A typical unclassy NZ pub that serves beer.
Dressed up with some nice memorabilia, and friendly staff that offer to give you a sample of their beer without asking. Meals are affordable. If you could put in a wish list it would be nice to have a little more though put into their beer garden.

Spent an afternoon with a mate have a some bets on the horses & few beers.
Bucks is the only TAB in Whangmata & is well set up for anyone wanting a flutter. There is a seperate Gaming Lounge for those wanting to play the pokies & a large area, well served with TAB screens.There are 2 TAB terminals at the bar & two self service terminals.
And if you want to catch a big game on the large screen then this is the perfect place.
Hot meals & snacks are available. We didn't partake in the food but the menu, while just your basic fare, was reasonably priced & a couple of meals I saw going out looked excellent value.
There was a good selection of bottled & tap beer on offer.
The bar areas were clean & tidy as were the mens toilets.
Very enjoyable afternoon & easy to recommend.
Oh, & I came out ahead on my bets!

Bucks is a large open area bar with friendly staff, plenty of flat screen TVs and great service. Good food at good prices. We wouldn't hesitate in recommending Bucks to anyone that wanted a good meal with a friendly atmosphere.

Damn good size Burgers & chips to go with it. Very good prices too. We arrived with a large group of 20 plus riders, unannounced. Service a little delayed due to our large group. Will phone next time to warn the staff. Otherwise excellent burgers.
