This relaxed restaurant specializes in giant gourmet pizzas with ominous names, like "Ren and Stinky" (lots of mozzarella) and "Foul Play" (yes, chicken), but it also serves a variety of generic New Zealand food, light meals, salads, and meaty mains. The space, which includes a bar and music venue, retains the brick-and-stone interior of an 1850s former hotel. There's a strong Kiwi vibe throughout, with stained-and-polished wool presses for bar stands and giant plasma
TVs for engaging in that favorite Kiwi pastime: watching sports. A spacious veranda, free wireless Internet for diners, and stylish bathrooms are also notable. Happy hour, 4:30–6:30 on weeknights, is a bargain, and there's live music some nights after 10.
