This "Gastro-pub" at the very top of Courtenay has it all. The Tasting Room caters for every little idiosyncrasy of your typical Wellingtonian. Locally brewed beer, strong Wellington coffee, an outstanding wine list and high quality tasting plates are all proudly on offer here. Allied to a laid back setup and a TV screen tucked in the corner, the Tasting Room is capable of entertaining quiet couples out for dinner and sports loving locals without the other feeling obtrusive. One of my favourite places to hang out on a Saturday.

Fav bar on Courtney place! Really funky layout and some awesome staff! Got me my morning coffee and headed back in the afternoon for a beverage or two! Great range of beer for all you experts! Highly recommend this bar!!

Awesome beer, highly recommend.

Eat here if you like hearty, heavy food.
