Went there on a craft beer tour, very impressed with beers and the relaxing environment. The information on making the different types of beer was very informative. Would return again if we return to waiheke.
Stunning. (Our second time visiting)
Our family of four visited on Labour weekend Saturday with no booking.
All of the tables on the lawn were reserved but there were tables under the shade sail next to the lawn.
Service was very good and some one was nearby every time we wanted something.
We played chess, had a beautiful platter and a few nibbles as well.
We whiled away 3 hour of an afternoon with our kids which was just brilliant.
So nice to see other families and groups of friends enjoying the venue.
I agree with the previous reviewer, having sampled all beers and wines over the 3 hours I will certainly be looking for a local stockist. The Onetangi dark ale and no alcoholic Ginger beer are so good. Ginger beer like dad use to make.
Thanks for a brilliant afternoon!
We booked a week ahead for a table for four on a grey June Sunday. When we got there – we found that the very few inside tables were taken and we had to sit in an unheated ‘marquee’ area. The fact that the staff all had fleecy jackets on was an indication of the outside temperature. The staff were very friendly – but the food took over an hour to arrive. We all had burgers and fries – so it wasn’t rocket science. People who arrived after us were served before us.
The beer was good – the burgers were generous. I guess it’s fine as a summer venue – just avoid in the winter months.
My wife and I popped in here last weekend for a Beer Tasting and it was a swell little spot, the beer was great and we will be back on the next trip for some more Pale Ale!!
OK… so —- where to begin. To be fair, I haven’t eaten here. But this place serves the most under-rated beer in the universe. And they have life-sized outdoor chess and beautiful bean bags, and play cool music, and lovely staff and they gave us free tasters of all the beers even though we proceeded to have a handle of all of them anyway. Tthe sunny day may have helped the vibe, but it was so beautiful and I really want to visit again. I hope this beer becomes available nationwide.
