We come here a few times a year and always enjoy the choice of beer and cider. Last time we tried pizzas which were were nice too, will definitely have another one on our next visit. There is also a toy box for little guests which makes it more relaxing for parents.

We pretty much stumbled across this great place while cycling the Great Taste trail out of Nelson. It's just 20 metres from the trail and less than a block from the Head Quarters cafe in Brightwater but problems with signage mean that you can blink and miss it.
