A real treat

Sep 13, 2016 by Delphi

We chanced to call jn here after reading about the hotel in a cycling brochure. We were driving today but checked it out anyway. We had lunch, the service was friendly and the meal of Venison burger for him and three sliders of Venison, Alpaca and Pulled pork for me were delicious. Highly recommended for a tasty menu with many great options.


The Most Amazing Food

Jul 30, 2015 by Courtney

We went to The Puketapu by chance yesterday and I ordered their Curry Pumpkin Soup while everyone else ordered Bluff Oysters. It was the most amazing meal I think we've ever had. The soup was not too spicy and incredibly rich in all the right ways, and everyone else was too busy stuffing their faces to praise the oysters. Today we came and I ordered the Zesty Chicken while everyone else had Soup, Fish of the Day, Thai Beef and Lamb Shanks. Nobody could song praises any higher, my grandmother said it was the best fish she's ever had. With food like that and a service that makes you feel right at home, this little place is worth the extra 5 minute drive. You'll save money with their low prices anyway. Affordable, welcome, adorable with to die for food - I don't know why you'd go elsewhere.

Alpaca Burgers at the Puketapu

Enjoyed the friendly and family-oriented atmosphere at The Puketapu last Saturday and Sunday on our four-day break from Auckland. Our Alpaca Burgers with Camembert and chips were tasty and the desserts delicious. Thank-you, Mary and staff for a country pub experience to remember!

Another great lunch. A group of us have been coming to The Puketapu for about 10 years now. Still great food and service. We are greeted as friends every time we go there. Lunch today was the best.
