... years, but had only been open a month, we found out later. Jon had a burger and I had fush and chups, as we have renamed fish and chips with a NZ accent, both of which were delish.

We sampled several wines, surprisingly, one of our favourites was a Riesling (this region grows Riesling grapes well, apparently) and they had a spectacular (but very expensive we found out, when we bought a bottle and he rang it up!)
