We had dinner here on Saturday night and was pleasantly surprised as the food was just devine, I had the lamb rack and really wished I had it as a main not an entree, watching the people and sitting outside was just lovely in the sun.

Renovated wool shed on the quay where attentive and friendly staff deliver really tasty food and wine. You can choose to sit inside or out without looking this unique experience. Great place for lunch and watching the world go by!

Ideal location with Harbour views. Nice relaxed atmosphere on a sunny evening. Great beer and wine options and we enjoyed a tasty pizza. Service was also good, attentive without being over the top. Recommended for a drink or dinner!

Well, welcome was very good. Food was superb, wine list too. The menu has a great variety to choose from. Sadly the service slacked, not the waitress herself, although we just became another job in the end but I feel they were perhaps short staff as I notice she never stopped and that, being under pressure means there's no time...

Four of us had a family gathering and were very pleased with our choice. I had fresh fish and chips and it was a generous serving while others had burgers which were ok. Dessert was a more up market treat, did take a while to come but was well worth the wait. The setting is superb.

Place has a wharehouse feel with large open space. Several of us ordered pizzas. The pizza is okay but the bottom of the crust was a bit soft. Reasonable amount of topping. Taste okay not fantastic. A reasonable selection of meals but it is no fine dining menu. I wouldn't go back.

Willy would you know what Gourmet dining was.? You dine almost exclusively in ethnic restaurants. The menu clearly says GASTRO PUB. Could you really be reviewing on price Willy ? You could always drop us a line on your fine dining / Gourmet experiences to enlighten us. I don't see any in your 25 Reviews. Fine dining was dropped by... More

Popped in twice this week with family and friends. Delicious pizzas and a menu to please all palates as one guest is vegetarian. Great wine list too. Friendly entertaining staff. Thanks and the fire is always warm and inviting. Cheers

I went here with a friend on my last visit to Napier. It is a lovely environment for a pub meal and a glass of wine for a catch up. The setting is lovely looking out over the harbour. The food was nice and the service great.

Have been here twice in groups of 10ish.. The drinks took nearly as long as the food to come out.. Which is strange considering the have bar staff and it wasn't that busy. My first visit I had the Margherita type pizza which was very bland and needed seasoning..a lot. the other pizza was the duck and it was apparently... More

Your review is about as authentic as a Kardashian Tan. I see your review is 5 days old. You are talking about items that have not been on the menu for months. Not sure why you came the second time but the good news is you wont be coming back. Keep to that and we all be happy as are... More

For great value fresh food and fine wine list "The Shed" is a popular venue in an informal setting. The Italian wood-fired pizzas are famous in the Bay, and with great platters for sharing, the taste buds are sure to be tantalised. (Try the Caution Dining Lounge for a more intimate night out!!!)

A huge open fire is a spectacular site on winter nights, however in summer with a massive deck to enjoy the vista of the inner harbour and the Ruahine Mountain ranges, the sunset is stunning and not to be missed.
The craft beer menu has 21 interesting and premium beers on tap and the wine list is a showcase of Hawkes Bays finest.
