16 of us cyclists descended on this unpretentious pub. Good thing we booked as it was chockers on Easter Sunday. Our food was generous servings , excellent quality and they brought it out all together. They have an interesting and extensive menu. Highly recommended.

The Puketapu bike trail is my favourite as you can stop half way for lunch at the Hotel. The food is fresh and delicious and the staff are friendly. Suitable for families and there's a bowl of water for the dog outside.
