Delicious fresh bites

This is the kind of place where you forget what the time is. Sit back, relax, eat and chat over some delicious fresh bites and our award-winning ciders. Our kitchen is open Wednesday to Sunday from 11am till 5pm(ish) if you are still peckish at this time – we will whip up something to fill the gap.

Our menu is made from scratch, it’s fresh, lovingly sourced and served with smiles from our team of local Te Puna teens. A lot of them are young and keen to work their first job so please be gentle and encouraging…we love them and our small community out here!
