Fodor's Review

This old bank building, complete with a vault, is loaded with local character in its new guise as a cheerful pub and gathering spot. If the coal mining heritage of this town interests you, you will enjoy the memorabilia and photos on display. They serve good Kiwi tucker here, anything from breakfast and brunch to light meals to kids' meals to stone-grill steaks and seafood (where you get to cook the lovely presented food on your own, sizzling volcanic hot stone). The meals are hearty, and it's a very kid-friendly spot. There's a big covered courtyard for summer dining.
