Our public bar is your main point of entry into our reception, whether you are in for the night, a casual drink, a great meal or a myriad of other good reasons. You will also be welcomed by warm professional staff or owners and one of the best views from any pub on the planet.

Guests enjoy a wide selection of both alcoholic and non-alcoholic drinks. We proudly support 2 Christchurch breweries with our eight beers on tap and over 40 wines to choose from, including 14 by the glass. Whilst quaffing on a fine Three Boys Pilsener you might pause on the fine deck in front of you kindly sponsored by an unknown beer baron. We select our wines supporting local vineyards in Waipara and Banks Peninsula but also in our belief in what varietals grow best in each region. So where you will find a couple of Marlborough Sauvignon Blanc's, you will also find an Argentinian Malbec, a Californian Chardonnay, a Rose from Provence and even a Puglian Primitivo. Our espresso coffee utilizes coffee beans roasted by Hummingbird also in Christchurch

Bar facilities include a pool table, a jukebox and a kick-arse pinball machine.

The main bar area features a comprehensive heating and cooling system, however, in winter you are likely to be greeted with a roaring open fire, which has sadly become a rarity in Canterbury. Not forgetting to mention our stupendous world famous views (truly) some very groovy surround sounds and free wifi.

Whilst we don't profess to be 'mixologists" we can mix you up a decent spanking martini, margarita or a range of classic cocktails. pictured to the right is our current creation, a very potent 'Zelenskyy or as we like to call it a 'f*%k Putin', $5 of each one goes towards the Ukrainian Red Cross appeal
