I've got to agree with the review above/below by Shawn. This could be the pub with the best view in New Zealand. The beach is literally just across the road and, thanks to slightly elevated seating on Charlie Farley's deck, you get a brilliant view of people swimming, surfing and boating. The food here is good, but nothing to rave about. The service is a little bit slow and unfriendly, but that can be forgiven considering how busy it gets on a sunny day.
