However, when I arrived and showed them my deal voucher and code number displayed on my iPhone we were pretty rudely told me that in order to utilise the deal voucher we would need to drive all the way back to our house (in Tawa?) and print it off in paper format for their till.
For a $9.00 voucher there was no way we were going to spend $10.00 petrol driving home to print it off especially when all deal vouchers have a code which they can enter into their systems.
We ended up paying for our coffees and needless to say the coupon was a total waste of money because it expired before we got a chance to use it again. When our coffees arrived (a mocha-chino and trim latte) they were watery, not very nice and the trim latte had coffee burnt around the top of the cup so it looked like it hadn’t been washed since it had last been used.
The service was terrible and the girls acted like they didn’t even want to serve you. I was like you were inconveniencing their day by ordering a coffee and wanting to spend money at their restaurant. Wouldn’t recommend going there.

Service didn’t improve after that, mainly being totally ignored and then had 2 staff members sit near by and bitch about customers. What ever happened to service with a smile and being gratefully employed?
First visit was for lunch, my partner and I walk in the door and the first thing we are addressed with was “Can I see some ID.” When this little girl went away to check if they were still doing lunch, we walked out. A paying customer should NEVER be treated like that, absolutely disgusting.
Second time I came here was on a Tuesday night. This was their quiz night. We had made a booking for 20 people, for a Grandmothers birthday. On the phone a staff member went to check that it would be ok to have that many people, which apparently it was and we’d have the whole upstairs function room.
Why did they lie? They were not able to accommodate that many people. All the staff were in a bad mood, I didn’t see anyone smile, not even once. We had to walk downstairs to order our own drinks; we waited for our meals for over an hour from order. Most distressing was a younger family member who was really hungry and tired with the long wait. Her order was some sausages and mash, which was asked to come out early, twice, but came approximately 15 minutes before our meals, PIPING hot which made it too late, they had to leave, and the staff decided to come upstairs looking for money for the child’s’ meal and fathers’ meal which he never got to eat.
No respect for anyone else’s requirements.
I am honestly shocked with this poor service. Why should we have to go downstairs and ask for our own water for the table? Is that not a standard procedure?
I understand the place was busy as it was quiz night, but why not say that on the phone? Why say it would be fine so we come in and have to endure 3+ hours of waiting around?
And a small article about the food; I had the antipasto platter which was fine, some people had chicken burgers which were dry, and the chips were incredibly soggy.
Moral, don’t go here unless you don’Moret care about being treated like a human being.

The service was really slack, we had to ask twice before being given menus and had to go to the bar to get drinks and ask for our order to be taken as the table service was almost nonexistent.
The food was average, I had the fish and chips, the salad was just lettuce mix and very wilted with no dressing and the fish wasn’t fresh. The other meals were ok, although three of the five meals arrived five minutes before the other two.
I won’t be going back to this restaurant.

I got there first at 6pm. It was very busy. I hadn’t made a booking but the staff were very accommodating and found a table we could use until the next booking at 7.30pm (we finished at 7.23pm).
I had sausages and mash – one of my favourite meals. I got three huge sausages on a bed of soft mash and lovely thick onion gravy. Another of our party had fish and chips and got three sizable pieces of fish and loads of chips.
I found my meal to be very filling and, although tempted, I just couldn’t find space to try the dessert menu.
Other positives were that the staff were suitably attentive without being intrusive and the location of the bar with lots of parking (if you get there early enough) makes it a great place for us to go to. We’ll no doubt be back.

We have been here a number of times in the past, but probably not for about a year. We were really quite disappointed this time. My sisters Fish was raw and had to be returned. My Chicken was dry and not very tender. My brother inlaw complained that the steak was tough, and my husband was not that impressed with his burger. We have been in years passed very impressed with our meals, so it was a real disappointement for us on this occasion. Can not complain about staff service, they were very good. Not sure if we will come again.
Even the “kids eat free” special is not enough to make me return until I hear the chef has changed.
Seriously, you’d cook better yourself at home.
we have been there twice now once with children and once without and both times we were taken care of very well, would recommend to anyone, food is well presented and tastes great, recommend the big boys steak and eggs and the spinach and bacon pasta. Kids meals are taken to a whole new level and presented with as much professionalism as the adult mains. fantastic wine and beer selection. cant wait to eat there over summer and enjoy the sea view over dinner.
