… and live music. Get away from the city and feel right at home…

Our courtyard looks out onto hills sprinkled with cabbage trees and cottages, and inside is as warm and welcoming as your own living room.  Stay for a meal. It’s pub grub, but not as you know it. Our original tapas, mains and desserts are far from your average bar food fare, with an emphasis on quality and taste.  Don’t forget our Tuesday Quiz night.  Love some local music. Our Sunday Session is world famous in Wellington!  We often showcase local bands live on Sunday from 3-5 with no cover charge.
