open a tab you need to hand over your card first which... More

We stopped for a late lunch and ordered a Salmon Nicoise (me) and BLT (my husband). Service was slow and while the BLT was ok, the salmon nicoise was awful! Limp lettuce with blobs of mashed potato (yek!) ruined the dish. Once I navigated around that, there was wasn't much else left to eat. There are lots of other options... More

Our food took over 45 minutes to arrive, with no explanation or apology. They weren't particularly busy. The food was alright, nothing amazing. But the service was exceptionally slow.

The pub is well situated at Lake Taupo, with nice views from the terrace and inside. The menu is good, nice assortment of pub food with great kids meals. Drinks are well priced, staff is friendly and food is quickly served. Adding in some vegetable to the meals would do no harm, otherwise I can't fail this place.
