These guys make the best burger in Hamilton. There Kiwi burger is to die for. Chicken one is also pretty dam good to.

This is the sort of place that's always 'on'. It's the perfect sport to sip tea and coffee all day and then roll into it;s night time setting where it becomes a hip, lively joint that is so well frequented by Hamiltonians. It's the place where I can wind down, do some writing, do some thinking, and rejuvenate my creativity.

I love eating at the cook, the breads and dips is my favourite. It's a great please to spend time with friends on a cold winter night for a Quiz night. If you want a more private area there is a great up stairs area that looks over the park.

Great food. Relaxing Sunday venue.

Will come here again.

What a great bar to watch the rugby in! Great Drinks, great crowd, and a massive big screen to watch everything unfold on!

Fantastic food!  Thanks for the lovely lunch!!!

Was here for a comedy show and few drinks with mates. Cheap meals and drinks, heaps of tables upstairs and down

Monday nights are quiz night, and they don't get much better than at the cook!  Take some mates, form a team and see if you can knock the regulars off their perch.
