“Good for pub grub or fine dining upstairs. Great to sit in the covered verandah on a sunny day and watch the world go by. Quiz night on winter Wednesdays a hit but book early or you'll miss out. Live music on occasions, always a good night out.”

Meal Takeaway
“Cafe and bar. Breakfast, lunch and dinner (dinner only Thursday-Saturday). Gluten & dairy free and vegetarian options available. "A great find in Wanganui. This little place is awesome, the best pizza's in town and we had to go back to try out their tasty Tapas. The service was really impressive and we felt like locals while we sampled their great range of Kiwi beers. It's also a good place for a drink at the weekend with funky music playing till late in the evening. Be sure to check this little gem during your visit. Weekdays 8:30 a.m. till 4:00pm Thursday 8:30 a.m. till late. Friday 8:30 a.m. till late. Saturday 11:00 a.m. till late”
