This an event hosted by the Puketapu Hotel and it was great fun. The purpose was to launch two wine labels but the whole package was superb - four courses of wine matched food. The scallops were delicious, steak melted in the mouth and the chardonnay was probably one of the best I have ever had (not bad when you live in chardonnay central). The reds were pretty damn fine as well.

All that said the friendly local and great staff really pulled the evening together

People tell me that the bike ride out is great and being fed and watered before biking back in makes for a great day.

Draw back are it is a drive out on a country road to get there and home- you most have a sober driver, so a very reliable friend or taxis. On the food front the desert was very sweet.

Had great wholesome meal here with local friends and us touring with the Lions. Very friendly atmosphere in a busy pub diner. The food was served very quickly and was of great quality. A lot of choice on the menu and a wide variety of beers on tap.

Visited for lunch with friends.
Surroundings were clean but basic
Service in restaurant section where we were was excellent the waiter was on the ball and very helpful.
The food was excellent and very reasonable priced.
Children of all ages were welcome and toys, games, colouring in books and pencils were provided.
A great lunch. Will go again.
We went on a Saturday and it was not crowded but it pays to book
