Join us for the popular African Dance Party to enjoy a special African atmosphere rarely found in New Zealand. DJs Shaka & The Chief will spin the latest music from the mother land. Entry is by Koha from 9pm.

Death by Stereo - Thursday 1 June
Balancing chaos and consciousness is no easy feat, and few bands will ever do it as well as Death By Stereo. Brutal and brutally honest their songs come swinging at you like a bag of bricks as they embrace the extremities of hardcore and the fluid riffs of metal.

With support from Rearview Murder and Damaged this is a show that many will not want to miss. Tickets from Ticketek and Real Groovy.

Monteith's Wild Food Challenge Our entry has been confirmed for the Wild Food Challenge in the informal section. I am curious to see what the kitchen might do with Venison sausage served with game pie, parsnip mash & gravy matched with Monteith's Original?

Look our for it on the menu soon.....

Office Shout - Publicans Dozen & Platter - Subject "PLATTER"
Send an email with PLATTER in the subject line to go in to the draw for the publicans dozen and platter - Good Luck!
